# bivariate normal distribution?

Forums:

Given two normally distributed random variables with the additional condition that the distribution one of them conditioned on the other is also normal, is the joint distribution necessarily normal? Assume that the variables are NOT independent.

If so, I would like to see a proof or a reference.
