Washington: Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and his girlfriend Lauren Sanchez are now engaged, almost five years after they went public about their relationship in 2019. The couple started dating each other in 2018. Rumours of their wedding have been doing rounds ever since Sanchez, a former broadcast journalist and now philanthropist, was spotted with a massive heart-shaped ring.
Currently, the couple is in Fance for the Cannes Film Festival, attending the star-studded party circuit. They were pictured looking loved-up aboard his superyacht at the weekend at Cannes during their Mediterranean odyssey. They recently attended the “Killers of the Flower Moon” premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.
Bezos proposed to Sanchez on board his $500million superyacht, as per the reports.

Though the couple have been dating for years now, they managed a low profile until his divorce with his wife MacKenzie Scott was finalised. MacKenzie and Bezos were married for 25 years and share four children. Lauren Sanchez was earlier married to Patrick Whitesell with whom she shares two kids, Ella and Evan. She also shares 22-year-old son Nikko with former NFL player Tony Gonzalez.
Sanchez said in November 2022 that she plans to follow in Bezos’s footsteps and go to space. “It’ll be a great group of females,” she said of the trip’s potential crew. The former news anchor said Bezos would not join her on the expedition.
“He’s so happy, he inspires me every day, he makes me a better person every day; he’s the most loving human I know,” she told the outlet.
She also raved about the businessman in a sweet birthday tribute in January.
