63-year-old Du Pre shares three children with his ex-wife, Gina.

The ‘Prodigal Father’ author’s sons are Kasey and Jonny, who graduated from Brigham Young University (BYU), and daughter Jessie, who graduated from the University of Utah.

Melinda and Bill Gates, while finalising their divorce via a joint statement in 2021, said: “After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made the decision to end our marriage.”

The former couple founded the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation while they were together and built it into one of the largest charitable organisations in the world.

Melinda later admitted that her ex’s association with late convicted sex offender, Jeffrey Epstein, played a role in her decision to leave Gates.

“I did not like that he had meetings with Jeffrey Epstein, no. I made that clear to him. He was abhorrent. He was evil personified. My heart breaks for these women,” the former computer scientist had disclosed.
