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!

You people are so cynical. Just one problem: Oscar winner and hot A lister Charlize Theron does not need any publicity. Plus, she is from South Africa so adopting a child of color makes perect sense.

OMG- I am so very impressed! Why didn't I think of this -adopt a black baby trend! How noble of the million dollar celebs! These Liberal "Oscar Nominated" Role Models should share a Nobel Peace ! I cant wait for her next flick so i can rent the DVD and help suoport possibly yet another adoption? All along I've been doing things the hard way! Child Birth- Labor- Breast Feeding- Cutting out coupons- damn washing machine never stops! If I could be a complete Social misfit who was so completly full of herself then maybe I would get the recognition. Only thing left out is the name- MoonShadow?

She's nothing like Angelina, Angelina buys her kids from other countries at least Charlize adopted in the states. I don't care what nationality the baby is as long as it's from the US. There are so many children born here and not wanted yet bitches like Angelina goes to other countries and get children. Guess she hasn't heard of the old saying "take care of your own first".

Hollywood will stoop to anything to get noticed. These actors/ actresses will do anything to keep up with a trend. Most can't stay married for any length of time because they can't commit. Still- they go out and adopt someone who looks nothing like her own family. These people are stooping to an all time low. Always trying to make some kind of statement with hopes it will boost their career! Stupid has no limits! If they could only see how fake and vain they appear. I'm sure all the potential bachelors are just waiting to marry into to this group of born again starlets! All for the sake of stardom.

It's all so true. these celebrities adopt the complete opposite race kids so they can make some sort of modern day statement! They act as if they are going down to the SPCA and adopting a small dog. My guess is after that they let the Nanny take care of them 23 hours a day and in the 24th hour they drag them out for a photo op at a Zoo! Can you actually imagine any of these changing a diaper? Getting up at 2 AM for a feeding? Give me a break! Showboating and nothing more! Now if they were working the Window at Burger King - on their feet 18 hrs. a day taking care of kids- now that would be something to be impressed by! Give me a break! Phony to the core and NOTHING more!

Yup,she bought hereslf one of those trendy black Hollywood pets that she can trot out any time she needs a little publicity ,and for a nanny to take care of the rest of the time. Not only that,but she gets to call herself a mother without ever having to miss any work or put any strain on her body. Kinda like buying a lab coat and calling yourself a Doctor.

"Look at me, I'm a white girl from South Africa- watch me adopt a black child to prove I'm not racist!" There are MANY MANY MANY underprivileged children of ALL races to adopt, but all the Hollywood A-listers go adopt the black children to prove a point. Is that trend in ITSELF not racist from THEIR side???
