After a whirlwind four-month romance, media mogul Rupert Murdoch and model Jerry Hall have announced their engagement – in one of Rupert’s newspapers, of course.
The 84-year-old executive chairman of global media giant News Corporation proposed to Jerry, 59, during a trip to Los Angeles this week for the 73rd Golden Globes.
The couple, who have been dating since October 2015, were introduced by Rupert’s sister and their relationship is his first since his 2013 split with his wife of 14 years, Wendi Deng.
Jerry and Rupert have 10 children between them from prior marriages.

Naturally, Rupert announced the big news in one of his many newspapers. He posted the announcement above in the Births, Marriages and Deaths section of London’s The Times.
The announcement reads: ‘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.’Rupert and Jerry made their first public appearance together at the Rugby World Cup final in London in October, 2015.
