Charlize Theron celebrated her first Mother’s Day this year! The celebrity single mom welcomed son Jackson in March via adoption and she says her life changed forever in that moment.
Over the weekend, Charlize told E! News, “It’s strangely everything that you’ve hoped for and it feels so right. I don’t know how else to say it. I feel like I can’t remember anything prior to him. I feel like it was always just meant to be what it is.”
Of her first Mother’s Day, which she spent overseas, Charlize said, “My mom and Jacks are here with me. We had a nice morning. He got to spend a little time with me and he got to have a little snuggle. I’m going to see them later tonight. It’s really nice to have him here.”
She also gushed about the instant bond she has with her son, saying, “It’s an overwhelming sensation of love. There’s almost a moment where I feel like I can’t remember anything prior to him. I feel like it was always just meant to be what it is. Everyday I’m just like, ‘It’s not possible to love you more,’ and then 20 minutes later you’re like, ‘Oh my god! How is this possible?’”
A source recently shared with Us Weekly that Charlize “has always wanted to be a mom,” adding, “she is glad to be able to do it on her own now and is so happy to be a mom.”
