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!
