Jennifer Gates and her husband Nayel Nassar are expecting their first child together. The daughter of Microsoft co-founder and billionaire Bill Gates and philanthropist ex-wife Melinda Gates announced the big news via Instagram on Thanksgiving.
The couple captioned the Instagram post, “thankful” and also featured a green heart emoji and a baby bottle. The picture also showed the mom-to-be holding her baby bump in a gorgeous green dress.
Like Jennifer Gates, Nasser is also an equestrian and has competed in the Olympics.
“Horses are just one part of our life, but we love the sport...He’s a professional, and I do this as an amateur. So, to be able to share our love and passion for horses with each other is just incredible,” the Stanford grad and the owner of Evergate Stables said in a 2019 interview with CNN’s EQ equestrian show.
Gates, 26, and Nassar, 31 announced their engagement in a January 2020 Instagram post.
“Absolutely swept me off my feet this past weekend, surprising me in the most meaningful location over one of our many shared passions. I can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives learning, growing, laughing, and loving together. Yes a million times over,” she had written of the engagement at the time.
The Olympian also had taken to social media to announce his engagement to his longtime girlfriend.
“SHE SAID YES!! I’m 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. 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!” he had shared.
They have now been married for a year, having tied the knot at her Westchester County horse farm in October 2021 after almost four years of dating.
