Rupert Murdoch, 92, set to marry 5th time

Murdoch announced his engagement to Ann Lesley Smith, 62, whom he met last September at an event at his vineyard in California

92-year-old media tycoon Rupert Murdoch has announced his engagement to his 62-year-old partner Ann Lesley Smith, a former police chaplain.

He will be marrying Smith in late summer. In between, the couple will spend their time in California, Montana, New York and the UK.

The duo met in September at an event at his vineyard in California.

Murdoch told the New York Post, "I dreaded falling in love - but I knew this would be my last. It better be. I'm happy."

Earlier last year, he split with his fourth wife Jerry Hall.

Smith's late husband was Chester Smith, a country singer and radio and TV executive.

Smith told New York Post, "I'm a widow of 14 years. Like Rupert, my husband was a businessman... so I speak Rupert's language. We share the same beliefs."

The businessman currently has six children from his first three marriages

Before Hall, Murdoch was married to Australian flight attendant Patricia Booker, Scottish-born journalist Anna Mann, and Chinese-born entrepreneur Wendi Deng.
