As you probably know by now, Oscar winners Charlize Theron, 38, and Sean Penn, 53, are dating. And according to Us Weekly, they've got some mega plans in the works as they get set to travel to her birthplace, South Africa, later this summer:

a) filming the movie The Last Face, which Sean is directing and Charlize is starring in—with Javier Bardem;

b) getting married;

c) Adopting a child together.

"They want to get married very soon," says a source for the mag. "They always intended to have another child."


Aside from hanging out with Charlize's two-year-old son, Jackson, it's been quite a while since Sean had a little one in his life—he's dad to Dylan, 23, and Hopper, 20, with former wife Robin Wright.

In the meantime, the actor has reportedly baby-proofed his Malibu home for little Jackson. Back in March, the Daily Mail shared photos of a new fence around his swimming pool and a backyard trampoline.

Sean and Charlize have been dating for just eight months, but their friendship goes back as far as 18 years. This will be her first trip down the aisle and the third for Sean, who was also married to Madonna in the late '80s (forgot about that!).
