Actress Charlize Theron may be busy promoting her new movie, Bombshell, with Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie, but she still has plenty of time to spend with her kids. The Oscar winner was spotted giving her 7-year-old daughter, Jackson, the biggest kiss on the cheek on Wednesday, October 23, in Los Angeles. How sweet!
Charlize is also mom to her 4-year-old daughter, August. As a single mom of two, the star has been trying to raise her kids in the best way possible. “You know, I think a big thing for me is kindness and knowing we live by our religion, which is ‘do unto others the way you want to be done to you,’” she recently told Closer Weekly and a few other reporters at the ELLE‘s Women in Hollywood Celebration. “So we’re big on respect and thinking of others before we think of ourselves.”
Adopting her two kids has been one of the best things Charlize has ever done and there isn’t a day that goes by that she regrets her decision to be a parent. “I had a strong need to be a mom,” she once told Elle. “I was always aware that there are so many children in this world who don’t have families. This was always my first choice.”
Once Charlize got the go-ahead to adopt August and Jackson, she relied on her mom, Gerda Maritz, for support. After all, she did reveal that she’s been single for 10 years. “I knew that I would [need] to have my mom help me if I was going to do this as a single parent,” she admitted. “To not acknowledge her in coparenting would be a lie. I’m so lucky to have that.”
However, Charlize is looking to be in a relationship again if the right person comes around. “Somebody just needs to grow a pair and step up,” she joked to Entertainment Tonight in April. “I’m shockingly available.”
We don’t know what Charlize’s future plans are, but we know she’ll always be a great mom to her kids!
