[SYDNEY] News Corp Chairman Rupert Murdoch announced his engagement to former supermodel Jerry Hall in an advertisement published in the Times newspaper.
The couple are “delighted to announce their engagement,” said the announcement in the News Corp-owned newspaper’s “forthcoming marriages” column.
The couple have been dating for about four months and made their relationship public in October, the Times said.
“They have loved these past months together, are thrilled to be getting married and excited about their future,” the newspaper cited a spokesman for the Murdoch family as saying.
Mr Murdoch, 84, and Ms Hall, 59, got engaged over the weekend in Los Angeles where they attended the Golden Globes awards gala, the Times said. A call outside office hours to Steven Rubenstein, a spokesman with Rubenstein Associates Inc in New York that represents News Corp, went unanswered.
