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