Jerry Announces Engagement

Jerry Hall has announced her engagement to media tycoon Rupert Murdoch three months after making their relationship public.

The union will be the first marriage for the Texan-born supermodel, who never formally tied the knot with her most famous former partner - and the father of her four children - Mick Jagger. Their 1990 symbolic ceremony in Bali was declared invalid by the High Court of England in 1999.

Although the news may come as a surprise to some, the way the couple decided to make the announcement with a traditional listing in the births, marriages and deaths section of The Times is not - the newspaper is one of the titles in Murdoch's News Corporation portfolio.

"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," read the placement.

While it will be the first marriage for Hall, 59, it will be the third for Murdoch, 84, who divorced Wendi Deng in 2013. No further details about the marriage or when it will take place have been disclosed, but a spokesperson for the couple told the BBC, "They have loved these past months together," and are "thrilled to be getting married and excited about their future".
