Charlize Theron: Adopting a Baby Boy!

by at . Comments

Charlize Theron is now a mom!

A rep for the Oscar-winning actress said in a statement: "Charlize Theron has adopted a child. She is the proud mom of a healthy baby boy named Jackson."

According to sources close to the single Theron, little Jackson was born here in the United States, and is African-American. Jackson is the first child for Theron.

"She has always wanted to be a mom," the source said of the 36-year-old. "She is glad to be able to do it on her own now and is so happy to be a mom."

The never-married South African split with actor Stuart Townsend in 2010 after nine years together. The breakup prompted a whole new chapter in her life.

She told the December 2011 issue of Vogue:

"This is the first time [being single] in my life. From the time I was 19, I've been in relationships, literally gone from one to the other within a month."

Congratulations on her newest relationship - with Jackson!

Wow...some of you really need to get a life. Why so judgemental? Why don't you bitch about your own lives and intentions rather than someone else you don't even know. Congrats Charlize.

Hi,This is Pragathi and i have placed an Order on 19th of October. But till Nov 1st i have not revieced any confirmation E Mail or something else regarding my order. A week back the CC Executive told me that i can get confirmation mails in last week of October and will receive the product in 1st week of November. But the latest news is that i can get the product after 204 weeks only. No Shopping site taking this much time to deliver the product. Its seeming to be a waste site. This will be used to see and enjoy only. This site wont work well to purchase anything bcoz u may loss interest to wear it after getting it for 3-4 weeks.If anybody planned their occasion after an year then can purchase from this site.

@susanne that is just the saddest comment I have read. There is a lot of hatred in your words towards a person you don't even know. Her decision to adopt is the greatest gift she can give and you're frowning upon that? how shameful. I bet your child wasn't even planned as carefully as she planned adopting that child.

I agree smh, you might want to add Denise richardson to the list as well. No one had anything negative to say about her adopting a hispanic baby.

What is the big deal that she adopted a CHILD of a different race. I am so sick of people having a problem with these actors who choose to adopt Black children. They need homes just like any other race of kids. You ever stop to think that maybe there aren't very many "WHITE" kids available for adoption? Have you ever thought that people don't see a color/race but a CHILD IN NEED OF LOVE & A HOME? Would the lot of you be happy if she adopted children from China or somewhere in europe/Asia instead? I didn't read any such comments as this when Katherine Heigal adopted her Asian baby, Nor did I hear this when Mia Farrow & Angelina Jolie until they adopted Black children. We are all human beings, of all the issues in the world this shouldn't be one of them. The whole lot of you are nothing more then peices of racist scum.

Image- is everything in todays world- BELL! The idea out in "Cali" is to set the trend! The Capital of California " Hollywood" has a certain mind set! Some push seals back in the water! Some use the same piece of Aluminum foil for a freaking year- others Adopt Black Babies! They just have to be different! Nothing better than going to a picnic and saying " nobody else has what I have" aren't I special. To adopt a white child does not carry the same clout on the " Set" as what you see now! Seeming Heroic is a necessity when keeping an image!

Not to sound Racist but... Does Anyone in Hollywood want a Caucasian/ White baby anymore? I don't think Any Caucasian in Hollywood in quite a few years has except Denise Richards has.Just wondering why no one seems to want to adopt white babies anymore???

Wv peach

Good for Charlize! Black kids are the last to be adopted as many people only want White or Asian children. It's awful to read some of these racist comments, especially calling the child derogatory names. smh......
