A source said, "Leila has been in Sean's life for a while. They got together and then they broke up, and Sean won her back."

The insider added, "They got back together during COVID and became really close and got engaged a few months ago, early during quarantine."

Sean - who has children Dylan, 30, and Hopper, 28, with ex-wife Robin Wright, and was also previously married to Madonna - recently revealed he and Leila married over Zoom, with the officiant carrying out proceedings via video link.

He said, "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."
