She Was Introduced to Her Husband by Her Daughter
At just 4 years old, Maya's daughter unknowingly played matchmaker by introducing her mom to her future stepdad. On Maya's first day of classes at Stanford Law School, Meena convinced fellow law student Tony West to play hide-and-seek with her on the campus's courtyard, and Maya and Tony quickly became close friends. However, it wasn't until a few years after graduation that they started dating. "It's a family joke that Meena knew we should be together long before we did," Maya told the Stanford Lawyer in a May 2010 interview.
Tony is a former associate attorney general of the US Senate and currently serves as the chief legal officer of Uber. He and Maya have been married for over 22 years.
