Just a couple of weeks ago, Oscar winning actress Charlize Theron stepped into the role of her life when she adopted her little son Jackson.
And it has taken next to no time for mother and child to establish a powerful bond.
Speaking about her son for the first time, smitten Charlize has described the new arrival as "the coolest kid ever".
"I've always been very honest in saying I wanted a family. I've always known I wanted a family," she told UK Vogue.
She added that her own mother had been hankering for a grandchild for sometime and joked: "I don't think my mum could wait any more!"
The South African beauty will count on her relatives' support while raising little Jackson, saying that "our family is everything".
Charlize is embracing life as a single mother after separating from her long-term boyfriend Stuart Townsend in January 2011.
