The Oscar-winning star already has one child, Jackson, 2, but she would love for him to have a playmate. It took two years for the Snow White and the Huntsman actress to get through the red tape of adoption, but nothing has made her happier than bringing the little bundle of joy that is Jackson into her life.
A source previously revealed to Us Weekly that the actress "has always wanted to be a mom. She is glad to be able to do it on her own now and is so happy to be a mom."
So it is little surprise that Theron now wants to experience motherhood all over again. According The National Enquirer, "Charlize admits it's a lot to go through, but she definitely wants Jackson to have a little brother. She's starting the process all over again right after the new year."
"She wants Jackson to have a sibling who isn't four or five years younger than him — she wants to raise them together."
It is rumored that the South African-born star may now be deciding to adopt a baby from her home country, although no plans have been confirmed.
The source added, "She's made no decision about that yet. She is eyeing the possibility of adopting a child from South Africa this time, but she hasn't decided. She just knows she wants another baby."
The blond beauty may be a single parent — she has not been in any serious relationship since her split with Stuart Townsend after nine years together in 2010 — but that doesn't mean she's not completely capable of doing it all on her own.
Theron previously revealed to Vogue U.K. that she is inspired by her own mother's parenting and hopes to be the same with her children.
"[I hope] to be like my mom. Fair, tough, loving and supportive. My mom has made it possible for me to be who I am. Our family is everything."
"Her greatest skill was encouraging me to find my own person and own independence."
