Bill Gates’ daughter Phoebe Gates has high standards for her man. Not surprisingly, she has dated Robert Ross, who, despite his young age, boasts quite an impressive portfolio.
But who is Phoebe’s boyfriend? This Robert Ross biography explores everything you need to know about him.
Meet Robert Ross, daughter of Bill and Melinda Gates, boyfriend of Phoebe Gates
Shortly after Bill Gates’ romance with fellow techie and tennis fan Paula Hurd was announced in early 2023, his daughter Phoebe Gates also opened up about her love life. And the lucky man she was in love with was Robert Ross.
However, Phoebe didn’t talk about their relationship to flaunt her boyfriend to the world. Instead, the revelation came after she received a lot of criticism online for being in an interracial relationship. She said that she constantly deals with “misconceptions and conspiracy theories about my family and my relationship with my boyfriend.”
So she gave up on it. “It’s now 2023. I’m done getting reprimanded for being in an interracial relationship,” she added.
This also means that Robert and Melinda had already been together for a long time. The last time we saw Robert showing off his whistle on his IG was on his birthday (i.e. September 15) in 2022.
Now, speaking of Phoebe’s dad, Bill Gates romance, he and Paula started dating in 2021 and initially kept the information only between friends and family. But in January 2023 they were photographed together at the Australian Open watching the men’s singles final in Melbourne before a source revealed: “They are inseparable. They’ve been together for over a year, and she’s always been described as a ‘mystery woman,’ but to her inner circle it’s no secret that they’re in a romantic relationship.”
For those who don’t know, Bill Gates divorced Melinda French Gates in August 2021 for “some reason” he didn’t want to talk about. Back then, his only concern was to protect his children. In his annual end-of-year blog, he said, “I will always regret the pain I caused Melinda and our family.”
