Charlize has adopted a beautiful baby boy called Jackson. He’s of African American descent and was born in the USA.

In a statement, published by US Weekly, a representative for Charlize said:

“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.”

Charlize is single at the moment, after her 9-year relationship with actor Stuart Townsend ended a couple of years ago.

We wish her all the best and we’re sure she’ll be a FANTASTIC mom!
