Bill Gates’ daughter to marry Egyptian equestrian


DUBAI – The eldest daughter of Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates is engaged to an Egyptian equestrian.

Nayel Nassar, 29, proposed to 23-year-old Jennifer Gates during a skiing holiday over the weekend.

Jennifer, the oldest of Bill and Melinda Gates’ three children, announced her engagement with an Instagram post on Wednesday (January 29).

“Nayel Nassar, you are one of a kind. Absolutely swept me off my feet this past weekend, surprising me in the most meaningful location over one of our many shared passions,” she wrote. “I can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives learning, growing, laughing and loving together. Yes a million times over.”

Nassar also shared his own post, saying that he is “feeling like the luckiest (and happiest) man in the world right about now”.

“Jenn, you are everything I could have possibly imagined … and so much more,” he wrote. “I can’t wait to keep growing together through this journey called life, and I simply can’t imagine mine without you anymore. Love you more than you can possibly imagine, and thank you for making every single day feel like a dream to me. Here’s to forever!”

The couple has been together for more than two years, and share a hobby: riding horses. Nassar, born in Chicago and raised in Kuwait, trained in Europe as an equestrian and will represent Egypt at the Summer Olympics in Tokyo.

The couple will reportedly live in in New York, where Gates is studying medicine. She reportedly lives in a $5 million apartment on Fifth Avenue that her parents purchased.
