Do we hear wedding bells on the streets of Soho? Amazon founder and part-time astronaut Jeff Bezos and his girlfriend Lauren Sanchez were pictured in New York City today, Sanchez showing off a particularly notable piece of jewelry.
Sanchez wore a large ring on his left ring finger. Although the ring is on a particularly notable number, the couple did not publicly announce an engagement. And, from his Instagram posts, it looks like Sanchez has been wearing this ring (on that finger) for at least a few days now. Sanchez paired rock with a white jacket and a Hermès Birkin bag as she and Bezos left for lunch at Cipriani Soho. The couple reportedly dined with Sanchez’s ex, former NFL tight end Tony Gonzalez and his wife, October Gonzalez.
In July, however, Sanchez was seen wearing a different (still very large) ring on her engagement finger. She wore the heart-shaped diamond stone during Bezos’ Blue Origin launch, already sparking engagement rumors.
Bezos and his ex-wife, MacKenzie Scott, had a very public divorce in early 2019. Since then, Bezos has stepped down as CEO of Amazon (he is now executive chairman) and has undertaken a number of others. projects, like getting started in spacing. He was a passenger on the first crewed flight of the New Shepard, a rocket made by his space company, Blue Origin, in July.
Meanwhile, after receiving a large sum of money from his divorce, Scott signed The Giving Pledge, a pledge to donate the majority of his roughly $ 35 billion net worth. In 2020, Scott gave nearly $ 6 billion to 500 organizations. In June, making a series of grants for the third time in less than a year, Scott donated an additional $ 2.74 billion.
Bezos and Sanchez have run in the same circles for years and started spending time together in 2016. She became especially close to Bezos when she and her ex-husband, Patrick Whitesell, split in 2018. The couple has been dating publicly since early 2019.
