Jeff Bezos is set to become the latest billionaire Groom as he has gotten engaged to his lover, Lauren Sánchez.
Jeff Bezos and Lauren Sánchez are now Engaged.
Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and his partner Lauren Sánchez are now engaged, according to a source close to the couple. No additional details about the proposal or pending wedding plans were immediately available as the entire affair seems shrouded in covert arrangements. Bezos and Sánchez, a former broadcast journalist and now philanthropist, first went public with their relationship in 2019. Since Bezos and Sánchez began dating, they have kept details of their lives together mostly private outside of being photographed at various events.
In 2022, the couple spoke with reporters at their Washington DC home for their first joint sit-down interview where they talked about their philanthropic work toward strategically giving away Bezos’s vast wealth to a variety of causes. When it comes to their charitable efforts, Sánchez expressed that they make “really great teammates,” adding with a laugh that they can also be “kind of boring”. Bezos went on to describe the Emmy award-winning journalist as “the most generous, most big-hearted person that you would ever meet,” and said that she is “an inspiration.”
The billionaire is also the founder of space company Blue Origin, and was aboard a 2021 flight into space and back on Blue Origin’s New Shepard rocket. Sánchez, who is also a former helicopter pilot, mentioned that she, too, plans to head to space in the coming years, saying she’ll be joined by “a great group of females”.
Bezos was previously married to MacKenzie Scott for 25 years, with whom he shares four children. Sánchez has three children from previous relationships, and was married to Hollywood agent Patrick Whitesell for 13 years before finalizing their divorce in 2019. It is set to be one of the most lavish and extravagant weddings of the 2020s and it will no doubt be a union of American royalty, so to speak
