When two become three. Actress Charlize Theron has added to her family by adopting a second child.
The Hollywood beauty, who already has a four-year-old son, Jackson, who she adopted back in 2012, has also adopted an African-American girl, born in the United States. According to sources at TMZ, Charlize Theron had been working with an adoption agency for six months in order to make August (her baby’s name) hers.
The Mad Max star’s latest addition to her family comes a few months after her sad split from her fiancé Sean Penn. However, that won’t phase the star, who has been a successful single mum so far, and always expressed her desires to have a family. She once said in an interview: “[I hope] to be like my mum. Fair, tough, and supportive. Our family is everything. Her greatest skill was encouraging me to find my own person and own independence.”
She also said in a recent interview with W magazine: “I do know that choosing to be a mum in my late 30s has been really great for me. It’s given me perspective.”
There were rumours that Sean and Charlize, a renowned philanthropic couple, intended to adopt a child together following their wedding, however while the relationship is off, the 39-year-old South African wasn’t giving up on her family dreams.
“The Pitt woke up with me for every feed, for every change,” she added, “and whenever the baby would cry, The Pitt would start crying.”
We wish Charlize Theron every success with her new family.
