Charlize Theron is reveling in motherhood today after adopting a baby boy. When the heck did this happen? Read on to find out!
“Charlize Theron has adopted a child. She is the proud mom of a healthy baby boy named Jackson,” the rep said.
The Academy Award-winning actress was spotted on the set of Snow White and the Huntsman snuggling an infant in January, but media reports stated the child belonged to a friend. Now we know it was her new bundle of joy!
The gorgeous blonde is going it alone and enjoying single motherhood. She ended her nine-year relationship with fellow actor Stuart Townsend in 2010 and has only been casually attached to a few guys since then — but now little Jackson is the main man in her life.
Not that a mate matters all that much to Theron. Despite her penchant for serial monogamy, the star said that marriage isn’t all that important to her.
“I really want for myself a long-term relationship, and I have been in long-term relationships,” Theron told Piers Morgan last June. “That’s the kind of union that I want. The actual ceremony is not something that is important to me, but I see the importance for other people.”
“I treat my relationships like marriages, I really do,” she said. “[Marriage was] never something that was important [to me].”
Not a surprising attitude coming from someone with such a brutal family history: Her abusive, alcoholic father was shot dead by her mother in self-defense after he threatened to kill both of them.
Congrats to the new mom!
