(Newser) – Reports that Chelsea Clinton married beau Marc Mezvinsky last summer were false, but now they’re engaged for real, the two revealed in a mass email on Friday. A spokesman for Bill Clinton confirmed that this time Chelsea, 29, really is tying the knot with Mezvinsky, son of former House members Ed Mezvinsky and Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky. The couple became engaged shortly before Thanksgiving.

The email read: “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.”
