“Lauren is the most generous, kindest-hearted person you will ever meet. So she’s an inspiration in that way,” Jeff told the outlet. “She never misses a birthday. The network of people to whom she gives birthday gifts is huge. And that’s just a small example.”
“Was really great teammatesand we also have a lot of fun together and we love each other… We always look at each other and we are a team,” Lauren added before Jeff admitted, “It was easy” because they “bring the energy.” mutual respect” and “mutual respect”, which makes “working together fun”.
They continued to talk about their daily lives together and even joked that they can be “boring” sometimes. “We can be a little boring,” Lauren said with a laugh. “I would say normal. We have dinner with the kids. It’s always fun and a great conversation. There were seven people between us, so there was a lot of discussion. And then we watched a movie… by the committee. It took a long time to find that movie.”
“We probably spend more time choosing movies than necessary,” Jeff added before continuing to talk about his wealth. As a billionaire, he said he plans to give away most of his money during his lifetime. “BILLIONthe hard part for him was figuring out how to do it in a leveraged way,” he said. “It wasn’t easy.

It’s really hard.”
Jeff and Lauren’s interview comes after they began their romance in early 2019. Ever since their relationship was confirmed, they haven’t been shy about going on PDA-filled outings together, as one in Rome, Italy last month. Although their relationship first caused some controversy because they both are married with others when their relationship went public, they tried to ignore criticism as they divorced their spouses and started a future together.
