Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and his partner Lauren SÃÂ¡nchez are engaged, a source close to the couple tells CNN.
No additional details about the proposal or pending wedding plans were immediately available.
Bezos and SÃÂ¡nchez, a former broadcast journalist and now philanthropist, first went public with their relationship in 2019. Since Bezos and SÃÂ¡nchez began dating, they have kept details of their lives together mostly private outside of being photographed at various events.
In 2022, the couple spoke with CNN at their Washington DC home for their first joint sit-down interview where they talked about their philanthropic work toward strategically giving away Bezos's vast wealth to a variety of causes.
When it comes to their charitable efforts, SÃÂ¡nchez told CNN that they make "really great teammates," adding with a laugh that they can also be "kind of boring."
Bezos went on to describe the Emmy award-winning journalist as "the most generous, most big-hearted person that you would ever meet," and said that she is "an inspiration."
The billionaire is also the founder of space company Blue Origin, and was aboard a 2021 flight into space and back on Blue Origin's New Shepard rocket.
