The 59-year-old CEO of Amazon Jeff Bezos and the 53-year-old Emmy-winning journalist Lauren Sanchez have made their engagement public, beginning a new chapter in a romance that first made news in January 2019.
Their public love affair began when People magazine revealed their developing romance, which has since been shared and examined. Since then, the two of them have frequently discussed each other on their social media accounts, expressing their love and appreciation for one another.
After a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron in February 2020, where they talked climate change and sustainability, Sánchez made one of his first appearances on Bezos’ Instagram. They were able to show their passion for environmental issues through their joint work at the Bezos Earth Fund, demonstrating their mutual interest in these issues.
Their fans can get a look into their relationship by viewing the adorable and private moments that populate their Instagram pages. Sánchez wrote a touching birthday message to Bezos in January, expressing her love and appreciation for him. The article ended with a passionate proclamation of love in Spanish and a carousel of the times they had experienced together.
Posts for Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day stressed their relationship even more; on Mother’s Day, Bezos honored Sánchez and other important women in his life.
Bezos was wed to MacKenzie Scott from 1993 to 2019 before their romance. With Scott’s 4% ownership stake in Amazon valued at over $36 billion, their divorce made headlines as the priciest in history. Bezos and Scott are parents to four kids in all.
Contrarily, Sanchez has two children from her former marriage to Hollywood agent Patrick Whitesell, which lasted from 2005 until 2019. In addition, she has a 22-year-old son named Nikko Gonzalez from a prior union with Tony Gonzalez, a former NFL player.
