On Thursday, Charlize Theron opened up about her first child, Jackson.
The Mad Max: Fury Road actress revealed that she adopted her first daughter named Jackson
just a few months before they started to shoot the movie, in March 2012. She also adopted
her second daughter August in 2015.
The Oscar winner took to social media to remember that it has been 5 years since she won the
award for her action movie ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’, she won it in 2015.
Charlize stated that the shoot was “grueling” and an “intense shoot”, but “it was all worth
it”. She even searched for her favorite behind the scene moments to post on social media. In
the memories, there was a picture in which the actress was holding her first child.
She exclaimed that she became a mom just months before starting the shoot.
In the post, the Snow White and the Huntsman actress covered up her daughter’s face with a
heart. This is very rare as Charlize normally never posts pictures of her daughters on social
media and keeps them away from the spotlight.
In 2019, Charlize discussed the gender of her daughter. She stated that Jackson was assigned
male at birth, hence she also thought that she was a boy, until one day when Jackson was 3
years old, she came up to her and said that she is not a boy.
Like any other parent, Charlize also wants to protect her two beautiful daughters and wants to
see them thrive.
Later on, Theron stated that this is her daughter’s story to tell and if one day she felt like
telling it, she will. As a mother, she just wanted the world to know to “use the right pronouns
The 44-year-old disclosed that as Jackson grew older, people would still use the wrong
pronouns for her, including herself and that, hurt Jackson’s feelings.
Furthermore, she revealed that she doesn’t want to be that kind of mom and that is the reason
she is saying what she said a while back.
