Media mogul Rupert Murdoch engaged to ex-model Jerry Hall

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch has announced his engagement to actress and former model Jerry Hall, in the births, marriages and deaths section of The Times of London newspaper, which he owns.

The 84-year-old executive chairman of News Corp and 59-year-old Hall have been dating for four months, after being introduced in Australia by Murdoch's sister and niece, The Times wrote in an accompanying report. Their relationship became public after the pair was spotted at the Rugby World Cup final last October.

Murdoch divorced his third wife, Wendi Deng, in 2013 after 14 years of marriage. Hall was previously in a long-term relationship with Rolling Stones front man Mick Jagger.
