This was the summer of Charlize Theron and Sean Penn engagement rumors. After a year of dating, though, they are reportedly set to marry!
It all started in July when Theron was spotted wearing a diamond ring on that finger. While it was later confirmed that the blonde bombshell bought the Anita Ko gold leaf and diamond ring for herself, later that month whisperings emerged that the two actors were planning to get married in the summer and adopt children together after only eight months. Talk about commitment!
Alas, that never happened, but now, according to Us Weekly, Penn is ready to settle down for the third time (he was previously married to Madonna, and Robin Wright for 14 years). It all went down during a romantic trip to Paris last month, a source says, in which Penn decided he wanted to take their relationship to the "next level." The illustrious source also noted that "there's no ring, but they are committed."
Sure, the rumor sounds a bit fishy, but we're hoping the engagement is all systems a-go! Not only have they been spotted out and about in Los Angeles looking extra cozy lately, Penn has been often seen sauntering around with his beau and her two-year-old adopted son Jackson. A true sign of love!
One thing is for sure: If they are indeed engaged, Theron will make one killer bride. Of course, we don't see her in a traditional wedding dress — she'll almost certainly wear a slip-like sheath in an offbeat or metallic hue.
Congrats to the couple! We'll keep you posted on any developing details.
