ABC News has learned that Chelsea Clinton is engaged to her longtime boyfriend Marc Mezvinsky, a spokesman for former President Clinton confirmed to ABC News.
Clinton, 29, is the only child of the former president and current Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. She and Mezvinsky — the son of former Rep. Ed Mezvinsky, D-Iowa, and former Rep. Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinksy, D-Penn. — became friends in Washington, DC, and closer friends when they both attended Stanford University.
The two sent out an email the morning of Friday November 27 saying: "We're sorry for the mass email but we wanted to wish everyone a belated Happy Thanksgiving! We also wanted to share that we are engaged! We didn't get married this past summer despite the stories to the contrary, but we are looking toward next summer and hope you all will be there to celebrate with us. Happy Holidays! Chelsea & Marc."
Clinton spokesman Matt McKenna said the couple became engaged before Thanksgiving. He noted that clearly all previous reporting by media outlets about Chelsea having been married over the Summer was obvioiusly incorrect.
