RUPERT Murdoch and girlfriend Jerry Hall are engaged following a four-month romance.
The Australian newspaper tycoon, 84, and Texan model, 59, announced the news via an ad in the Forthcoming Marriages section of the Murdoch-owned Times newspaper.
It 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.â€
The pair reportedly got engaged over the weekend, though the former model didnâ€™t appear to be wearing an engagement ring when she was pictured at Sunday nightâ€™s Golden Globes ceremony in Los Angeles.
Rupert and Jerry only went public with their romance in October at the Rugby World Cup final in London.
The couple, who were reportedly introduced to each other in Australia by Murdochâ€™s niece and his sister, were pictured giggling and kissing in the stands as they made their first public appearance together since news of their relationship surfaced.
A source told the Sunday Mirror at the time: â€œRupert is smitten. Heâ€™s very happy because she makes him laugh and they get along so well. Theyâ€™re having a great time together.â€
The media mogul, whose fortune is estimated to be nearly Â£8billion, split from third wife Wendi Deng in 2013.
They have two children together, Chloe, 12, and Grace Helen, 14.
