Chelsea Clinton, the 29-year-old daughter of former president Bill Clinton and current Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, is engaged to her longtime boyfriend, Marc Mezvinsky, the Associated Press reports. The couple announced their engagement in an e-mail to their friends, and a Clinton spokesman confirmed it Monday.

"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."

Like Clinton, Mezvinsky is the child of a political couple: his parents, Ed Mezvinsky and Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky, were Democratic representatives from Iowa and Pennsylvania, respectively. The engaged couple also share a familiarity with political scandal. Mezvinsky's father spent five years in prison for defrauding investors of more than $10 million.

Clinton and Mezvinsky met as teenagers in Washington, and both later attended Stanford University. They currently live in New York, where Mezvinsky works at Goldman Sachs and Clinton attends Columbia University's School of Public Health.

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.
