Billionaire Rupert Murdoch set to marry for 5th time at 92

Billionaire media mogul Rupert Murdoch is getting married for the fifth time, as told to his own tabloid newspaper, the New York Post on Monday. The 92-year-old media titan is engaged to Ann Lesley Smith (66).


Saying that this marriage would be his last, Rupert said, “I was very nervous. I dreaded falling in love — but I knew this would be my last. It better be. I’m happy."


Murdoch's business empire includes Fox News in the US and the rightwing tabloid the Sun in the UK. As the head of News Corporation, he also owns the New York Post, the Wall Street Journal, and the publishing house Harper Collins.


The two have planned a summer wedding with Murdoch saying they look forward to spending the second half of their lives together.


Murdoch and Ann Lesley Smith met in September of 2022 at a 200-person event held at his Moraga vineyard in Bel Air, California. "I met her and we talked a bit. Two weeks later I called her,” said Murdoch, recounting his first meeting with his fiancee.


Murdoch has been married four times and has six children from his first three marriages. He had Prudence MacLeod with his first wife Patricia Booker and sons Lachlan and James with his second wife Anna Mann. He has two more daughters – Grace and Chloe – with his third wife, Wendi Deng. Murdoch’s fourth wife was the former supermodel Jerry Hall, from whom he split in 2022.
