In 2022, the couple spoke to CNN at their Washington home for their first joint interview in which they discussed their philanthropic work to strategically donate Bezos’ vast wealth to a variety of causes.

When it comes to their charitable efforts, Sanchez told CNN they’re “really great teammates,” adding with a laugh that they can also be “a bit boring.”

Bezos went on to describe the Emmy-winning journalist as “the most generous and warm-hearted person you’d ever meet,” calling her “an inspiration.”

The billionaire is also the founder of the space company Blue Origin, and was aboard a 2021 flight into space and back on Blue Origin’s New Shepard rocket.

Sanchez, who is also a former helicopter pilot, told CNN that she, too, plans to head into space in the next few years, saying she will be accompanied by “a great group of women.”

Bezos was married for 25 years to MacKenzie Scott, with whom he shares four children. Sanchez has three children from previous relationships, and she was married to Hollywood agent Patrick Whitesell for 13 years before finalizing their divorce from her in 2019.
