Hyderabad: Jennifer Gates, the eldest daughter of Microsoft founder and billionaire Bill Gates, has tied the knot with Egyptian equestrian Nayel Nassar. Jennifer is married to her 30-year-old fiancé Nayel Nassar from Egypt.
The couple got engaged in January last year. A reception was also held in New York on Saturday afternoon to celebrate Jennifer and Nassar’s wedding.
In addition to Bill Gates, Jennifer’s mother Melinda also attended the wedding. Bill Gates and Melinda separated in August this year. Nasser and Jennifer first publicized their relationship in 2017.
Jennifer is also a horse rider like her husband Nassar and once said that they have come close to each other because of sports.
People may know a lot about Bill Gates and his daughter Jennifer, but hardly anyone knows about Nayel Nassar, the son-in-law of the richest family in the world.
Nassar’s parents, who live in Chicago, are from Egypt. Nasser spent his early life in Kuwait, where his parents owned an architecture and design firm. Nassar has a brother named Sharaf Nassar.
Nassar currently lives in California and is a professional equestrian. He has competed in many major competitions so far. Nassar qualified for the finals of the International Federation for Equestrian Sports (FEI) World Cup in 2013, 2014 and 2017. He has also competed in the FII World Equestrian Games (2014).
Nassar speaks English, French and Arabic. Like his wife Jennifer, he is a graduate from Stanford University. Jennifer graduated in 2018 with a degree in Human Biology.
Nassar graduated in economics in 2013. In addition to being a professional sports personality, Nassar is also a businessman and runs a company called Nassar Stables LLC. The company, based in San Diego, California, was founded in 2014.
