Fiancé vs. Fiancée

I've seen both spellings used and still feel the urge to pronounce this with a French accent when I say it out loud, but I digress. So which is correct?

According to, "Fiancé refers to a male engaged to be married, while fiancée refers to a female engaged to be married." 

This explanation is also listed on these websites:

And it's noted on a wedding website so clearly it must be true! haha So I guess by referring to my man as fiancée I was wrong, oops! Though I don't have my AP Stylebook handy, from my web searches this info seems to be corroborated so I will henceforth refer to the correct spelling of fiancé (French accent and all.)
