Quick Facts About Lucinda Southworth
Lucinda Southworth is a research scientist and also the sister of mainstream actress and model, Carrie Southworth. It is not only because her husband, Larry Page is rich that she has been in the limelight, it is also because she is doing really well in her field.
There is a lot of pressure that comes with being the wife of one of the richest persons in the world, but she has coped well with it so far. So, let’s look at some secrets about Lucinda Southworth you may not know about.
10 Secrets About Lucinda Southworth
#1. Lucinda Southworth is a Fitness Freak.
While many may see the luxury they are in as a means to just live as life comes at them, some other people choose not to allow that to get into their heads, which ultimately makes them look like potatoes. For Lucinda, she loves to look fit and is kinda obsessed with the gym, which is a good thing if we are being honest.
#2. She Barely Engages her Followers on Social Media
It is true that she has followers in their millions on social media, but Lucinda doesn’t post regularly or try to engage her followers. We can attribute this to perhaps her anti-social skills. Perhaps, maybe it is not anti-social skills, maybe it is just her trying to maintain her privacy.
Over the years, we have seen celebrities delete their social media accounts over bullying and abuse from people online. While some have social media accounts, they really do not make use of the accounts.
#3. Larry Page and Lucinda Southworth Trekked to Page’s Wedding
You read that right! You would imagine how a billionaire would walk all the way down to a wedding ceremony of a loved one. Of course, the distance isn’t all that, but still, it doesn’t take away the fact they walked with their feet to the wedding ceremony of Page’s brother.
You expect the people of Motovun (the street on which they walked to the wedding) to stare in wonder.
#4. She donated $15 million to Help Fight Ebola Virus Epidemic in West Africa
This act of philanthropy is not talked about enough. Perhaps, it is because Southworth prefers to stay on the low without making too much fuss about a donation. Southworth over the years through her foundation has spent over $15 million fighting the dangerous Ebola virus in West Africa.
It is also how consistent she has been with the contribution in helping Africa fight the deadly virus. We think this is a laudable achievement.
#5. Her Master’s Degree Focused on Something Not Common
Lucinda Southworth went further in her career to study the data analysis of Eukaryotic organisms, a relatively little explored field. She is currently an authority in that field. She later completed her Ph.D. in biomedical informatics from Standford University, the same university Larry Page finished from.
#6 Her Father Once Worked At World Bank
Lucinda is quite lucky that her parents and grandparents are academics who have a long history of studying. Her Father, Dr. Van Roy South-Worth worked at the World Bank after obtaining his Ph.D. Her mother, on the other hand, Dr. Cathy McLain is an educational psychologist. She has also founded two NGOs.
#7. Larry Page and Lucinda Southworth Started dating in 2006.
How they met is not everywhere on social media even if you tried to Google. No pun intended. It was such a perfect wedding that the calibre of attendees showed that the duo really was a power couple.
Attendees like Donald Trump, Oprah Winfrey graced the occasion. They got married on an island owned by another billionaire in Sir Richard Branson, the founder of Virgin Island. Branson also stood in as the best man for Page.
#8. She Works Behind the Scene for Her Mother Charitable foundation.
It is true that being the wife of one of the richest men in the world, she may recline, but she hasn’t and has secretly given in millions to foundations and also her mother’s foundation.
#9. Lucinda Southworth and Larry Page have a combined net worth of $103.6 billion.
Having a business empire such as The Alphabet Inc, only testifies how much wealth the couple is in. Being the co-founder of Google is a big deal, considering the billions of dollars the company churns in. Lucinda on the other hand has a charity she runs. All of these ventures just emphasise the billions of dollars they have in net worth.
#10. She has two kids who are not exposed to the media.
Larry Page and Lucinda Southworth have two children. The first child was born in 2009. The second one was born in 2011. The interesting thing about this is, nobody knows the names of the kids. As it stands, the media does not even know the gender of the second child.
It looks like the couple has decided not to expose the kids to the media. Smart move if you ask us.
Lucinda Southworth is obviously not overshadowed by her husband’s success as she is also engaged in charitable works while also working as a research expert.
