Satya Nadella married Anupama Priyadarshini (now, Anupama Nadella) in 1992. Anupama’s father Mr. K. N. Venugopal was also an IAS officer like Satya’s dad (from the same batch). Both of them were also from the same cadre – Andhra Pradesh, and were close friends. Satya and Anupama studied in the same school (Anupama was one class junior to Satya) – Hyderabad Public School. The Government Quarters allotted to them were also adjacent in Hyderabad. Later, Satya and Anupama got admission to Manipal University of Technology. Needless to say, Satya and Anupama fell in love during their school and college days. They decided to get married when Satya joined Microsoft. The families, being quite close, had no problem with this marriage. Satya had told that Anupama is quite lucky for him, as he got a good job in Microsoft when the marriage plans were being discussed. Little did he realize at that time that Anupama is so lucky that he will one day become the CEO of the Microsoft Corp.
Satya and Anupama Nadella have three children – two daughters and one son. His family is living in Bellevue, Washington.
