Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft, has remarried Paula Hurd, widow of Mark Hurd, CEO of software company Oracle and former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, who died in 2019.
Gates, 67, and Hurd, 60, were photographed sitting side by side during the Men’s Singles Final at the Australian Open last month.
The news comes nearly two years after Gates and his ex-wife Melinda French Gates announced their divorce after 27 years of marriage. In August 2021, their divorce was finalized.
“It’s widely known that Bill Gates and Paula Hurd are dating, but she hasn’t met his kids yet,” according a source who spoke to the DailyMail..
Gates and Melinda Gates, both 58, have three children: Jennifer, 26, Phoebe, 20, and Rory, 23. Jennifer is expecting her first child with husband Nayel Nassar and is “due any day,” according to the source.
Hurd and her late husband were married for nearly 30 years until his death in October 2019. They have two daughters, Kathryn and Kelly. He was 62.
The relationship news comes just days after Gates was asked if he hoped to find love again during an interview.
“Sure, I’m not a robot,” the billionaire said during an interview with the BBC.
