Washington (CNN) – Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, is engaged, a spokesman for the former president confirms to CNN.
Chelsea Clinton will marry longtime boyfriend Marc Mezvinsky, said the spokesman, who added that reports earlier this summer about the engagement and wedding had been "completely false."
The couple sent a message to friends and famiy announcing the decision. "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"
Marc Mezvinsky is the son of former Rep. Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky, the Pennsylvania congresswoman who lost her re-election bid in 1994 after casting the deciding vote on President Clinton's economic plan.

Wow, a beautiful young woman, who got a great education, a good job, and now is pursuing another dream. Good for Chelsea. She kept her nose clean, worked hard, and stayed out of the limelight. She is a great role model for young girls.
Who cares? Leave her alone and focus on dying homeless,soldiers,wars, as well as world dying!!!!! What in the world are wrong with you people???? WE are still devastated by Katrina, everyone in U.S. losing their jobs, and that is WHAT THE NEWS is???? Come on – really – get a grip !!! WE DO NOT CARE !!!!! What about all the babies out there that get no help? Where are you on that one????? No let's talk about a rich wedding!!!! Again, WHO cares?
The 2010 HAMMER STRETCHED SUV LIMOUSINE will be the best choice. If they can not find one let me know. I know the Limo business more than ten years.
I wish you a joyful and prosperous marriage.
I must say congrats to Chelsea & Marc for taking the right step in the right direction. I wish them a happy married life.
