Lauren Sanchez was all smiles as she showed off her stunning diamond engagement ring with her fiancé Jess Bezos during a trip to Monaco this week.
Wearing a bright orange sundress with a plunging neckline, Lauren and Jeff held hands and packed on the PDA as they made their way to a boat with friends. Once located, Lauren was seen lovingly stroking Jeff’s head as he relaxed and extended his arms to soak up the sun – and allowing the $2.5 million ring to shine in the rays Gave.
Lauren was accompanied by three of her children on the outing: her 22-year-old son, Nikko Gonzales, from her previous marriage to former NFL star Tony Gonzales, and two younger children, Evan Whitesell, 17, and Eleanor Whitesell, 15, from her marriage to executive Patrick Whitesell To
The newly-wed couple have been making the most of their time in Portofino, and earlier in the week, arrived in style via helicopter on board Koru’s remarkable $75 million support vessel with a helipad.
As the third richest person globally, Jeff is no stranger to extravagant vacations. However, this summer is bound to be one for the books, as he proposed to Lauren aboard his luxurious superyacht. The proposal took place off the coast of Cannes, where they were enjoying a Mediterranean adventure on the inaugural voyage of the Kaoru. With a length of 417 feet and a height of 230 feet, the Koru is one of the largest sailing yachts in the world.
Lauren, 53, is a news anchor, TV host and entertainment reporter, and she said ‘yes’ to Jeff’s proposal earlier in 2023. The couple first went public with their relationship in January 2019 after Jeff split from novelist and philanthropist, 59. Mackenzie Scott. They were married for 25 years and have four children.
At the time, Lauren was also in the midst of a divorce after 13 years of marriage to Patrick. The former entertainment reporter and news anchor has known her future husband for many years, and the two were photographed together at various entertainment-related events as far back as 2016.
Together with Jeff, he has launched the Bezos Earth Fund, through which the billionaire has pledged $10 billion in 2020 to fight climate change and protect the natural world; Lauren is co-chair of the organization.
Lauren called Jeff “the man of my dreams” in a lengthy tribute she posted to honor his birthday in January. “Happy birthday to the man of my dreams, who lights up my world with his laugh and kind heart. You have shown me that no great love is fought bravely. For always being by my side and loving the most Thank you and supportive partner.I am so grateful for the memories we have made and the adventures that are yet to come.
She ended in Spanish: “Te amo con todo mi corazón,” which means, “I love you with all my heart.”
