Charlize Theron Carries Her Cutie

Such an adorable mother-son duo!

Prometheus actress Charlize Theron was photographed taking her 1-year-old son Jackson to a children’s gym in West Hollywood, Calif. on Tuesday (February 12).

Charlize recently threw her gorgeous guy – whom she adopted in early 2012 – a superhero-themed party on January 8th at the Coop, a play space for kids in Studio City, Calif. (Ashlee Simpson and ex-husband Pete Wentz threw a similar bash at the same venue for son Bronx‘s 4th birthday in November.)

“Charlize absolutely adores [Jackson],” an insider says. “They have the most wonderful relationship.”

“[Jackson] was jet-lagged, so when everybody sang ‘Happy Birthday,’ they had to whisper it. She didn’t want it to be really loud.”

    Why is she trying so hard to look like a lesbian??

    • LaKesha

      What would be wrong with that?

    • Dana

      pretty sure she cut her hair short for a movie role and it’s just growing out now.

  • kids first

    Another child who has to grow up without a father PURPOSELY. Interesting how Charlize didn’t.

  • Meliss

    He was adopted. So before that he had no parents. Charlize had a father, but he was abusive and her mother ended up killing him in self-defense. I’d rather have a single mother than no parents or an abusive father.

    • kids first

      What so because he was adopted he doesn’t deserve a mother AND a father, he should take what he gets? I agree that I’d rather have a single mother than abusive parents but that is not the issue, the issue is that she PURPOSELY adopted knowing that the sweet little angel would not have a father figure, and you are sticking up for her, not the innocent child, as usual.

      • Lola

        Well, he’s better with one loving parent than in an orphan.

        • kids first

          How about a third option? How about he is adopted by TWO parents, as in it takes TWO parents to make a baby. Where did you get your kids from, a sperm bank?

      • Melissa

        As usual? You don’t know me and I don’t think I’ve ever commented on this issue before but ok. My point is that I’d rather he be adopted by a loving single mother than nobody at all. Clearly you don’t agree. You act as though she inflicted herself upon this poor chiild. As if he had tons of other opportunities with two parents. Nonsense. Do you know how many kids sit in foster care for years? Especially little black boys? I am sticking up for him because I’ve seen what that does to kids. Get over it. Nobody is asking you for child support so I don’t know why it’s really any of your concern.

        • kids first

          The child cannot stick up for himself, that’s why its my concern and will be until selfish people like you put KIDS FIRST, or take responsiblity for their actions, whichever comes first. I’m sure your comments will really soothe him as he grows up and sees countless other children interacting with their father. Perhaps he can say to himself and I quote: ‘Oh well, it’s not as though I had countless other options, being black I’m glad I’m not in an orphanage.’

          And to explain ‘as usual’, it means that everyone who comments on this site (including you) NEVER sticks up for the child, continually berates children (jennifer garners kids, jennifer lopezs kids to name two), and cannot take it when someone sticks up for the defenceless child.

          • Meliss

            You’ve obviously never read any of my comments. I actually stopped commenting on this site for a while because people say evil things about kids. I’ve stuck up for them and then I get hateful comments thrown back at me. I like all of the people and kids you mentioned. In addition, I speak from experience as I grew up without my father. But I had father figures who were better examples than my bio dad.

            This isn’t a case of sticking up for a kid. Nobody is saying anything about him. The argument seems to be whether she should have adopted him. I say every child deserves a good home, regardless of the number of parents in it. Just like the one I had.

            Again, you don’t know me to call me selfish. The reason I say what I say is because I used to work with kids who had no parents. I know for a fact they would have taken the first good home that came along. Whether it was two parents or one.

    What’s up with the hollywood trend of white actresses adopting black babies? Bullock, theron, connie britton, kristin davis, jolie, madonna, etc. seems to be an “in” thing to do to make them feel validated.

    • Really?

      Interesting that when celebrities are adopting Asian kids comments such as the one above (Anon) are non existent, so why now? hmm…

  • mj

    I agree with you, put Kids first. The child doesn’t deserve a single parent, or abusive parents, it deserves the best intentions from it’s adopted parents. Charlize adopted for herself, she wasn’t married and is getting on in life. It’s the adoption laws that are bullshit, they shouldn’t allow a child to be adopted into a single parent household. It’s not a dog from a pound, it’s a human being who already has had an unfair start to life.

  • Isabella

    No, I have heard comments about white celebrities needing to validate themselves somehow by adopting Asian babies. Just as I have heard comments complaining that white celebrities don’t adopt Hispanic/PuertoRican kids , ever.

    Justin Bieber, is that you?
