The media mogul's firstborn daughter, Prudence Murdoch, followed in her dad's footsteps and became a media executive. She played a vital role in her father's NewCorp and later on, she became a board member of its subsidiary, Times Newspapers Ltd.

Speaking of Grace and Chloe, nothing much is known about Rupert's daughters with Wendi Deng. It's only apparent that the Australian mogul is close to his third wife and their two children.

In November 2019, they were all pictured together at a New York City charity event, posing for the cameras. Besides, Grace and Chloe also took some snaps with their father's step-daughter, Georgia, who is the daughter of Murdoch's fourth wife, Jerry Hall.

The Murdochs

Despite Rupert Murdoch's numerous marriages, he remained close to all his children. He once stated that he had always been proud of his six kids and tried to spend as much time with them all as possible.

So long as I can stay mentally alert — inquiring, curious — I want to keep going. I love my wife and my children, but I don't want to sit around at home with them. We go on safaris and things like that. I can do that for a couple of weeks a year. I'm just not ready to stop, to die.

Rupert Murdoch is currently 88. Although he devotes all his time to his new wife, Mike Jagger's ex, he seemingly tries to dedicate his attention to everybody. We think he's a doting father and granddad, so hopefully, he will never break a special bond between him and his kids.
