The 'Snow White and the Huntsman' actress talks about embracing motherhood in an interview on Ryan Seacrest's radio show, and reveals what her favorite baby gadget is.
Charlize Theron is opening up about being a first-time mother to a baby boy. Just two days after announcing that she has had adopted a little bundle of joy she named Jackson, the Aileen Wuornos of "Monster" told Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS FM radio show that her life has changed "a tiny bit" since then.
During the phone interview on Friday, March 16, the former partner of Stuart Townsend said, "I now travel in a pack." She went on to note the outpouring of love and support she'd received since coming out with the adoption news. "Look, it's been amazing the amount of emails and congratulations," she dished. "Everyone's just been so lovely. So it's been really nice."
Asked what her favorite baby gadget is so far, Theron replied, "I didn't think I would be a fan of the swaddling, but the swaddling is pretty amazing." The Oscar winner, who revealed that her baby is now 4 months old, added, "It looks a bit like a straight jacket and it feels like child abuse, but for some reason they just love it."
Theron came public with the adoption of Jackson last Wednesday, March 14. While further details of her baby were not disclosed, Us Weekly claimed that the boy is African-American and was born in the United States. He is the first child for the single actress, who will be seen as Queen Ravenna in "Snow White and the Huntsman".
