World's richest man Bill Gates and his wife Meliinda Gates have three children together. They are Jennifer, 20, Rory, 17, and Phoebe, 14.

According to Dailymail Bill Gates stated that  his three children understand why he has pledged to leave his £70billion fortune to charity when he dies.

In a revealing insight into his private life, the Microsoft founder, 60, said his children are 'proud' of his decision to dedicate his money to helping the world's poorest.

Gates said that instead of billion-dollar trust funds, his two daughters and son will be given a 'great education' to help kick-start their own careers. 

But the business mogul did say there would still be a financial safety net in place, adding: 'They are never going to be poorly off'.

Speaking on This Morning, Gates said: 'Our kids will receive a great education and some money so they are never going to be poorly off but they'll go out and have their own career. 
Presently his kids are in school while Jennifer is in her second year at prestigious Stanford University, California, where her father donated £5million to the construction of a computer science building in his name.

 She is also an accomplished equestrian, riding in national competitions.
Rory and Phoebe are believed to at school and live at home with their parents outside Seattle, Washington.

Gates ha always maintained his fortune will  go to their charity while the kids will newver be poor. The Bill And Melinda Gates Foundation  funds health and education projects around the world.
