Report: Charlize Theron and Sean Penn Getting Married Soon and Adopting a Baby Together

When Charlize Theron and Sean Penn confirmed they were dating earlier this year, many people were surprised.

Aside from their 15-year age difference (Charlize is 38 and Sean in 53), a lot of people simply wondered: what is she doing with him?

Well, it turns out she just might be marrying him and then adopting a baby with him, according to a new report by Us Weekly (via the Daily Mail).

Us’ source saysThey want to get married very soon.” The two Oscar winners only got together romantically 8 months ago, but have known each other for years. Charlize apparently has seen a change in Sean, and now feels he’s “a wiser soul and much more patient.”

The Young Adult star also sees Penn as a father figure to her son, Jackson, 2. After they tie the knot, the unlikely couple plan on adopting a baby together. According to the magazine, “Charlize always intended to have another child.” 

Theron and Penn are just about to start working on a film together, which will be shot in Charlize’s native South Africa. The film, The Last Facewill feature Charlize as a doctor doing humanitarian relief work in Africa amidst violent political conflicts in the region. Penn will direct the love story, which co-stars fellow Oscar winner Javier Bardem.
