Jennifer Gates, the daughter of Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates and Ursuline grad Melinda French Gates, just got engaged. Jennifer made the announcement on Instagram. The lucky guy? Nayel Nassar, an Egyptian show jumper. Here’s what the 23-year-old Stanford graduate said on Insta: “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,” she wrote with a ring emoji. “I can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives learning, growing, laughing and loving together. Yes a million times over. AHHH!!!” Here’s what Nassar said on his Instagram:  “SHE SAID YES!! 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!” Mom Melinda Gates wrote, “So thrilled for you and @mayelnassar!”
