Charlize Theron is moving on with her life and hasn’t let her breakup with Sean Penn slow her down.
At a time when a lesser woman will be stuck at home with a Ben&Jerry and a box of tissue, the award winning actress went out and got herself a company in person of a cute new baby, this time a baby girl, who she named her August. The two Academy Award winning ex-couple were engaged to be married and were reportedly making adoption plans, together.
Us Weekly reports. The child is African American and the actress’ 2nd adoption. Charlize adopted her first child – a son – from South Africa in 2012. His name is Jackson.
The South African beauty spoke to W Magazine about becoming a mother in her late 30s: “I do know that choosing to be a mom in my late 30s has been really great for me.” she added that “It’s given me perspective.”
The former couple split up six weeks ago after 18 months together. Rumours say “Charlize wasn’t responding to his calls and texts,” after the split.
The pair were thrown together in South Africa for the re-shoot of “The Last Face”, which the 39-year-old beauty is the lead role and the 54-year-old star is directing.
Close parties claim they appeared stone-faced and “tense” whenever they were in close contact with one another on the set.
