Rupert Murdoch announced his engagement to model Jerry Hall on Monday — where else, than in one of his own newspapers.
The Australian-born media mogul’s impending nuptials to Mick Jagger‘s former girlfriend was listed in the “Births, Marriages and Deaths” section of The Times of London, which was founded in 1785 but bought in 1981 by a subsidiary of News UK, itself wholly owned by Murdoch’s News Corp.
See the announcement below.
“Mr. Rupert Murdoch and Miss Jerry Hall
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.”
Murdoch, 84, and Hall, 59, have been dating for three months and walked arm-in-arm down the red carpet at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night, and later attended the Fox party together.
This will be the News Corp. executive chairman’s fourth marriage (his most recent to Wendi Deng ended in 2013 and the couple have two children). It will be the first for Hall, as her unofficial ceremony to the Rolling Stones frontman was declared invalid after they split in 1999. They had been in a relationship since 1977 and have four children together.
