Egyptian horse rider Nayel Nassar is set to marry Jennifer Gates, the daughter of philanthropists Bill and Melinda Gates.
They announced their engagement on her Instagram account.
Gates and Nassar, who have been dating since 2017, are both riders of the Paris Panthers.
‘‘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,” Gates posted.
‘‘I can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives learning, growing, laughing and loving together. Yes a million times over.” She added.
The 24-year-old Gates, who is studying to be a medical doctor, has previously praised her parents and Nassar for supporting her passion for this port.
“It’s really special,” she said “Horses are just one part of our life, but we love the sport.
“He’s a professional, and I do this as an amateur. So, to be able to share our love and passion for horses with each other is just incredible.”
