Model Jerry Hall and media baron Rupert Murdoch have announced their engagement just five months after they started dating.

The 59-year-old model and the 84-year-old media baron - who is the executive chairman of News Corporation - announced their happy news in the Births, Marriages and Deaths page of the Times newspaper, just five months after they began dating.

The notice read: "Mr Rupert Murdoch, father of Prudence, Elisabeth, Lachlan, James, Grace and Chloe Murdoch, and Miss Jerry Hall, mother of Elizabeth, James, Georgia and Gabriel Jagger, are delighted to announce their engagement."

A spokesperson for the couple told the MailOnline: "They have loved these past months together, are thrilled to be getting married and excited about their future."

The business magnate popped the question over the weekend in Los Angeles, where they attended the Golden Globe awards ceremony together, after being introduced to one another in Australia by Murdoch's sisters and niece.

Rumours the couple were dating first started to circulate in October when they were spotted attending the Rugby World Cup final in London between Australia and New Zealand.

This will be the first time Hall has officially walked down the aisle, as her 1990 Bali wedding to Sir Mick Jagger - the father of her four children - was ruled to be invalid when they split in 1999.

Australian-born Murdoch - who now has US nationality - has made an honest woman out of three lovely ladies, with his split from his third wife Wendi Deng taking place in 2013.

Last August, Hall admitted she was keen to marry again.

She said: "I'd like to settle down with someone. There's nothing nicer than someone who is loving and caring.

"Getting married again is a nice idea. Actually I don't think you'd need to get married, it's the company that would be nice.

"But I haven't met the right person to get married to since my divorce from Mick."
