Congrats! Charlize Theron has secretly adopted a baby girl, following her split with Sean Penn. This is the second child Charlize has adopted — she already has a son, Jackson.
Well, this came out of the blue! Congratulations to Charlize Theron, 39, who is now a mother to a new baby girl! The Mad Max beauty secretly adopted another baby in July — a sister for her son, Jackson, 4, and we couldn’t be happier for her. The adoption comes just a few months after her breakup with actor and fiance Sean Penn, 54.
Details about the new arrival are quite scarce, but Charlize has been working with an adoption agency for six months in her quest to add to her brood, TMZ reports. However, we do know it’s an African-American baby girl, and she was born in the United States. Her name is August. So cute!
Intriguingly, given the time frame Charlize was working on adoption proceedings, Sean must have known she was planning on adding to her family! Was Charlize’s decision to adopt a deal-breaker in their relationship? Did Sean not want to adopt? Or could it be something that brings them back together? These are questions that are all left unanswered for now. But Charlize must be over the moon to be a mom again!
In an interview with W magazine in April 2015, the Oscar winner revealed how rewarding it is being a mother. “I do know that choosing to be a mom in my late 30s has been really great for me,” she told the magazine. “It’s given me perspective,” she added. Charlize famously adopted son Jackson back in 2012.
Charlize Theron & Sean Penn End Engagement
Charlize and Sean, who were engaged to be married, called it quits in June 2015, in what was considered a shock split at the time. But as HollywoodLife.com previously reported, when Sean and Charlize attended the Cannes Film Festival together back in May 2015, there was trouble already brewing in their relationship. “Charlize wasn’t responding to his calls and texts,” a source told Us Weekly. “She just cut it off.”
HollywoodLife.com learned EXCLUSIVELY that Sean’s intense and serious personality was something Charlize struggled with. “Charlize was seeing that it was just too intense for her and she needed a breather,” our source said. “She still loves him and respects him to the fullest but she just needed to get out of his intense atmosphere. She is still very young at heart and he plays things by the book.”
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Will Charlize and Sean reunite for the baby? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
