50-year-old Facebook Chief Operating Officer, Sheryl Sandberg is now engaged to 46-year-old Tom Bernthal nearly 5 years after she lost her husband.
Bernthal popped the question on February 1 as the couple went on a mountain hike to recreate their first date.
Sandberg took to Facebook and Instagram hours ago to share the good news.
“Engaged!!! @tom_bernthal, you are my everything. I could not love you more,” she captioned a black and white photo of her and Bernthal looking into each other’s eyes.
The engagement ring Bernthal presented to Sandberg has five diamonds underneath the setting to represent each of their five children. Sandberg has two children from her previous marriage, and Bernthal has three. Bernthal is divorced, according to People.
The pair have been dating since last spring after they were introduced to each other by the brother of Sandberg’s late husband.
Sandberg’s late husband, David Goldberg, died in 2015 after collapsing while on vacation with his family in Mexico. Goldberg, the CEO of SurveyMonkey at the time, fell while using a treadmill. An autopsy later revealed a coronary arrhythmia was the cause of his death.
Sheryl Sanberg is an American technology executive, author, and billionaire. She is also the chief operating officer of Facebook and founder of LeanIn.Org.
Before dating Bernthal, she dated Bobby Kotick, CEO of Blizzard, but they split after three years.
Bernthal, 46, is the founder and CEO of Kelton Global, a strategic consulting firm based in Los Angeles. He is also the brother of actor Jon Bernthal, who plays the anti-hero on Netflix’s “The Punisher,”
