Rupert Murdoch Engaged To Ann Lesley Smith

Rupert Murdoch, a multibillionaire media magnate, is getting ready for his sixth wedding.

On Monday, the 92-year-old businessman announced his engagement to Ann Lesley Smith in a piece that appeared in one of his magazines, the New York Post. Murdoch revealed to gossip journalist Cindy Adams that he first met his future wife in September while she was a guest at his Bel Air, California, vineyard, the Moraga Estate. Murdoch admitted that he was “extremely apprehensive” during their brief romance. “I feared to date because I knew it would be my last,” she said. It ought to be. I’m content.

Because he is “one-fourth Irish,” the founder of News Corporation got down on one knee in New York on St. Patrick’s Day and proposed with an Asscher-cut diamond solitaire.

This year’s wedding is scheduled for the end of the summer. Murdoch added, “We’re both excited to spend the second half of our lives together. Chester Smith, a country artist, and radio and TV executive who passed away in 2008, was previously married to Smith. The 66-year-old future bride claimed that she and Murdoch, whose empire includes outlets like Fox News and The Wall Street Journal, became close because of their mutual expertise in the media business.

“My husband was a businessman, just like Rupert. Worked for local publications, created radio and TV stations, and promoted Univision, a (Spanish-language TV network). I can converse in Rupert’s language. We hold similar values, Smith added.
