Smiling Bill Gates and ex Melinda share their first photo with baby granddaughter

A smiling Bill Gates and his ex-wife Melinda have shared the first photos of their baby granddaughter – a month after she was born.

Bill posted a photograph at the same time, captioned: 'I can't wait to watch you discover the world'

Gates – who split from his ex-wife in 2021 after 27 years of marriage – wrote ‘I can’t wait to watch you discover the world’ next to a shot of him cradling the newborn who was wearing a pink babygrow.

Separately, Melinda also uploaded a photo of her holding the baby as she said ‘there is nothing like holding your first grandchild.’

Daughter Jennifer first announced the birth of her child – whom she shares with her equestrian husband Nayel Nassar – a month ago today via an Instagram shot of the baby’s feet.

But they have since remained tight-lipped about the girl with no shots of her uploaded to any of their social media profiles until today.

The baby’s face was not visible in any of the photos but they do show the baby’s mop of black hair.

Wearing a bright orange jumper, Melinda appeared to still be wearing a ring on her wedding finger in the shot.

She wrote: ‘It seems like just yesterday I was holding Jenn at this age. Now she has a baby of her own—and I am bursting with pride watching her and Nayel step into their new role as parents.’

The family has remained tight-lipped about the birth of the little girl. On March 6 Jennifer confirmed she had given birth with an Instagram shot of the newborn's feet
