Chelsea Clinton has engaged to her long-time boyfriend Marc Mezvinsky, an investment banker, according to Bill Clinton's charitable foundation on Monday.

She announced her engagement in a mass email to friends. The couple plans to marry next summer.

The 29-year-old Chelsea is the only child of former U.S. President Bill Clinton and current Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who now works at a New York-based hedge fund.

The announcement followed widespread but false reports over last summer that the pair had planned an August wedding at the resort island of Martha's Vineyard.

"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," said the email.

There were no details on the wedding plans.
