Actress Charlize Theron Adopts a Son, Jackson

Would you adopt a child on your own if you were in your mid-thirties, single, very rich plus had your own amazing mom nearby? Actress Charlize Theron has opened up about life with adopted 6-month old son Jackson. And she said, “I feel like I can’t remember anything prior to him.”

The Oscar-winning “Monster” star became a first-time mom in March, and she chose Mother’s Day month to open up about life as a new parent.

The 36-year-old blond beauty adopted chocolate-skinned son, Jackson back in March but only recently unveiled him. Before his airport appearance, Charlize kept Jackson hidden under a blanket while she toted him around in his baby carrier. The fierce mother has reportedly stated that her African-American son was born in the USA.

Theron has been open in the past about her hopes to one day have a child.

“I always knew that I didn’t want to get married. I’ve always known that I’d be a mom from the time I was a little girl,” she told W magazine.

This is the first child for the South African-born actress, 36, who split from beau Stuart Townsend in 2010 after nine years together. We think that  giant breakup prompted a whole new chapter in her life. She told the December  issue of Vogue, “This is the first time [being single] in my life. I’ve been in relationships since I was 19 years old.”

Would you be up to adopting as a solo mom if you could afford it, just as Theron can?
