Chelsea Clinton Engaged

While rumors swirled earlier that Chelsea Clinton was engaged, this time it seems to be the real thing that she will marry her boyfriend, Marc Mezvinsky:
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 and former Rep. Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinksy -- became friends in Washington, D.C., and became closer friends when they both attended Stanford University.

The couple sent out an e-mail the Friday morning, Nov. 27, saying: "We're sorry for the mass e-mail 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."

Mezvinksy also comes from a political background:
Mezvinsky also has a political pedigree and is no stranger to political scandal. His father, former Iowa Rep. Ed Mezvinsky, was released from federal prison last April after serving a sentence for his role in a Nigerian fraud scheme.
