Billionaire media mogul Rupert Murdoch is ready to walk down the path of marriage for the fifth time at the age of 92.
92-year-old business tycoon Rupert Murdoch announced the news of his engagement to Ann Lesley Smith in an article published Monday in the New York Post, one of his publications.
Rupert told the gossip columnist Cindy Adams when he met her and every detail of him being fallen in love with her.

Rupert revealed that he met his soon-to-be wife in September when she visited his vineyard, the Moraga Estate, in Bel Air, California.
He further said, “I was very nervous,” Murdoch said of their whirlwind romance. “I dreaded falling in love – but I knew this would be my last. It better be. I’m happy.”
The News Corp. founder proposed an Asscher-cut diamond solitaire in New York on St. Patrick’s Day, because he is “one-fourth Irish.”
The pair intend to get hitched in late summer this year. “We’re both looking forward to spending the second half of our lives together,” Murdoch said.
Lesley was previously married to Chester Smith, a country singer, and radio and TV executive, who died in 2008.
Lesley Smith Shared Her Side Of Love Story
Lesly Smith, the 66-year-old bride-to-be revealed that she and Murdoch, whose empire includes outlets like Fox News and The Wall Street Journal, bonded over their shared knowledge of the media industry.
“Like Rupert, my husband was a businessman. Worked for local papers, developed radio and TV stations, and helped promote (Spanish-language TV network) Univision. So I speak Rupert’s language. We share the same beliefs,” Smith said.
Everyone’s aware that it’s going to be Murdoch’s fifth marriage, he was previously married to former flight attendant Patricia Booker, journalist Anna Murdoch, and entrepreneur Wendi Deng. He has six children.
Back in 2016, he married his fourth wife, former model Jerry Hall, at St. Bride’s Church on London’s Fleet Street.
But last year they divorced. Murdoch and Lasley didn’t disclose any further details regarding marriage.
