Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman plans to marry his step-granddaughter and possible mistress E'Dena Hines, family sources tell the National Enquirer.
The actor's nearly decade-long affair with his step-granddaughter, 27, hit the tabloids last month. E'Dena Hines is the grandchild of Morgan's first wife.
He and his now-estranged second wife, Myrna Colley-Lee, raised her.
The long-secret relationship with Hines likely led to the breakup of their marriage, say sources close to both Morgan Freeman and Myrna Colley-Lee.
That's bad enough. But today, The Enquirer reports that Freeman and Hines are planning to get married after Morgan's contentious divorce battle is over!

"Morgan has led her to believe that he wants to marry her," a family insider told the celebrity tabloid. "Becoming Mrs. Morgan Freeman has been E'Dena's goal."
Myrna, 68, admits she and Morgan have not shared a bed since 2001, and that they had an open marriage - with both Morgan and Myrna having other partners.
But she probably didn't think that included E'Dena Hines.
When Myrna realized they were intimate, she became so enraged that she threatened to sue E'Dena as "correspondent, as an adulterer, in my marriage."
