Phoebe Adele Gates is the youngest daughter of Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates and ex-wife Melinda Gates. The youngest of three children, Phoebe was born in 2002 and grew up in Seattle.

Growing up as the daughter of one of the world’s wealthiest and most philanthropic couples, she has had a unique experience throughout her childhood. She reportedly has a net worth of $10 million.

Net Worth:$20 MILLION
Source of wealth:Bill and Melinda Gates


Bill Gates, who signed the Giving Pledge in 2010, is set to give away his estimated $122 billion net worth before his death.

He had set aside a $10 million inheritance for each of his children upon his death, stating, “It’s not a favor to kids to have them have huge sums of wealth. It distorts anything they might do in creating their own path.”

However, Melinda received $5.7 billion publicly in traded company stocks from the divorce and is planning to increase the inheritance her children will receive. 


Phoebe has stayed out of the spotlight, despite being the daughter of one of the most famous couples in the world. She attended her father’s alma mater, Seattle’s Lakeside High School.

She currently lives in her parent’s $125 million lakefront eco-mansion, Xanadu 2.0. which overlooks Lake Washington. The house features an artificial beach, a trampoline room, and a stream with real-life fish.

Although the mansion is filled to the brim with all of these amazing features, Phoebe was raised modestly by her parents. But largely by her mother, Melinda, as her father spent much of his time operating Microsoft.

The couple instilled good values in their three children, insisting they do housework, including the Gates family tradition: washing dishes every night. 

Like her brother, Rory Gates, Phoebe is interested in the arts. She is an aspiring ballerina and enrolled at the Professional Children’s School in New York. She has also studied ballet at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and Julliard School. Phoebe shares reading as a hobby with her father.


Phoebe shares a close bond with her sister, Jennifer Gates. Jennifer is very active on social media and often shares a post about her sister. Jennifer recently married professional equestrian Nayel Nassar. The pair said “I do” during a lavish wedding ceremony in October 2021.

Phoebe started dating Chaz Flynn, a fellow Lakeside School alum, in 2019. The young couple travel often, and she shares elements of their relationship online. Phoebe has traveled to many places throughout the world, including Kenya, Peru, and Christmas in Cabo.

Her parents approve of her boyfriend. Bill Gates’s first public appearance after his divorce was a visit to the restaurant Nobu with his youngest daughter and her boyfriend. 

Bill and Melinda, who married in 1994, divorced in 2021 in one of the most publicized divorces in the world. Their separation had much to do with their youngest child graduating high school at 18.

The Business Insider said, “It’s absolutely because their youngest child is graduating from high school, and the idea was that they stayed together through that.”
