What a difference eight months can make! Charlize Theron and Sean Penn may have only been dating for less than a year, but they're already talking about tying the knot and having a baby - all by the end of this summer!

The Oscar-winning actor pair are currently stationed in South Africa filming The Last Face, which Theron stars in and Penn directs. Aside from making a movie together, Us Weekly reports that the two want to make their relationship official and adopt a child together while in Theron's home country.

"They want to get married very soon," a source tells Us Weekly of the couple's wedding plans. Theron, who adopted her two-year old son Jackson, "always intended to have another child." This would be the third child for Penn, who is already father to 23-year-old Dylan and 20-year-old Hopper from his second marriage to ex-wife Robin Wright. His first marriage was his notorious nuptials to Madonna in the late 1980s.

Theron, on the other hand, has never been married but ended a long-time partnership to Stuart Townsend in 2010. "Sean is revitalized with Charlize," the source adds of their quick but fiery romance.
