Penn first confirmed he had married George last summer via a civil ceremony over zoom.
He flashed a gold wedding band during a Late Night with Seth Meyers appearance where he divulged: ‘We did a COVID wedding. By that, I mean it was a county commissioner on Zoom and we were at the house with my two children and her brother, and we did it that way.’
At 29, Leila is only a few months younger than his now 30-year-old daughter Dylan Penn, and only two years older than his son Hopper, 27.

However the relationship had its ups and downs as a source told PEOPLE in August 2020 that prior to their marriage he had to ‘win her back.’
‘They got together and then they broke up, and Sean won her back,’ said the insider. ‘He realized he had made a mistake and when he felt he might lose her, he worked hard to get her back.’
‘They got back together during COVID and became really close and got engaged a few months ago, early during quarantine.’
