Rupert Murdoch Announces Engagement to Actress Jerry Hall

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch has announced his engagement to Jerry Hall, the actress and former supermodel who had a long-time relationship with Mick Jagger.

Murdoch, 84, and Hall, 59, placed a classified ad Monday in the Births, Marriages and Deaths section of the Times newspaper, which is owned by Murdoch's News Corporation.

The Times reports that Murdoch, the executive chairman of News Corporation, and Hall have been dating since late summer after being introduced by one of Murdoch's sisters and his niece in his native Australia. They made their relationship public in October when they appeared together at the Rugby World Cup Final and got engaged last weekend while attending the Golden Globes awards in Los Angeles.

Murdoch has six children from his three previous marriages. Hall, a Texas native, has four children with Jagger.
