"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," the ad said.
According to The Times, Hall and Rupert have been dating since being introduced by his sister and niece over the summer. They reportedly became engaged this past weekend in Los Angeles, where they were in town for the Golden Globes.
Murdoch, 84, is the CEO of News Corp and 21st Century Fox and has an estimate net worth of $12.7 billion. Hall, 59, is a former model and actress best known for her 23-year relationship with Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger, with whom she had four children. The marriage will be a first for Hall, and a fourth for Murdoch.
