Morgan Freeman to Marry Step-Granddaughter
According to the National Enquirer, actor Morgan Freeman is set to wed his step-granddaughter. The magazine revealed in late June that sources claim the 73-year-old carried on a decade-long affair with his 27-year-old step-granddaughter E'Dena Hines. Now sources close the family tell them that he is planning to marry her.
E'Dena is the granddaughter of Morgan's first wife, whom he and his estranged second wife Myrna raised since she was a young child. Sources say that their long secret relationship is what led to the breakup of Morgan's marriage, and that they plan to marry after the divorce battle is over.
Once source revealed: "Morgan has led her to believe that he wants to marry her." and another source says, "Becoming Mrs. Morgan Freeman has been E'Dena's goal."
Meanwhile, Myrna, 68, has admitted that she and Morgan had not slept together since 2001. She also said that they had an open marriage, with both having other partners. At the same time he was said to be romancing E'Dena, Morgan was said to have carried on an affair with former schoolteacher Mary Joyce Hays.
