If the puppy-on-baby love doesn’t get you, the tiny spacesuit will. We readily admit to being big cry babies; put a dog, toddler and/or elderly person in a car commercial and we are on the floor, wracked with sobs. As such, hearing Charlize Theron talk about adopting her infant son Jackson had actual tears of adorableness sliding down our faces onto our keyboards. The sweetest things the the Snow White And The Huntsman star said of becoming a new family include:
- On her canine companions: “This was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever witnessed. From the moment this baby came into our home, those two dogs have never been more in love.”
- On the lengthy adoption process: “My mom said the most beautiful thing. I’m going to cry. She said, “It took me nine months to fall in love with you while you were growing in my stomach; it took you two years to fall in love with this little baby.”
- On being a mom: “It feels exactly like it’s supposed to feel. I don’t know how to describe it. It just feels right.”
On, and then Ellen gives Charlize a little space exploration suit for Jackson to wear in honor of her upcoming sci-fi thriller Prometheus. Good thing we put this dog bed under our desk to curl up and sob on. If that wasn’t enough cuteness to tug at your heartstrings, check out some photos of Charlize and Jackson out and about under the jump. After that…just try looking at that teeny helmet again, because you are made of stone!
