Five years, $500 million, and a divorce later, Amazon boss Jeff Bezos has finally popped the question to his Emmy-winning journalist girlfriend aboard Koru. The centibillionaire sealed the deal with longtime girlfriend, Lauren Sanchez while cruising on his half-a-billion-dollar worth schooner. The wealthy couple was spotted making the most of the Coast of Cannes, but no one could guess Bezos had such a special surprise planned.

Not only was the proposal’s location truly exceptional (Koru is the second largest sailing yacht worldwide), but the very evident rock (believed to be 20 carats) dazzling on Sanchez’s ring finger confirmed her answer. Jeff Bezos embarked on an enjoyable Mediterranean odyssey but turned the inaugural voyage of the Koru superyacht into a truly memorable one.
