Bill and Melinda Gates become first-time grandparents, share photo with their granddaughter

There’s few things in life as precious as meeting a grandchild for the first time.

Recently, Bill and Melinda Gates became first-time grandparents, and the two shared the special moment they got to meet the little bundle of joy.

On Thursday, Melinda shared a photo of herself holding her granddaughter, born to daughter Jennifer Gates and husband Nayel Nassar.

“There is nothing quite like holding your first grandchild 🥰,” Melinda wrote of the heartwarming photo she shared on Instagram. “It seems like just yesterday I was holding Jenn at this age.”


“Now she has a baby of her own—and I am bursting with pride watching her and Nayel step into their new role as parents,” Melinda added.

Bill also shared his own snap with his granddaughter.

“I can’t wait to watch you discover the world,” he wrote under a photo of him touching the infant’s little fingers.

Jennifer and Nayel announced the birth of their daughter on March 4 with a joint Instagram post writing, “sending love from our healthy little family 💓🙏🥰”

The couple married in October 2021 after four years of dating.

Congratulations to Bill and Melinda! There’s nothing more exciting than becoming a grandparent for the first time. I hope you’ll get to spoil the little girl rotten.

Please share and wish the family well.
