So remember all the way to yesterday when Charlize Theron announced that she had adopted? Yeah, that was crazy, right? We were all like, “that came out of left field” and also, “Is Angelina Jolie her co-parent?”
Anyways, here are the details about her new son. His name is Jackson and he is an African-American boy that she adopted here in the United States.
Yesterday, Charlize stepped out to a luncheon for the Hollywood Reporter’s 25 Most Powerful Stylists, she was there to support her stylist Leslie Fremar, but didn’t open up about her new baby boy.
A source said that Charlize had been wanting to adopt for some time now and “this just came up again a few months ago [when] the baby became available.”
Theron has been single for over a year when she called it quits on her nine-year relationship with Stuart Townsend, but the source says she has “always, always wanted to be a mom.”
Charlize followed in the footsteps of other single moms who have adopted, like Sandra Bullock and Denise Richards.
“She is glad to be able to do it on her own now – and is so happy to be a mom!” says the source.
This is Charlize’s first child. Congrats!
