Bill Gates had the word speculating about whether Facebook’s Chief Executive Officer has already popped the question to his girlfriend Priscilla Chan (pictured). Apparently, that’s not the case.

During an interview with the U.K. Daily Mail‘s Caroline Graham the billionaire founder of Microsoft referred to Chan as Mark Zuckerberg’s fiancee. Numerous media outlets have subsequently checked in with Facebook’s communications team and learned that the two are not engaged.

An engagement is certainly believeable given that Zuckerberg recently bought a $7 million home. And the two have been a couple since freshman year in college, well before Facebook was conceived.

However, both Chan and Zuckerberg’s Facebook profiles say they are in a relationship with one another, not engaged.

Until the last 12 months neither of the two had anything listed as a relationship status. That changed right around when the couple bought a puppy and created a page on the social network for the pooch named Beast.

Readers, what do you think about what Gates said to the Daly Mail?
