Jennifer, the eldest daughter of Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft and one of the richest people in the world, has married his Egyptian Nayel Nassar.
Al-Arabiya reports that the couple tied the knot first in a secret Muslim ceremony and then in a public ceremony in New York on October 16.
Rural roads were closed during the ceremony, which cost $2 million.
The event was held at Jennifer’s Westchester Horse Farm and was attended by hundreds of guests.
This is where the first wedding ceremony was performed in private and then the feast was held.
Reports of a love affair between Bill Gates’ daughter and an Egyptian Muslim youth surfaced in 2017 when it was rumored that the two would soon be married.
However, their marriage was not possible due to Jennifer Gates’ master’s degree, but the two remained very close during this period and were seen romancing each other.
The two were engaged in January 2020 and this was confirmed through Instagram posts.
Jennifer Gates shared a romantic photo with her fiance in a snow-covered area and wrote that she would accept Nile Nasr’s offer a million times and that she was the best person and first choice for her.
Nayel Nassar also shared photos taken during the engagement with Jennifer Gates in which Bill Gates’ daughter can be seen with the ring.
Bill Gates and Melinda French Gates divorced in August 2021, 27 years after their marriage was approved by a judge.
