Mark Zuckerberg: Engaged to Priscilla Chan?

by at . Comments

Is Mark Zuckerberg engaged to girlfriend Priscilla Chan? That's the rumor going around - a rumor traced to a comment by none other than Bill Gates.

The Microsoft founder may have just used the wrong word in reference to his fellow computer entrepreneur, but he definitely called her his "fiancee."

In an interview with the Daily Mail (UK), Gates discussed the philanthropic efforts of Zuckerberg, who recently reached out to Gates and his foundation.

Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan

Like Gates, Zuckerberg has pledged to give away most of his fortune.

"I didn't say to Mark, 'Give me all your money!' He was predisposed to do it and he came to me seeking advice. His fiancée Priscilla thought about education and he gave money to Newark, New Jersey," Gates said.

The head of the Gates Foundation said, "We did a co-grant so that some of our people who had some expertise in that field could help him out."

It could have been nothing more than a slip of the tongue, saying fiancee instead of girlfriend, but Zuckerberg has been dating Chan since 2003.

The social networking guru also made headlines when he dropped $7 million on a home Palo Alto, Calif., and last month the couple moved in.

Earlier this year they adopted a puppy named Beast and looked every bit the happy young family when they posed for photos with the dog.

The mystery deepens! But one thing's for sure. Engaged or not, all signs point to them being "in a relationship" and a happy one at that.

UPDATE, 5/19/12: Engaged or not the two just got married!
