Rupert Murdoch to marry for fifth time as he announces engagement to Ann Lesley Smith

Rupert Murdoch and girlfriend Ann Lesley Smith are engaged, just seven months after the News Corp chairman reached a divorce settlement with his now-ex-wife, Jerry Hall.

This will mark the 92-year-old’s fifth marriage, as he was previously married to Hall, Wendi Murdoch, Scotswoman Anna Murdoch Mann, and Patricia Booker.

Murdoch proposed to Smith with an Asscher-cut diamond solitaire ring on St Patrick’s Day (Friday 17 March) in New York City, the New York Post has reported.
