Actress Charlize Theron is now the “proud mom of a healthy baby boy named Jackson,” according to a statement released to the Associated Press by her publicist. No other details were released but one report said that the boy was adopted from South Africa where Theron was born and raised. This is the first child for the 36 year-old who has been single since her split from actor Stuart Townsend in 2010. Theron has often spoken about her desire for children but has also said that marriage was “never something that was important,” according to People.com
In her latest film, Theron played a Kardashian-watching, Maker’s Mark-swilling, self-loathing 30-something in “Young Adult.” Not exactly great preparation for motherhood.
