Sergey Brin, who became a billionaire after co-finding Google has married his longtime girlfriend Nicole Shanahan.
The couple, who had been dating since 2015 made their relationship public while appearing in 2016 Met Ball, married in 2018. They are also parents to a baby girl, who was born in late 2018.
Secret Wedding and Fertility Issues
The couple married in a low-key wedding and only a close circle of friends and family were invited. Moreover, few knew about it until she spoke out about her challenges with fertility options.
Nicole Shanahan spoke at the launch of the Center for Female Reproductive Longevity and Equality, “Ten percent of women are infertile by the time they turn 35, and just five years later, at the age of 40, a woman has only a 5% chance of becoming pregnant . . . I committed myself to help future generations of women have more choices.”
The Shanahan and the Sergey Brin Family Foundation donated $6 million to the center last year.
Emotionally, she went on to add, “Like many women who are not quite ready to start a family in their early 30s, I decided, or so I thought at the time, to take matters into my own hands and freeze embryos. However, after three failed attempts at embryo-making and three dozen visits to in vitro fertilization clinics around the Bay Area, I learned that I was not nearly as unshakable as I thought I was... Personally, I find it crazy that my reproductive organs are considered geriatric long before any other organ even begins to show the slightest sign of decline.”
34-year-old Shanahan is a lawyer and founder of tech firm ClearAccessIP while her new husband Brin is president of Alphabet Inc.
This is the second marriage for Sergey Brin. He was married to entrepreneur Anne Wojcicki from 2007 to 2015 and has two children with her- son Benji Wojin (born in 2008) and daughter Chloe Wojin (born in 2011).
The former husband-wife had divorced after Wojcicki discovered email exchanges between him and a young Google employee named Amanda Rosenberg.
