Charlize Theron Becomes a Mother!

The Hollywood Mom club has a brand new member. Charlize Theron announced on Wednesday that she has adopted a son. The Oscar winner “is the proud mom of a healthy baby boy named Jackson,” her rep said in a statement.

Theron, 36, joins the ranks of a slew of actresses who have adopted a child as a single mother, including Sandra Bullock, Connie Britton, and Kristin Davis. Little Jackson — who was born in America and is of African-American descent — is the first child for the South African-born Theron, who is currently single following a nine-year relationship with actor Stuart Townsend, which ended in 2010.


Although she has said marriage was not necessarily on her to-do list, being a mother has been. “I want a baby,” she revealed last August. “If it would happen tomorrow I would be very happy.” Hinting at her desire to adopt, Theron added, “There are so many unwanted children on this earth and it’s our job to care for them. And if we don’t, we’re doing the world a disservice.”

An insider told Us Weekly that the “Young Adult” actress has “always wanted to be a mom,” and, in fact, was photographed snuggling a friend’s baby on the set of “Snow White and the Huntsman.” “She is glad to be able to do it on her own now,” adds the source. Congrats, Charlize!

Reese Witherspoon Meets Duchess of Cambridge

Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon said she was so nervous about the prospect of meeting the Duchess of Cambridge at a fundraiser that she couldn’t even decide what to wear.

“I must have tried on like six outfits,” Witherspoon, 35, tells Ellen DeGeneres in an interview to air Friday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “I’m meeting a princess. You don’t understand. You have to be wearing the right outfit and the whole thing. I don’t know, maybe we can be friends.”

Witherspoon’s preparations for the event, which Prince William also attended, apparently prompted some teasing from the star’s husband, Jim Toth.


“Whenever I am super excited about things, my husband calls it the double-barrel. That’s when I smile so big I look like a child,” she said, as DeGeneres showed a picture of Witherspoon chatting with Middleton, with the actress beaming like a kid on Christmas. Apparently the Duchess of Cambridge, 30, lived up to all of Witherspoon’s expectations.

“She was really nice,” Witherspoon told DeGeneres. “She was lovely. She’s so composed. She seems like such a lady and I think it’s so nice now days to see someone with such nice composure and carries herself so beautifully.”

As far as a budding friendship, Kate may be busy with social appearances and charity work, but Witherspoon isn’t discouraged.
