Jerry Hall, former supermodel and mother of four children with Rolling Stones front man Mick Jagger, is marrying Rupert Murdoch next month in London.

The two will wed at St. Bride's church on Fleet Street, known as the "spiritual home of British journalism."

Murdoch, the 84-year-old executive chairman of News Corp and 21st Century Fox, Inc., and Jerry Hall, who is 59, took out a ad in an issue of last month's New York Times announcing their engagement.

While the wedding will be celebrated at the church on March 5, it will be for appearances only. Jerry Hall and Rupert Murdoch will actually get married earlier at an undisclosed location.

"He will be having a service to celebrate the marriage," Claire Seaton from St Bride's told Reuters.

Rupert Murdoch divorced his third wife after 14 years in 2013, saying his marriage to Wendi Deng was "irretrievably broken."

Jerry Hall says she and Mick Jagger were married for more than 20 years, however during their divorce proceedings Jagger said they'd never been legally married.

Surely many are wondering what a beautiful 59-year-old woman is doing with an 84-year-old not-so-attractive man. The first thing that typically comes to mind is money.

Are Jerry Hall and Rupert Murdoch truly in love?

Only time will tell.

In the meantime, however, are you at all surprised by this strange union?

Jerry Hall and Rupert Murdoch have only been dating for a very few months.
