(Newser) – Morgan Freeman plans to marry his step-granddaughter, whom he and his now-estranged second wife raised from childhood, family sources tell the National Enquirer. E’Dena Hines, the 27-year-old granddaughter of Freeman’s first wife, has been engaged in a secret affair with Freeman for nearly 10 years, and “becoming Mrs. Morgan Freeman has been E’Dena’s goal,” says a source. The affair allegedly led to Freeman’s current divorce battle.
