Charlize Theron: I Didn't Aim To Be A Single Mother

Charlize Theron carries her adorable baby boy Jackson out and about on Thursday (May 17) in Madrid, Spain.

The day before, the 36-year-old actress and her Snow White and the Huntsman co-star Kristen Stewart hit up the film’s Madrid photo call together.

Charlize recently opened up about becoming a single mom to Jackson.

“You know, I don’t think any mother aims to be a single mom. I didn’t wish for that, but it happened,” she told Australia’s Madison magazine (via Us Weekly). “I always knew I would adopt. Always,” she added.

    What a handsome little man Jackson is ? So precious.

  • Ugonna Wosu

    soooo CUTE!!!!!

  • alicia

    Kudos to Charlize for having a heart and adopting! Maybe that is what came between her and Stuart-some people feel strongly that their children must look like them/be theirs biologically and they simply can’t love a child that’s not “theirs”. If that’s his trip, she is much better off single.

  • Dee

    i love Charlize, what a cute boy,i hope she does this really from the bottom of her heart, love, these days i can’t tell anymore celebrities are doing it (adoption) as their accessories, trend or genuine.

  • Lila

    Lovely!

  • Dude

    She looks happy and it’s a great thing she gave the little guy a home and she looks like she will be an awesome mother

  • Swattibex

    @Dee:

    This will sound terrible but even if celebs are doing it because of the trend, they still have the resources to give a child a much better upbringing than knocking around the foster care system. Charlize is a sane and stable woman.

  • katien

    What a little cutie!

  • seriously?

    @Dee: Not really it may look like a trend because they’re celebs but it’s not their fault that the media wants to report every aspect of their life. Most celebs adopt because they know they can give the child a better life at least she is trying to build herself a family and not partying and sleeping with various men.

  • Leenah

    He looks just like Sandra Bullock’s baby!

  • fb

    just another attention seeking ho

  • Cherie

    While I think it’s absolutely noble that celebs and other people give up having a natural kid to adopt kids from less fortunate countries, I think a line needs to be drawn that it doesn’t always encourage the people in the less fortunate countries to have more and more kids than they can afford for the sake of selling them.

  • chelle

    OMG! I could just squeeze those little cheeks! He’s a doll and a very lucky little fellow!

  • Sabrina

    She adopts Kristen’shoes ! :D

  • just saying

    Weird that the first baby she adopts is a black baby. Even if he’s with a celebrity mom it’s gonna be a tough road for this boy, maybe even tougher because she is white. I hope she will be able to help him and be able to handle all the racism and bigotry that will definitely come his way.

  • Matahari

    To say that Charlize adopts kids as accessories is an insult to this woman’s intelligence. She is far TOO SMART for that!

  • Jenny

    Charlize and Kristen are a riot on El Hormiguero in Spain doing press for SWATH! Here is the link. Altogether there are 6 parts. Enjoy!! But please bear with the ad in the beginning.

    @Cherie: selling them? I was adopted sweetie and my biological parents didn’t make a dime.

  • http://beautyofmind.blogg.se Ina

    @just saying: My mom is white and the only problem I’ve ever had to face is people like you. Shame on you! Comments like yours is what fuels racism!

  • http://beautyofmind.blogg.se Ina

    What a beautiful family! It’s sad though to see so many racist comments hidden behind “concern for the child”. When you say that I’m different from you because of the color of my skin, that’s when racism begins.

  • jennifer

    And he is Beautiful.

  • heels

    Someone said in the last thread about her, heels and the baby. Lookie here she is wearing sneakers, surprise. People say celebs don’t read gossip sites. LOL!! they do! She is Fake.

  • quivox

    Good Luck finding a husband now………………

  • Jupiter

    @quivox: Don’t you worry about her – she is Charlize Theron for goodness’s sake!

  • Candy

    Women celebrities like her adopt because they don’t want to gain weight then go through the ordeal of losing it so they adopt.

  • Panda

    He is ADORABLE. Those cheeks! I can’t even

  • beautiful

    She covers Madison June (Australia) she looked fabulous with a red dress love the look ! here it’s http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-moms/news/charlize-theron-i-never-dreamed-id-be-a-single-mom-but-it-happened-2012185

  • Whycantipost

    I said this in another CT-topic too; but if someone adopts for the sake of attention, they will get a couple of months coverage maximum. Raising a kid costs 18 years. Do you seriously believe someone is gonna take care of a kid for 18 years, just to gain a couple of months of coverage? No. Come on people.

  • sarah

    Wish them all the best such a sweet adorable family!

  • hmmmm

    she’s using her baby as a pr stunt to promote her movie. don’t like that.

  • koisha

    WHAT A UGLY LITTLE NIGGA. SHE IS ALREADY MOLESTING HIM AND WATCH OUT… HE WILL TURN GAY … YOU WAIT BITCHES.

  • koisha

    HOLLYWOOD IS A SATANIC AND EVIL PLACE !!! THAT KID WAS ONLY ADOPTED SO SHE AND THE HOMOFACIST ACTORS COULD PROMOTE THEIR ABNORMAL/PERVERTED LIFESTYLE ON THE REST OF US !!! I GUESS HOLLYWOOD ONLY ADOPTS NIGGAS AND NOT ASIAN OR INDIAN CHILDREN CAUSE IT IS POLITICALLY CORRECT AND LOVE SUCKIN BLACK PEEPEE !!!!! WHO IS GONNA RAISE HIM WHILE YOU WORK 12 -18 HOUR DAYS ???? DAYCARE IS NOT RAISING A CHILD !!!!!! ANY HOLLY WOOD BIOTCH CAN DO THAT !!!!! YOUR VALUES/MORA;S ARE SO PERVERTED !!!!!

  • Concerned

    @koisha: Koisha, get help, you are so sick in your head.

  • pretty.nice.

    charlize is south african so i think she can handle raising a black boy in our american culture.

  • KK n K

    @koisha:
    Do you borrow your mother’s white sheets too and rope to go out and preach your hate. Really you’re still using that word on a baby. You are sad low life and if anything you said was true it was immediately discredited by your racial discrimination. He is a baby for christ sake he can no quicker choose his parents as he can the color of his skin. I F**king hate people like you with your discriminations. Just go die deep hole and be done with it.

  • koisha

    excuse me ???????? i am a proud strong african-american woman and i these black babies donot need to be raised by you white devils just to makes yourselves feel better for all the hate and discrimination you gave my peoples !!!!!!! that black baby is my blood not yours !!!!! and he will be raised up in a “white culture” which is intolerable !!!!! your white guilt is showing !!!!! you dont see black folks adopting out of their race do ya ?????? shame on you !!!!!!! that poor baby will grow up not knowing the rich diverse african=american culture !!!!! charlize is from south africa, but she came from $$$$$$ so she is nothing like my people there and her own family exploited my people there workin my people to the bone . but i guess you would not know anything about that do you ??????????? i will put a voodoo curse on her and watch what happens to her career and health !!!! my people from the kabye tribe are not to be messed with !!!!!!!

  • wellnow

    Adorable child. Wonder if Chelsea Handler and Charlize will still get together for their booze fests, you know all of Handler’s friends are booze hounds. Wonder if Handler will make racist comments about Charlize’s baby? How will that feel? CH and her BFF will probably do it behind her back.

  • P.

    She’s so fake.
    Using the baby like an accessorie for getting media attention.

    What a shame!

  • Ace

    @koisha: If you’re black, Perez Hilton is straight.

    Stop trolling you bored lunatic.

  • Jenny122

    I agree with Koisha. It seem to me this Holywood folks are always TRYING TOO HARD not to look RACIST toward BLACKS by adopting most of the time BLACK BABIES… You have S. Bullock, Jolie, and now this one.. Its very rare they adopt babies from India, China or some other asian countries. Or how come she didn’t just adopt a white Baby from poor countries in Eastern Europe? What is it about Black Babies this Holywood Weirdos they find so special about?

  • anne

    Um, Jenny, maybe Charlize and Sandra just want to be MOTHERS and were not looking for a specific skin color when trying to adopt, like many other people do. There are a lot of non-white babies available for adoption, as well as whites, you know.

  • llws88

    So cute! I hope she finds the right man eventually :)

  • mimi

    @Cherie:
    what are you talking about the boy is american and was born in american so whats this about stealing/selling kids from other countries. while that does happen this is not the case here. charlize adopted an american child

  • why not

    Are there actually any famous and rich black people adopting white babies? or even black babies?

  • food for thought

    That is a VERY good question, #45. And I think we all know the answer to that one.

  • Truth

    Sorry but.. I don’t agree with black babies being raised by white parents or vice versa. As a Black woman I don’t feel that white parents know how to efficiently raise someone that isn’t their ethnicity. Or to prepare them for the world as an African American. I don’t understand why some white people adopt out of their race. This is her first child, I don’t buy her.. This is not a racist rant but if you are of color you know what I mean!

  • pls

    Also there are so many unfortunate orphans of WHITE heritage..why not adopt one of those kids? She might be able to take care of this child financially. But no way will she be able to emotionally & teaching him about his culture.

  • LaCroix

    I agree with @pls & @Truth .. you do not see any African American Actors/Celebs adopting any WHITE children .. please show me one that has.. this is just like a damn trend now. And just because Charlize is from South Africa does not mean she can show this child anything about his culture ..her skin is white. That is the cold hard truth.

  • Lane

    That baby is not cute all. Shame… She could have such beautiful biological kids.
