Sean Penn is officially off the market. The 59-year-old philanthropist, Oscar winner, and actor tied the knot with girlfriend of four years, Leila George, though their date of marriage is uncertain. It was fellow philanthropist, Irena Medavoy, who confirmed the happy news yesterday, via social media: "We are so happy for @leilageorge #seanpenn getting married. We love you. We are over the moon to find your soul mate true partner. You are meant to be together God bless you both." Medavoy added a handful of photos which included George's blue engagement ring as well as both husband and wife wearing matching gold bands.
Both Rosanna Arquette and Josh Brolin chimed in the comments with positive messages and emojis for Penn and George, 28. This is Penn's third marriage as he was wed to Madonna from 1985-1989 and Robin Wright from 1996-2010, with whom he has two children, Dylan and Hopper. Most recently, he was in a two-year relationship with actress Charlize Theron. For her part, Leila may not necessarily be a household name yet but you've probably heard of her father- actor Vincent D'Onofrio. However, George's indie film 'The Long Home' is in in post-production and co-stars James Franco (he's also directing the film), Courtney Love, Timothy Hutton, Ashton Kutcher, and more. It was expected to be released three years ago but is still awaiting release. This might just jump start it all.
The two have worked closely when it comes to philanthropy efforts including the Australian wildfires (George is Australian) as well as assisting with drive-thru COVID testing. We wish them nothing but the best and this seems to be an appropriate birthday gift for Penn, who turns 60 on August 17th.
