If the kids don’t like the new boyfriend then he won’t last long, but Charlize Theron’s son Jackson seems to love her new boyfriend Sean Penn.

Charlize Theron was spotted grocery shopping at Whole Foods in West Hollywood, and she brought two shopping assistants along with her – son Jackson and boyfriend Sean Penn. When your new girlfriend already has kids there’s usually a lot to prove and a lot of sucking up to do, but Sean Penn seems to be doing just fine.

Sean made funny faces at little Jackson and entertained him constantly as the couple made their way around the store. There’s nothing better than a guy who can prove he’s good with kids.

The couple has recently been seen spending a lot of time together, including movie dates and even a trip to Hawaii. The couple’s first public appearance together was at Sean Penn’s Help Haiti Home gala, where they openly showed affection for each other with kisses on the neck, and even the lips. Talk about an adorable first appearance!

As the couple coasts through the “honeymoon” phase, we’ll see how long these two last together. Sean seems optimistic, openly stating, “She’s a keeper, that’s for sure.” From the outstanding way Sean played with Jackson, Charlize probably thinks that he’s a keeper, too.
