A Look Inside the Inspiring Life of Jeff Bezos and Lauren Sánchez
Editor’s note: the piece originally ran in January 2023. We are republishing it today in honor of the news that Bezos and Sánchez are engaged.
While former Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos may not have a say in how fast we receive our Prime shipments, his private life has been an object of much fascination to the public. Many remember his scandal over sexts with his girlfriend, his divorce, and, of course, his infamous space flight in a phallic rocket. But his partner, Lauren Sánchez, is a figure who has flown under the radar for many.
However, in a recent WSJ Magazine interview with Sánchez, journalist Derek Blasberg discovered the inspiring story of this power couple.
Initially, the couple’s wealth and extravagant lifestyle had caused critics to view them as another “disgustingly wealthy couple” dabbling in charitable giving. But the subhead’s description of Bezos and Sánchez as “one of the most philanthropic couples in the world” piqued readers’ interests.
The couple’s love story began under difficult circumstances, with both still legally married to their respective spouses when news of their romance leaked. But the pair has gone on to exhibit a smooth and loving partnership. They have traveled around the world, posing together for paparazzi in front of iconic landmarks. They also share a passion for reading and writing, with Bezos helping Sánchez with her book. The two are often seen working out and flying planes together.
Bezos and Sánchez share a historic Beverly Hills home built by Hollywood founding father Jack Warner that cost $165 million. They own other properties across the US and frequently enjoy meals with their blended family of seven children.
As it turns out, this couple is inspiring for more than just their wealth and generosity. They have managed to build a strong and loving relationship against what was probably incredible odds.
While we may not know what this power couple has in store for the future, we can say that the two certainly seem very happy together.
So the next time you receive your Prime shipment, think about the inspiring couple behind the company’s success.
