Chelsea Clinton, the only child of former President Bill Clinton and current Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, has announced her engagement to long-time beau Marc Mezvinsky.

The pair delivered the happy news by a mass email sent out on Friday, a copy of which was provided by a spokesperson at the former president’s charitable foundation.

“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,” the email said.

There were widespread — and as it turns out false — reports over the summer that the pair planned to get married at the resort island of Martha’s Vineyard in August. There was no further detail on what the final wedding plan might be.

Despite repeated denials by Clinton staffers of  impending nuptials this past summer, the rumor mill cranked into high gear when it became known that President Barack Obama was going to vacation on Martha’s Vineyard.
