Charlize Theron and Sean Penn 'planning summer wedding and adopting a baby'
As far as Hollywood's whirlwind romances go, this one is certainly up there.
Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron is reportedly set to wed her boyfriend of eight months, actor Sean Penn.
Theron, who already has an adopted son Jackson (two) is also said to be planning on adopting another child with her rumoured fiance while they temporarily relocate to her native South Africa.
"They want to get married very soon," a source told Us Weekly. "Sean is revitalized with Charlize."
While the pair have only been romantically involved for eight months, they have been friends for nearly two decades and provided a shoulder to cry on during the end of Penn's marriage to actress Robin Wright in 2009 and Theron's split with long-term partner, Irish actor Stuart Townsend in 2010.
The Monster star has managed to largely avoid publicly divulging information about her relationship, but she recently gushed about her other half while promoting her latest movie.
“I am very happy. I will say that… I'm very happy. I'm not very good at talking about my private life, but we are very happy, yes,” she told Extra.
