Everyone’s been talking about how they’re apparently set to wed – in fact, basically the only people who haven’t weighed in on the convo about their possible engagement are the lovebirds themselves – Charlize Theron and Sean Penn.
Word broke on New Year’s Eve that Sean, 54, had reportedly proposed to girlfriend Charlize, 39. The couple have been together since late 2013.
If the rumours are correct, it seems the Sean’s model daughter Dylan, 23 (from his marriage to Robin Wright), will be pretty happy about that. Here’s what she recently had to say about Dad’s partner in a recent interview: “She’s awesome. She’s great and they’re amazing together. As long as my dad’s happy, I’m happy for both of them. She’s the only woman since my mum who can shut my dad up. The only woman! That is a challenge so… She’s a powerhouse.”
And it seems that Sean must be a bit of a powerhouse himself if he managed to convince Charlize to tie the knot, considering in the past she has publicly commented on not wanting to get married: “Let’s put it this way: I never had the dream of the white dress. And watching other people getting married? I think it’s beautiful for them, but to be quite honest, usually I’m sitting there just devastated. It’s supposed to be this night of celebrating love, and all you see is a couple separated all night making sure everybody else is OK.”
This pair are clearly oh-so smitten, and we can’t wait to hear more details about their upcoming nuptials (and Charlize’s dress!). Congratulations to the future Mr and Mrs Penn!
Are you excited about Sean and Charlize’s wedding, Knotties?
