Hillary Clinton to sit down with Ellen DeGeneres

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Hillary Clinton will sit down for an interview with Ellen DeGeneres during the week of Sept. 8, according to the show's Twitter account.

"These 3 women are changing the world," @TheEllenShow tweeted Monday. "They're also on my premiere week, starting September 8th."

The tweet included a photo of Clinton, along with photos of Caitlyn Jenner, the athlete formerly known as Bruce Jenner, and Malala Yousafzai, the youngest ever Nobel Prize laureate for her work as an activist for female education.

Representatives for the show did not immediately respond to questions about when Clinton's interview will air.

Clinton's first national television interview as a candidate was with CNN's Brianna Keilar in July. Clinton also spoke with Maria Elena Salinas of Univision earlier this month.

Bill Clinton is the most recent member of the Clinton family to sit down with DeGeneres. The former president talked with host in November 2014 -- before Hillary Clinton had declared her 2016 candidacy -- and chatted about the prospect of his wife running.

"I understand you want to make a big announcement about your wife today," DeGeneres said.

Clinton laughed, "I don't know what Hillary is going to do. That is the truth. If I did, I wouldn't tell you, but I don't know."

Hillary Clinton stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show during her last presidential run in 2007, where Clinton talked to the openly gay host about how she then supported civil unions for gay couples, not marriage.

"I am very much in favor of civil unions with full equality of benefits and I want to see that developed as we move forward," Clinton said, before adding that she didn't know whether someone could run for president in support for gay marriage and win.

Clinton announced in 2013 that she supports same-sex marriage and has made marriage equality a cornerstone of her campaign.

"I've always believed that marriage should be left to the states, because that is where it has always been," she told DeGeneres in 2007.
