One of the president's daughters is heading to the altar, her parents announced in a statement Thursday.

President Bush and first lady Laura Bush said that Jenna Bush, one of the president's 25-year-old twin daughters, will be marrying Henry Hager, the son of Mr. and Mrs. John H. Hager of Richmond, Va.

The younger Hager, who is attending the University of Virginia School of Business, has been a White House aide and worked on Mr. Bush's re-election campaign.

2The couple became engaged on Aug. 15, 2007. They have been dating for several years, and are often seen together at Bush family functions and formal events, such as a White House dinner in November 2005 in honor of Britain's Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

No wedding date has been set, said Mrs. Bush's press secretary, Sally McDonough.

John H. Hager was recently elected chairman of Virginia's GOP. The former lieutenant governor recently resigned from his post as assistant secretary of the Department of Education's Office of Special Education and Rehabilitation Services.
