Sources tell Us Weekly the 54-year-old actor has filed papers to adopt his rumored fiancée’s 3-year-old son, Jackson. The Oscar-winning actress adopted Jackson as an infant.
“Sean always knew that to truly earn a place in Charlize’s heart, connecting with Jackson was one of the most important parts,” an insider told the magazine.
