Just a few weeks after the Academy Award-winning actors made their first public appearance together at a fundraiser for Penn's charity, the duo has decided to take their relationship to the next level.
"The two began talking about marriage in the last few weeks, after Sean moved into Charlize’s house. She has never wanted to get married, but seeing how Sean interacts with Jackson, she is having a change of heart," a source close to the couple told Radar Online. "For the longest time, Charlize thought it was just going to be her and Jackson, and she was ok with that. For her to now be talking about getting married is a huge departure for Charlize.”
Just last weekend the Gangster Squad star, 53, and the 38-year-old actress were spotted hanging out with Jackson during a beach getaway. At the time, Penn was spotted lovingly holding his girlfriend's 2-year-old son.
"He is even talking about adopting Jackson if they get married!” the source added.
Penn was previously married to Madonna from 1985 to 1989 and to House of Cards star Robin Wright from 1996 to 2010.
"[Penn] is in a very good place right now. He has been single for awhile after his divorce with Robin Wright. People didn’t realize how hard he took that divorce,” the source added. "He felt like a really big failure, he never wanted to be divorced. Charlize is truly the light in his life."
