Former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton is getting hitched. The 29-year-old who grew up before our eyes during dad Bill’s eight years in The White House has announced her engagement to boyfriend Marc Mezvinsky, a spokesman for former President Clinton confirmed to ABC News Monday.
McKenna confirmed that Chelsea and the investment banker got engaged on Thanksgiving and announced it in an e-mail to friends. Mezvinsky — the son of former Rep. Ed Mezvinsky, D-Iowa, and former Rep. Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinksy, D-Penn. — became friends with Chelsea during their years as coeds at Stanford University. Chelsea’s future father-in-law Ed was released from federal prison last year after pleading guilty in 2002 to charges of bank and wire fraud.
“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!” the couple said in a message to family and friends last Friday. “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.”
