Charlize Theron adopts baby girl in US

LOS ANGELES: South African-born actress Charlize Theron has adopted her second child, an African-American newborn named August, US media reported.


The baby joins Theron’s first child, Jackson, who was adopted in South Africa in 2012, according to celebrity news website.

The 39-year-old American actress reportedly adopted US-born August in July.

Theron and actor Sean Pean recently called off their engagement, following reports that Penn planned to formally adopt Jackson.

The critically acclaimed actress won a Best Actress Oscar for her role as a prostitute-cum-serial killer in the grisly 2003 film “Monster.”

She is also known for her roles in “The Devil’s Advocate,” “The Cider House Rules” and “Mad Max: Fury Road.”
