Hillary and Bill’s daughter Chelsea Clinton, 41, arrived at the University of California Irvine Medical Center this morning.
Hillary, donning a black and white tunic, headband, face mask and sunglasses carried a coffee as she walked into the hospital alongside Chelsea, who wore jeans, a jacket and baseball cap.
Bill, 75, was admitted into the hospital on Tuesday after a urological infection developed into sepsis, a life-threating reaction to an infection.

Bill’s doctors said that the urinary tract infection developed into a condition known as urosepsis.
His spokesman Angel Urena said on Friday night that Bill had to spend yet another night in the hospital to receive intra-venous antibiotics for the infection, which was unrelated to Covid-19.
Biden remarked while at the University of Connecticut on Friday that he had spoken to Bill. ‘Oh, I wanted to see how he was doing… I’ve been trying to get a hold of him. He’s doing fine, he really is.’
Biden added: ‘He’s not in any serious condition.
‘He is getting out shortly, as I understand it. Whether that’s tomorrow or the next day, I don’t know.’
Bill could reportedly be released onto a regiment of oral antibiotics at home as early as this weekend.
Biden also noted that he hasn’t seen Bill in a while and plans to ‘have some lunch’ with him in the near future, when he’s fully recovered.
The blood infection that forced the former president to be hospitalized on Tuesday was reportedly caused by the bacteria known as E Coli, his doctors confirmed on Friday morning.
Urena noted that the 75-year-old’s white blood count was high but has since decreased, indicating that ‘all health indicators are trending in the right direction’.
‘President Clinton continues to be in excellent spirits, and is deeply grateful for the outstanding care he is receiving and the well wishes that people have sent from across America and around the world,’ Urena added.

Bill, who had a quadruple heart bypass in 2004, was in Southern California for a ‘series of events’ when he fell ill, CBS medical contributor Dr David Agus said.
‘At the first event he started to feel light headed, nausea, vomiting and was brought to a hospital,’ doctors told him.
‘At that hospital he was found to have an infection in his blood and they did a CAT scan, looked over his body and even his brain. And the infection source was found to be the urine.
‘The bacteria that grew out was called E Coli, and he was put on what we call a broad spectrum antibiotics,’ the doctor explained.
But he has been talking to staff and family, and walking around, it was reported.
Hillary visited her husband on Thursday and Friday, too – both times alongside her longtime confidante Huma Abedin.
On Friday morning Hillary and Abedin, who was married to disgraced New York lawmaker Anthony Weiner, checked in on Bill.
The former first lady was pictured in a blue dress, flanked by security guards, as she entered the hospital while a masked Abedin wore blue jeans and a floral blouse.
Later that night a somber-looking Hillary was pictured entering the unit to visit Bill for the second time that day before being driven away in the back of a car.
Abedin was seen with her then as well and the two had changed. Hillary wore a grey jacket, black pants and kitten keels alongside Abedin, who wore a dress and black blazer.
Hillary reportedly represented them both at a previously-scheduled event in Southern California before arriving at the medical center.
She was first pictured visiting her husband on Thursday night as news of the former President’s hospitalization broke.
