Lauren Sanchez has seemingly teased her engagement to longterm boyfriend, Jeff Bezos.

In a post to her Instagram Story on Thursday (25 May), the 53-year-old journalist hinted at her engagement to the Amazon founder, 59. “Cannes 2023. That was fun,” she captioned a picture of herself.

Bezos reportedly popped the question while the couple were in Cannes, France for the Cannes Film Festival.

On 22 May, Page Six reported that Bezos and Sanchez had gotten engaged. The alleged engagement, which a source confirmed to People, comes amid the couple’s vacation aboard Bezos’ new $500m yacht, Koru, which features a wooden figure that resembles Sanchez on the boat’s prow.

The couple first sparked engagement rumours when the former Good Day LA co-host was spotted wearing what appeared to be a large diamond engagement ring while aboard the yacht.

Both Bezos and Sanchez, who took their relationship public in January 2019, have been married previously, with the Amazon CEO and his ex-wife MacKenzie Scott divorcing in 2019 after 25 years of marriage. The couple share three sons and a daughter.

Sanchez, who was married to Patrick Whitesell, also has children of her own. She shares son Nikko with former NFL star Tony Gonzalez, and son Evan and daughter Eleanor with her ex-husband.

As of now, neither Bezos or Sanchez have confirmed the news of their engagement.

The Independent has contacted a representative for Bezos for comment.
