CHELSEA CLINTON, the 29-year-old daughter of former US president Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, has become engaged to her longtime boyfriend, investment banker Marc Mezvinsky.
The couple sent an email to friends announcing the news. They said they were looking at a possible wedding next summer. Matt McKenna, a spokesman for the former president, confirmed the engagement yesterday.
Mezvinsky is a son of former Pennsylvania Rep Marjorie Margolies- Mezvinsky and former Iowa Rep Ed Mezvinsky, longtime friends of the Clintons. Ed Mezvinsky was released from federal prison last year after pleading guilty in 2002 to charges of bank and wire fraud.
The couple became friends as teenagers in Washington and both attended Stanford University.
They now live in New York, where Mezvinsky works at Goldman Sachs and Clinton is attending graduate school at Columbia University’s School of Public Health.
