Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is now officially off the market. After nearly five years together, Bezos has proposed to his girlfriend, Lauren Sanchez, according to Page Six. Rumors of the couple’s engagement have swirled for months after Sanchez was spotted sporting a heart-shaped ring.
“He makes me laugh all the time. He can be goofy,” Sanchez once told The Wall Street Journal about Bezos.
The couple’s love story began to unfold publicly in 2019 after news of Bezos’ divorce from his wife, Mackenzie Scott, came to light. Their relationship journey has been dotted with various sightings at major events, their first joint sit-down interview, and shared philanthropic efforts.
Engagement Rumors and Confirmations
The billionaire couple are currently in the South of France for the Cannes Film Festival and have made his $500 million yacht their temporary home. Interestingly, the yacht features a mermaid, bearing a striking resemblance to Sanchez, adorning the prow.
A source close to the couple confirmed the engagement news to CNN, although further details about the proposal or wedding plans remain undisclosed.
Bezos and Sanchez: The Love Story
- Bezos and Sanchez went public with their relationship in 2019
- They kept their relationship mostly private
- They spoke about their philanthropic work during a sit-down interview with CNN in 2022
During their 2022 interview with CNN at their Washington DC home, they discussed their collaborative efforts in strategically giving away Bezos’s vast wealth to various causes. Sanchez, a former broadcast journalist now philanthropist, stated they make “really great teammates.” Bezos described Sanchez as “the most generous, most big-hearted person that you would ever meet” and his “inspiration.”
Shared Visions and Space Adventures
Jeff Bezos, who also founded the space company Blue Origin, took a flight into space on the company’s New Shepard rocket in 2021. Sanchez, a former helicopter pilot, revealed that she, too, has plans for a space journey, accompanied by “a great group of females.”
“They don’t see the man who puts everything aside to help a sick friend, but my eyes do,” Sanchez wrote about Bezos in a social media post on his birthday.
Bezos was previously married to MacKenzie Scott for 25 years, with whom he shares four children. Sanchez, on the other hand, has three children from previous relationships and was married to Hollywood agent Patrick Whitesell for 13 years before their divorce in 2019.
The union of these two high-profile personalities — a tech titan and an accomplished journalist — surely adds another dimension to their ‘billion-dollar love story.’ As they embark on this new journey together, we will continue to keep an eye on the couple’s future adventures, both terrestrial and possibly extraterrestrial.
