Jerry Hall engaged to Rupert Murdoch

Fashion icon Jerry Hall is getting married to Australian billionaire Rupert Murdoch.

After dating for four months, the pair announced its engagement on Monday (11Jan16) in the Births, Marriages and Deaths section of UK newspaper The Times.

"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," the classified ad reads.

The 84-year-old business tycoon, who has an estimated net worth of nearly $13 billion (£9 billion), owns The Times, as the publication falls under the umbrella of his global mass media company News Corp.

Retired supermodel Hall, 59, reportedly began dating the billionaire businessman in September (15) and the pair went public with their relationship at the Rugby World Cup final in London on Halloween (31Oct15).

Murdoch's romance with Hall is believed to be the first serious relationship the magnate has had since he split from his third wife Wendi Deng in 2013.

"He is very fond of her," an insider previously confirmed to the Mail on Sunday. "There is no question that they are a couple."

Hall famously split from Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger in 1999, after it was revealed he had fathered a lovechild with Brazilian model Luciana Morad. Hall, who first started dating Jagger in 1977, shares four children with the rock star.
