Bill Gates’ Daughter, Jennifer Katharine Gates, Has a Fiancé Who Might Be Richer Than Her
Bill Gates and Melinda Gates are all over the news due to the news of their divorce — but we can’t forget about their kids. Melinda and Bill Gates’ daughter, Jennifer Katharine Gates, is an accomplished equestrian, and she’s currently going to med school. Not only that, but she’s engaged. And it seems her fiancé is quite wealthy. Here’s what we know about Jennifer Katharine Gates’ net worth compared to her fiancé’s.
Is Bill Gates’ daughter engaged? Jennifer Katharine Gates has a wedding ahead
Bill Gates’ daughter, Jennifer Katharine Gates, is already making a name for herself. As the oldest of Melinda and Bill’s kids, she’s set an example as an excellent equestrian and medical school scholar. And she’s talked about what it was like growing up with brilliant parents who hoped to do good in the world.
“As a young kid, they always talked to me like I was an adult and weren’t willing to shy around difficult conversations,” Jennifer told Sidelines Magazine.
The 25-year-old has plenty to look forward to in the future as well. She’s engaged to Nayel Nassar, a fellow equestrian from Chicago who spent much of his life in Kuwait, People reports. The two seemed to bond over their love of the sport, and they also both attended Stanford University. Nassar popped the question in January 2020, and Jennifer, of course, said yes.
What is Jennifer Katharine Gates’ net worth?
There’s no secret Bill and Melinda Gates are ultra-rich. Melinda has a reported net worth of around $70 billion, while Bill’s hits $124 billion thanks to his contributions to Microsoft. But what about Jennifer?
So far, Jennifer is still in school, so she hasn’t accrued nearly as much as her billionaire parents. But it seems she still has an impressive net worth many would love to see. Her net worth currently stands around $20 million.
While many might suspect Melinda and Bill Gates’ daughters and son will inherit all of their parents’ money someday, that’s not the case. The couple said they’ll give each of their kids $10 million, and they’ll give the rest of the money to charity. They want to ensure they instill hardworking values in their children so they can go and make a difference in the world.
“We want to strike a balance where they have the freedom to do anything but not a lot of money showered on them so they could go out and do nothing,” Bill explained.
How much is Nayel Nassar worth?
While Jennifer Katharine Gates has a lot of money, it seems Nassar’s net worth is even more. People notes Nassar had a “wealthy upbringing,” as his Egyptian parents have an architecture and design firm in Kuwait. In 2009, they relocated to the U.S. And according to The Daily Biography, Nassar’s net worth is somewhere between $20 million and $100 million, though the exact amount is unknown. It’s quite possible the young equestrian currently has a higher personal net worth than Jennifer.
It doesn’t seem to be about the money for these two, though. They’ve been together since late 2016 or early 2017, and they share their love of horses. Bill Gates’ daughter even traveled to Kuwait with Nassar in 2017.
We can’t wait to hear more about Jennifer’s upcoming wedding. For now, we’ll continue to see plenty of social media photos of the happy couple!
