Lauren Sánchez proudly showed off her massive 20-carat engagement ring while on a lavish trip in the South of France with fiancé Jeff Bezos. The former news anchor and billionaire businessman were photographed Friday touring Beaulie, a seaside commune in the French Riviera.
The scenic town is the couple’s latest stop on their European getaway, as they’ve been sailing for weeks aboard Bezos’ $500 million yacht. Sánchez could be seen in photos resting her left hand on a boat as her giant sparkler — worth an estimated $2.5 million — shone in the sunlight.
The ex-entertainment reporter was dressed in a beautiful orange dress, while Bezos also looked stylish in a fitted T-shirt and light jeans. They appeared smitten as they held hands.
Page Six exclusively reported in May that the Amazon CEO popped the question after five years of dating. The proposal came amid the couple’s trip to the Cannes Film Festival.
Bezos, 59, and Sánchez, 53, hit the star-studded party circuit immediately after getting engaged to celebrate. An eyewitness previously told Page Six of the pair, “They were all over each other. I mean, they’re always affectionate, but they could not keep their hands off each other.”
Page Six exclusively revealed in January 2019 — shortly after Bezos announced his split from then-wife, MacKenzie Scott, via Twitter — that he had started dating Sánchez.
The former “Extra” and “Good Day LA” host, for her part, was previously married to Hollywood agent Patrick Whitesell. They share a daughter, Ella, 15, and son, Evan, 16.
She also has a 22-year-old son, Nikko, with former NFL player Tony Gonzalez.
Bezos’ divorce from Scott, 53, was finalized in April 2019, making the latter the third-richest woman in the world as a result. However, the philanthropist pledged half of her reported $38 billion fortune to charity.Meanwhile, since going public, Sánchez and her beau have not been shy about professing their love for one another.
“Happy birthday to the man of my dreams, who lights up my world with his laughter and kind heart,” the media personality wrote on Instagram for her lover’s birthday this year.
“You have shown me that no great love is not bravely fought for. Thank you for always being by my side and for being the most loving and supportive partner.”
