Jennifer Gates, eldest daughter of Bill Gates, the co-founder of Microsoft and one of the richest men in the world, is engaged to Egyptian equestrian show-jumper Nayel Nassar. 

Jennifer announced the engagement on Wednesday through an Instagram post. “I can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives learning, growing, laughing and loving together. Yes a million times over,” she wrote in the caption to the post.

Nassar, who grew up in Kuwait, where his parents run an architecture and interior design firm, may not be a billionaire in the league of Bill Gates, but the 26-year-old is a millionaire in his own right.

He is reported to have made his first million in 2013 long before he met Jennifer. According to the Federation Equestre Internationale, in the year 2013, Nassar rode his way to victory in the fourth-annual Zoetis $1 million Grand Prix at HITS Saugerties. 

His most recent wins include another prize of $216,000 which he and golden horse Lordan earned at the Longines FEI World Cup Jumping Wellington at the CP Palm Beach Masters CSI3*-W on February this year. Nayel also had a wealthy upbringing and attended Stanford University. He now runs his own training and sales business near San Diego, California.
