During a romantic trip to Paris, France, the couple reportedly took their relationship to the next level and got engaged, but it was anything but traditional.

The couple have yet to publicly announce their engagement but if the reports are true, let's hope third time's a charm for Penn, who has previously been married to to Madonna from 1985 to 1989, and to Robin Wright from 1996 to 2010.

This would be Theron's first marriage — although if this wedding happens we're not sure if we can expect to see photos of the big day, because it appears that these two like to keep things super low key.
