South African movie star Charlize Theron has adopted a baby boy according to her representatives, the 36 year-old thus having parentage of her first child. The move comes a little under two years after the actress split from her long term partner of nine years Stuart Townsend, with many thinking before their break up that they were destined to start a family together.
Now it looks as though the 'Monster' actress has decided to have a go at it solo, with a rep telling Us Weekly "Charlize Theron has adopted a child. She is the proud mom of a healthy baby boy named Jackson." No further details have as yet been given about the boy or where he has come from, but a source told the same magazine "She has always wanted to be a mom; she is glad to be able to do it on her own now and is so happy to be a mom."
