Are Charlize Theron and Sean Penn planning to wed?

Summer is just around the corner, which means wedding bells for couples around the world, but is nuptial bliss on the cards for Charlize Theron and Sean Penn?

That’s the rumour going around after a source close to the couple reportedly said “they absolutely want to get married.”

Charlize, 38, and Sean, 53, have been dating for the past year, and in March the Milk star began baby-proofing his Malibu home to welcome the Academy Award-winning actress and son Jackson.

There’s no denying that Charlize is absolutely over-the-moon with her current life and relationship status. The actress reveals in the July 2014 issue of Esquire that her life is exactly how she wants it, noting, “I’m just saying, a life is good if it’s the life that you want. I am living my life in a way that if tomorrow it ended—and I hope not because I have a kid—but if it did, this was the life that I really wanted to live.”

But the Million Ways to Die in the West actress, who split with Stuart Townsend in 2010, says she wasn’t always ready for new love, but then something just clicked, like a switch. Charlize told Esquire: “One day you go: Oh, [Jackson’s] almost two now, and he has his little activities that he goes to and he’s got a bedtime now, and you have more time again. And it’s like if you are open to something, if you just let it happen, it will happen. When you least expect it.”

Sean was married to Madonna from 1985 to 1989, and he has two children with his second wife, House of Cards star Robin Wright.
