Charlize Theron Adopts a Baby Boy!

Her character in ‘Young Adult’ might not be kid-friendly, but in real life, Charlize Theron is ready for motherhood.

Charlize’s rep said in a statement to People: “She is the proud mom of a healthy baby boy named Jackson.”

The rep added that Charlize “has adopted a child,” which is kind of obvious, unless she’s really good at hiding a baby bump. Other than that, though, no further details were released. It’s Charlize’s first child. Congrats!

Charlize ended her relationship with Irish actor Stuart Townsend in January 2010 after nine years together.

“It was sinking, and I had to give it a fight,” Charlize said about the split. “I really wanted to try and make it work. That was the priority. I wouldn’t do it any different way.”

After becoming an Oscar winning actress, Charlize admitted she felt pressured by the “life-changing” experience.

“It made people have a lot of opinions about what should happen next. You realize quickly that you can never please everybody.”

Following the split, Charlize said it was the “first time” she’s been single since nineteen. She’d been jumping from one relationship to another within a month, and added that she found a “comfort zone” in monogamy.

Hollyscoop talked to Charlize about life in her small hometown in South Africa. She told us she hasn’t forgotten her roots.

“I go back quite a bit,” Charlize told Hollyscoop. “I go back, and I love going back.” She added that her hometown “is lovely.”
