Charlize Theron is already an excellent actress, model and paragon of human attractiveness. Now she can proudly add “Mom” to her long list of “Things I Am The Most Awesome At,” seeing as how The Snow White and the Huntsman star announced today that she has “adopted a child.” According to the statement her rep gave People, “She is the proud mom of a healthy baby boy named Jackson.” We can’t wait until Theron’s son is old enough to see her killing it in Young Adult! Or Arrested Development! Or Monster! Oh wait…maybe not Monster until much, much later. Or never. In the meantime, who didn’t love Mighty Joe Young? Not us, that’s for sure!
With the arrival of her first child Theron joins the long, illustrious list of A-listers who have adopted adorable baboos, including but not limited to: Mariska Hartigay, Sandra Bullock, Madonna, Katherine Heigl and, of course, one Ms. Angelina Jolie. While having baby friends is clearly an important life goal for the currently unattached actress, getting married currently is not. “I really want for myself a long-term relationship, and I have been in long-term relationships,” Theron told Piers Morgan last year. “The actual ceremony is not something that is important to me, but I see the importance for other people.” Though, of course, if she decides to get hitched, Charlize will obviously be the best at it. In the meantime, congratulations to you, girl! And to tiny Jackson!
