Charlize Theron stepped out in Hollywood on Wednesday (March 14, 2012), just hours after it was announced she had adopted her first child. The South African born actress is now the proud mother of son Jackson, though further details on where the child was born or how old he is, are unknown.
According to the Huffington Post, Charlize was looking elegant in plunging black mini-dress as she arrived at the Hollywood Reporter's 25 Most Powerful Stylists luncheon in West Hollywood. The actress - who recently won high praise for her turn as a depressed author in 'Young Adult - posed with friend Katie Holmes and was all smiles. A source has revealed that the Oscar-winner has always wanted to adopt, telling People magazine, "Charlize has been trying to adopt a baby for a long time.She has been very patient and has a great attitude. [She] is ecstatic about finally becoming a mom". Though it's the actress' first child, it looks like she's already getting plenty of help from her close family, with the source adding, "Charlize's mom [Gerda] has been helping out with the baby.She seems so happy and will be a great mom".
