Charlize Theron adopts an African-American boy




We reluctantly have to offer something not Tampa Bay-related today, which is sad, because all we can scrape together today otherwise is the fact that Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron adopted a baby boy. Wait, what?

Us Weekly says the 36-year-old has adopted a baby boy named Jackson, although that's about all they have to offer. Jackson is reportedly African-American from the U.S., so she and Sandra Bullock will have a lot to talk about.

Theron has "always wanted to be a mom," a source tells the glossy. "She is glad to be able to do it on her own now -- and is so happy to be a mom!" The adoption, which comes a couple years after she ended a nine-year relationship with Stuart Townsend, happened quickly after "the baby became available," the source says. She didn't say anything about it on Top Chef this season, either.
