Jennifer Gates, the daughter of Microsoft founder Bill Gates is now engaged to Nayel Nassar. The couple made the announcement on Thursday after what looked like a surprise proposal on a skiing trip, according to their Instagram posts.

Nassar, 28, is an Egyptian equestrian showjumper and also reportedly a millionaire, winning several prizes as a showjumper. In 2013, Nassar took home the Zoetis $1 million Grand Prix at the HITS Saugerties in New York. The couple had been dating just over four years, the Daily Mail reported.

Nassar was raised in Kuwait and also studied at Stanford University, where he obtained a degree in management and economics, the news outlet said. After the proposal to Jennifer, he posted to his Instagram account, “SHE SAID YES!!”

 

 

He continued in his post, “'I'm feeling like the luckiest (and happiest) man in the world right about now. Jenn, you are everything I could have possibly imagined..and so much more. I can't wait to keep growing together through this journey called life, and I simply can't imagine mine without you anymore. Love you more than you can possibly imagine, and thank you for making every single day feel like a dream to me. Here's to forever!”

Jennifer replied to the post by saying, “Yep crying again its fine life is perfect rn you're everything to me.”

Jennifer, who has a biology degree from Stanford and is also reportedly medical student as well as an equestrian, showed off her new engagement ring against a snowy backdrop with a post on Instagram that read, “Nayel Nassar, you are one of a kind. Absolutely swept me off my feet this past weekend, surprising me in the most meaningful location over one of our many shared passions. I can't wait to spend the rest of our lives learning, growing, laughing and loving together. Yes a million times over. AHHH!!!”
