Phoebe Adele Gates is a daughter of the American businessman, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and the richest man in the world, Bill Gates. She is just a little girl who likes art and ballet. However, Phoebe is far from being a “public figure” and her personal life is strictly reserved for her friends.
Phoebe Adele Gates Age
Phoebe Adele Gates was born on September 14, 2002. At the moment of writing this article, Phoebe is still 14 years old, although she will be 15 in a couple of days.
Phoebe Adele Gates Family
Phoebe Adele’s family is one of the most recognizable and best-known families in the world. At least her father is. There is no person on this planet that doesn’t know something about Bill Gates.
Phoebe Adele Gates is the third and the youngest child of Bill Gates and Melinda Gates. She has an older brother Rory John and an older sister Jennifer Katharine Gates. Her parents met when her mother worked in Microsoft and the two of them married at a private ceremony in Hawaii. Naturally, shortly after that, her mother left the company to take care of her family. Bill Gates was born in Washington and his father was a lawyer. Phoebe’s mother Melinda Gates was born in Dallas, Texas, on August 15, 1964. Melinda earned a degree in Computer Science and economics before she did MBA.
Phoebe’s grandfather from his father’s side is William H. Gates, and her grandmother is Mary Maxwell Gates. Her mother, Melinda Gates was born to Raymond Joseph French and Elaine Agnes Amerland.
Fun Fact – Bill Gates was the wealthiest man in the world from 1995 to 2007 and he lost the first place from the owner of Amazon. Of course, he regained that first place almost overnight.
The Gate’s House
The entire family lives on a property which is reported to be worth more than $120 million. It is not strange that Bill Gates has to annually pay one million dollars only for taxes. The house itself has a huge reception hall, large enough for more than 200 guests. Every picture on the wall is interactive and can be changed with a push of a button. The library in the house is a home to the 16th century Leonardo da Vinci which value was estimated to $30 million.
The house has a home theater that can accommodate over 20 guests, and it has a popcorn machine, which is a neat detail. When we are already in the field of recreation and entertainment, did you know that they also have a huge swimming pool with an underwater surround system, so they can listen to music while diving…
Phoebe Adele Gates Education
Phoebe is currently studying at Professional Children’s School, New York. She is interested in arts and ballet so she tries to attend art classes at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York City and The Julliard School, Lincoln Center for the performing arts (theater, music, dance, and writing).
Looks like she is a true example of how children have the same qualities as their parents. Same as her father she is trying to follow her passion and interests. She is studying all that and pursuing her dreams in spite that everyone thought that Gates have enough money not to do anything in the next 100 years and to spend the entire day every day. But they are smarter than that, and generally, when you look any of them you don’t have that feeling that they are the wealthiest people in the world. That deserves some respect.
It doesn’t matter how much money she is going to inherit (and she is going to) because Gates are smart parents. Why do we say that?
In one of the interviews, Phoebe’s mother Melinda said that they have a set of rules. Their children have to finish their schools and to advance in their professions. While they are kids, they will get everything accordingly to their age. For example, none of them had a mobile phone until they made 13 years of age. Even then their parents made some restrictions, even though there was a dose of dissatisfaction because all their friends have those luxurious gadgets and they don’t. That is a way to discipline your children and to make them respect everything they have. If they have to try their best in order to deserve the things they get, they will know how to respect that. Many “normal” parents make those stupid mistakes, and their children end up – spoiled.
