From NBC's Andrea Mitchell
Adding to the tabloid stories out there (Tiger Woods, those party crashers)...
Aides to the Clintons confirm that Chelsea and Marc Mezvinsky became engaged on Thanksgiving Day -- and will be married next summer. The couple sent an email to friends, alluding to the flurry of false rumors last summer that they were getting married then. The Clintons family was hounded by those false reports.
Now it is true -- that Chelsea is marrying her childhood friend, a fellow Stanford graduate. Marc's mother is former Democratic Rep. Marjorie Margolies Mezvinsky, who also at one point worked for WNBC. His father is a former Iowa member of Congress who ended up facing legal difficulties and some jail time.
The two sent out an email the morning of Friday November 27 saying, "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."
