Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and news anchor Lauren Sanchez are "stronger than ever" after their romance went public in the wake of his divorce

Jeff Bezos and Lauren Sanchez aren’t bothered by the sudden onslaught of attention on their romance.

“The world is catching up to it, but it has had zero impact on their relationship,” a source tells PEOPLE of the couple in the new issue. “It’s actually made them stronger. They’re in constant contact.”

Bezos was revealed to be dating Sanchez after he announced his divorce from wife MacKenzie on Jan. 9 after 25 years of marriage.

The 55-year-old Amazon CEO, worth $137 billion, and the news anchor, 49, struck up a working relationship while collaborating on several projects together and “gradually” fell for each other, says the source. “It’s a very serious relationship.”
