92-year-old billionaire media mogul, Rupert Murdoch is set to tie the knot with his new girlfriend, Ann Lesley Smith, less than a year after his fourth divorce.
Rupert Murdoch, who hopes that this will be his ‘last’, announced his engagement to 66-year-old Ann Lesley Smith in an interview with one of his own publications, the New York Post, on Monday, March 20.
In the interview, Murdoch revealed that that he proposed to Ann with an Asscher-cut diamond solitaire ring on St. Patrick’s Day in New York City.
Murdoch, who has been married four times before, admitted that he was ‘nervous’ about proposing yet again, admitting that he had ‘dreaded falling in love’ – but that he is confident that his marriage to Ann will be his ‘last’.
“I was very nervous,’ he shared while revealing that the pair plan to wed this year, in late summer.’ I dreaded falling in love — but I knew this would be my last. It better be. I’m happy.” He said.
On how they met, Murdoch told the Post that they met at an event at his vineyard in California in September.
“We’re both looking forward to spending the second half of our lives together,” he added.
