Chelsea Clinton Engaged To Marc Mezvinsky

Chelsea Clinton is engaged to her longtime boyfriend Marc Mezvinsky, a spokesman for former President Clinton told ABC News.

People magazine got a hold of the couple's email to friends and family sharing the news. They're planning to wed next summer.

Engagement rumors were swirling earlier this year; Hillary Clinton shot them down in July.

"He's great. He's a great human being," Bill Clinton said of his future son-in-law.

Mezvinsky works at Goldman Sachs; his parents are both former members of Congress. His father pleaded guilty in 2002 to swindling dozens of investors out of $10 million after getting caught up in a Nigerian scam. Interestingly, his mother lost her seat in a conservative congressional district after one term in part because she chose to vote for President Clinton's first budget.

The couple became friends as teenagers in Washington and both attended Stanford University. They now live in New York, where Mezvinsky works and Clinton is attending graduate school at Columbia University's School of Public Health.
