Rumours have been spreading for months that the couple is all set to tie the knot, mostly due to speculation about a massive heart-shaped ring Sanchez wore.

Notably, Bezos and Lauren, a former broadcast journalist, started dating each other in 2018.

News broke that they were a couple in 2019, but the duo kept a low profile until his divorce from his wife of 25 years, MacKenzie Scott, was finalized.

Bezos and MacKenzie share four children.

MacKenzie received $38 billion in the divorce settlement, pledging half to charity. The settlement made her the third richest woman in the world with 25 per cent of the exes' joint stock in Amazon, though Bezos kept voting control over her nearly 20 million shares.

Sanchez, on the other hand, stated in November 2022 that she intends to follow in the footsteps of Blue Origin's founder and travel to space.

 She was earlier married to Patrick Whitesell with whom she shares two kids, Ella and Evan. She also shares 22-year-old son Nikko with former NFL player Tony Gonzalez.
