Jeff Bezos, Diller, 81, told Vogue that the couple’s chemistry is palpable. “They’re very in love with each other — they’re demonstrably in love,” he said. “She’s lit him up in the nicest ways. She’s a great stimulant.”
Sánchez and Bezos previously celebrated their engagement over the summer with a glamorous party aboard the Amazon founder’s superyacht, Koru, on Italy’s Amalfi Coast. They were joined by Leonardo DiCaprio, Bill Gates and Queen Rania of Jordan, among other VIP guests.
In the Vogue interview, Sánchez recalled the moment when Bezos surprised her by popping the question. “When he opened the box, I think I blacked out a bit,” she admitted, before revealing that the mogul had hidden the ring under her pillow and she discovered it as she was getting into bed that night.
Jeff Bezos, As for the wedding, the news anchor said the pair is taking their time with the planning. “We’re still thinking about the wedding, what it’s going to be. Is it going to be big? Is it going to be overseas? We don’t know yet. We’ve only been engaged five months!” she said.
However, one important detail that Sánchez has put a lot of thought into is her wedding-day wardrobe. She said she already has a short list of potential designers for her dress — Christian Dior, Dolce & Gabbana and Valentino.
Jeff Bezos, She also confirmed to the magazine that she will be taking the tech titan’s name when they officially tie the knot. “I am looking forward to being Mrs. Bezos,” she declared.
Elsewhere in the interview, Bezos opened up about some of the qualities he most admires in his future wife. “Lauren has amazing intuition, almost witchy powers in that regard,” he said. “She sees things that other people don’t see. She’s really very sensitive to other people and what they’re thinking.”
“She’s always encouraging me: ‘Call your kids. Call your dad. Call your mom.’ And she’s also just a very good role model. She keeps in touch with people. I’ve never seen her put makeup on without calling somebody. Usually her sister.”
Jeff Bezos, Bezos also confessed that he intends to stay very hands-off with the wedding details. “Oh, God, no. Do I look that dumb?” he joked of helping Sánchez with the planning.
