Do we hear wedding bells on the streets of Soho? Amazon founder and part-time astronaut, Jeff Bezos, and his girlfriend, Lauren Sanchez, were photographed in New York City today, with Sanchez showing off a particularly noticeable piece of jewelry.
Sanchez wore a large ring on her left ring finger. Though the ring is on a particularly notable digit, the couple has not publicly announced an engagement. And, based on her Instagram posts, it seems that Sanchez has been wearing this ring (on this finger) for at least a few days now. Sanchez paired the rock with a white jacket and Hermès Birkin bag as she and Bezos left lunch at Cipriani Soho. The pair were reportedly dining 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 rock to Bezos's Blue Origin launch, sparking engagement rumors even then.
Bezos and his ex-wife, MacKenzie Scott, had a very public divorce in early 2019. Since then, Bezos has stepped down as Amazon CEO (he is now executive chairman) and has taken up a number of other endeavors, like launching himself into space. He was a passenger on the first crewed flight of the New Shepard, a rocket ship made by his space company, Blue Origin, in July.
Meanwhile, after receiving a hefty sum of money from her divorce, Scott signed The Giving Pledge, a commitment to give away the majority of her approximately $35 billion net worth. In 2020, Scott gave away nearly $6 billion to 500 organizations. In June, making a round of grants for the third time in under a year, Scott donated another $2.74 billion.
Bezos and Sanchez ran in the same circles for years, and began spending time together in 2016. She became particularly close to Bezos when she and her ex-husband, Patrick Whitesell, separated in 2018. The couple has been publicly dating since early 2019.
