Former Supermodel, Jerry Hall, 59, beamed with a loving glare as she officially became the wife to Billionaire Media Mogul Rupert Murdoch, 84, at a private ceremony in St Bride’s Church, on Fleet Street, London. The pair emerged from their wedding at Spencer House, overlooking Green Park, a venue which is described on its website as ‘one of the most sumptuous private residences ever built’ in the capital, smiling for photographers.
Jerry Hall wore her trademark blonde hair in waves, and had a smart handbag slung over her arm. She wore a trench coat, a knee-length navy skirt and flat shoes, while Murdoch wore a navy suit. As she beamed for the cameras and tossed her hair, she ensured photographers got the perfect snap of her 20-carat marquise diamond engagement ring, thought to have cost £2.4million.
The superstar couple are no strangers to celebrity relationships. Rupert has four daughters from three marriages; Prudence, 57, Elisabeth, 47, Grace, 14, and Chloe 12. Jerry has two daughters, Lizzie, 32, and Georgia, 24, from her relationship to Sir Mick Jagger. Mr Murdoch was first married to Patricia Booker, a former flight attendant from Melbourne. They had a daughter, Prudence, together but split in 1966 after 11 years of marriage. A year after the divorce, he married Glasgow-born journalist Anna Torv, who he met when she was working with a newspaper in Sydney and had the chance to interview him.
The couple had three children together and were married for more than 30 years before ending their relationship in 1999. Just weeks after the divorce, Murdoch married Wendi Deng, a businesswoman from China, who he met while she was an intern at a TV station owned by News Corp. She was 38 years his junior and had previously been married to a man 30 years older than her. Murdoch and Deng split in 2013 and he remained single until news of his relationship to former model Jerry Hall – 25 years his junior – was announced last year.
