One of the world’s biggest media moguls, Rupert Murdoch, has put a ring on it and announced his engagement to former supermodel and all-round fox, Jerry Hall.
The 84-year-old has been involved with his younger woman, 59, for just a short four months, with their engagement becoming official after appearing in the births, marriages and deaths section of The Times in London.
The notice appeared in the Tuesday 12 January edition of the News Corporation-owned newspaper, of which Murdoch is the executive chairman. The newspaper also ran a news story online, because of course you can never have too much Murdoch news.
The brief notice read:
“Mr Rupert Murdoch, father of Prudence, Elisabeth, Lachlan, James, Grace and Chloe Murdoch, and Miss Jerry Hall, mother of Elizabeth, James, Georgia and Gabriel Jagger, are delighted to announce their engagement.”
According to the Guardian Australia, Murdoch could have paid close to £300 (a bit over AU$600) for the classified, though as the executive chairman of News Corporation, it’s probably safe to assume that he didn’t fork out the full price.
He, or his representative, did shell out extra for a black border, however.
This will be Murdoch’s fourth marriage, and Hall’s second, or first if there’s any truth to the claims her Hindu ceremony in Bali to Mick Jagger back in the 90s was invalid.
Murdoch has been married to former flight attendant Patricia Booker, journalist Anna Torv and most recently Wendi Deng, whom he divorced in 2013 after 14 years of marriage.
The Times quoted a spokesman for the Murdoch family as saying, “They have loved these past months together, are thrilled to be getting married and excited about their future”.
