A confidential source revealed to Page Six that Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and his girlfriend Lauren Sanchez have taken their relationship to the next level and are now engaged.
The couple has been enjoying a lavish time in the South of France, attending the Cannes Film Festival aboard Bezos’ extravagant $500 million yacht, which even boasts a mermaid statue resembling Sanchez on its bow.
Speculation about Sanchez’s engagement began circulating after she was spotted wearing a dazzling diamond ring earlier this week.
Since their romance started in 2018, the 59-year-old billionaire and the television journalist have been inseparable, rarely seen apart from each other.
Although their relationship became public in 2019, they kept a low profile until Bezos finalized his divorce from his former wife of 25 years, MacKenzie Scott.
Following their time together and globe-trotting adventures, Sanchez made headlines in November 2022 when she expressed her desire to embark on a space journey.
When asked about the potential crew for the trip, she enthusiastically exclaimed, “It’ll be a fantastic group of women.”
In a January interview with WSJ Magazine, the former TV presenter couldn’t help but shower Bezos with praise, even though she hinted that he wouldn’t be joining her on the space expedition. Sanchez described him as “the most loving human I know,” highlighting his constant smile and his positive impact on her life.
She further expressed her adoration for the businessman in a birthday tribute published in January, where she effusively praised him.
