In an Instagram picture, she posed with her husband, Bill Gates, and their three children, saying that they are at the very top of her list.
She was also grateful for how the year so far has turned out for her family.
It should be noted that Melinda is a businesswoman, co-founder of Gates Foundation and an advocate for women.
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Gates officially surpassed Amazon Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Jeff Bezos as world's richest person on earth with a net worth of $110 billion.
The Amazon founder ended Gates' 24-year run as the richest man in 2018 with a net worth of $160 billion.
However, the Microsoft co-founder regained the lead on Friday, November 15, after Microsoft stock went up nearly 48% in 2019, helping boost the value of his stake in the tech giant.
The rest of his wealth is derived from share sales and investments made over the years by his family office, Cascade. Gates had briefly topped Bezos as the world's richest man in October 2019, after Amazon's lacklustre Q3 results resulted in Bezos losing nearly $7 billion in stock value.
The index, which tracks the wealth of the richest 500 people, is updated each trading day after U.S. markets close.
Europe’s richest person, Bernard Arnault, is third with $102.7 billion. Gates debuted on Forbes' first-ever billionaire list in 1987 with a net worth of $1.25 billion.
Bezos first joined The Forbes 400 list of richest Americans in 1998, one year after Amazon went public, with a net worth of $1.6 billion.
