First Look at Charlize Theron’s Adopted Son, Jackson

Charlize Theron made her way through LAX on Monday with a very important and adorable carry-on. For the first time, the new mother took baby Jackson out of his capsule and allowed the world to get a peek at her handsome adopted son. Jackson clutched his 36-year-old mommy as cameras happily snapped away at the precious baby and his multi-talented mother.

Photos released by X17 revealed Theron and her son dressed casually for their quiet day together. Baby Jackson looked too cute in his khaki pants and striped t-shirt. Jackson’s bright orange socks added an additional pop of color to the outfit that was finished off with his black sneakers. Mommy looked just as fashionable in a blue oversized cardigan, a white t-shirt, and a pair of perfectly fitted skinny jeans. Although most new mothers put on their favorite pair of flats when carrying about their child, Theron appeared to be quite the supermom as she strutted through LAX in chic ankle boots with some very skinny heels.

The South African actress announced her adoption of a baby boy back in March, but Jackson remained hidden from the public eye until now. The star of Snow White and the Huntsman told Vogue UK, “I’ve always been very honest in saying I wanted a family. I’ve always known I wanted a family. I don’t think my mom could wait any more!” It is apparent that Jackson is in the very loving hands of both his mother and his grandmother. Sources revealed that Theron’s mother frequently helps out with taking care of the baby, so attention will never be something that Jackson has to go without. The Oscar-winning-actress hopes to follow the footsteps of her mother as she raises Jackson. She shared that her goal is to, “be like my mom: fair, tough, loving, and supportive. My mom has made it possible for me to be who I am. Our family is everything.”

The model and actress looks forward to motherhood and claims she is lucky enough to be raising “the coolest kid ever.”
