Rupert Murdoch ‘Happiest Man in World’ After Marrying Jerry Hall

Rupert Murdoch wed former supermodel Jerry Hall in a low-key ceremony in central London on Friday, the fourth marriage for the media mogul.

The 84-year-old executive chairman of News Corp and owner of 21st Century Fox Inc, and Hall, 59, smiled happily for photographers after the ceremony at Spencer House, an 18th-century mansion built for an ancestor of Princess Diana.

Murdoch, dressed in a navy suit, and Hall, wearing a pale-grey trench coat and flat shoes, began dating last summer after being introduced while in Australia and were first seen in public together at the Rugby Union World Cup Final in London in October.

They got engaged in January in Los Angeles where they had been attending Hollywood’s Golden Globes awards ceremony.

On Saturday, the couple will celebrate the marriage with a service at London’s historic St Bride’s church, famed for its wedding-cake spire.
