Melinda Gates turns ‘supermodel’ for daughter Phoebe on girls' trip to London
Melinda Gates and her 19-year-old daughter Phoebe Gates reportedly had a great girls' time as they vacationed together in London. Not just that, the 57-year-old general manager of Microsoft also struck numerous poses like a “supermodel” while her daughter clicked her.
Phoebe posted about the tour on her Instagram page while sharing pictures of her mother, The Daily Mail reported. As per reports, the young woman released a short clip on her now-disappeared Instagram Story that showed Melinda getting captured on camera in the British capital. Phoebe wrote at the start of the video, “Mom: let's take some photos. OK supermodel,” as a series of photographs began to appear.
One photo showed the ex-wife of Bill Gates standing happily in front of restaurant Sketch as she looked radiant in a pink ruffled collar and puffy sleeves top and white pants. Another picture was of her posing in front of a white architecture with her hand on her hip while the third one showed her placing her one leg in the air and leaning against the wall. “My momma sure knows best,” Phoebe added.
Melinda after marrying Bill in 1994 had three children. Phoebe is the youngest one, while the other two are 25-year-old Jennifer and Rory, 23. The teenager has been in the news lately. Earlier in July, she had to face trolls who made racist remarks on her social media post with her rumored Black boyfriend. Though it’s not confirmed yet if the Stanford University student and the unidentified man are in love, people did not stop from making vile comments like “Bill about to smash a vase against the wall,” “Now we know why Bill Gates been tellin' his kids they ain’t gon' inherit s**t,” and “Phoebe Gates has a black boyfriend, young brotha do not pull out … BE GREAT.”
Besides, in June even before Roe v Wade was overturned, Phoebe made a bold statement by posing in a bikini to promote “my body my choice.” She wrote in the caption, “I’m not shy about my body and/or telling you to keep your bans off of it. Every person deserves access to sexual and reproductive health care. Right now, the Supreme Court is prepared to end the constitutional right to abortion. Join me and millions of other women in our fight for this basic human right. @PlannedParenthood #BansOffOurBodies.”
And, when June 24’s historic ruling came out against abortion in the US, she voiced her opinon in a Vogue piece. Phoebe wrote, “The problem was never that we didn’t share enough compelling stories or appalling statistics. One more viral Gloria Steinem or RBG quote wouldn’t have saved Roe. This wasn’t about persuasion at all. It was about power. The wrong six people were in positions of authority. And they are why women lost the right to choose.”
“Public health—especially women’s health—requires learning about power, and how to wield it. It’s not just about what to do, but also about how to get it done. It’s been a terrible week for American women, and I know that just about everybody needs an emotional outlet right now—to fire off an angry tweet or post an abortion fund donation link. But the real test is whether we stay angry. Will we still be enraged next week? Next year? Over the next decade? Because that’s how long the power struggle for abortion rights may take,” she noted.
