Congratulations are in order for Jeff Bezos and girlfriend Lauren Sanchez, who are reportedly engaged.

The couple, whose engagement was confirmed by People, first took their relationship public back in January of 2019. 

Their romance came after the Amazon founder, 59, split from novelist and philanthropist MacKenzie Scott. They were married for 25 years and share four children together.

At the time, Lauren, 53, was also in the midst of a divorce after 13 years of marriage to Patrick Whitesell. She also has two children from a previous relationship with former NFL star Tony Gonzalez.

The former entertainment reporter and news anchor has known her soon-to-be husband for several years, and the two had been photographed together at different entertainment-related events as far back as 2016.

Lauren was formerly a co-host on Fox's Good Day LA from 2011 to 2017, and she also specializes in aerial filming. She earned her helicopter pilot's license in 2016 and subsequently created Black Ops Aviation, an aerial film and production company. According to The Hollywood Reporter, served as a consultant on Christopher Nolan's 2017 war film Dunkirk. "I had my job, I had a career, and then I found a calling," she told the outlet.

Speaking of their joint philanthropic efforts in an interview with CNN, Jeff said: "It's not easy. Building Amazon was not easy. It took a lot of hard work, a bunch of very smart teammates, hard-working teammates, and I'm finding – and I think Lauren is finding the same thing – that charity, philanthropy, is very similar," with Lauren noting that they make "really great teammates."

Lauren recently gushed about Jeff when celebrating his 59th birthday in January with a lengthy tribute on Instagram, where she wrote: "Happy birthday to the man of my dreams, who lights up my world with his laughter and kind heart. You have shown me that no great love is not bravely fought for."

She added: "Thank you for always being by my side and for being the most loving and supportive partner. I am so grateful for the memories we have made and the adventures yet to come.

"Here's to many more birthdays filled with love and laughter," she then wrote, concluding in Spanish with: "Te amo con todo mi corazón," meaning, "I love you with all my heart."
