Charlize Theron may be a single mom but she’s definitely not raising baby Jackson, 4 months, alone. The actress recently visited The Ellen DeGeneres Show where she talked about her two guard dogs who lend a great deal of help in babysitting Jackson.  “Dogs tend to . . .it takes them a little bit to really fall madly in love with someone,” said Theron.


“[But] from the moment this baby came into our home, those two dogs have never been more in love. [When Jackson first came] the pit woke up with me for every feed, for every change. And whenever the baby would cry, the pit would start crying. It’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever witnessed,” she added.

In addition to discussing Jackson’s relationship with the family pets, Charlize also talked about the long process of adopting Jackson saying, “My mom said the most beautiful thing. She said, ‘You know, it took me nine months to fall in love with you while you were growing in my stomach, and it took you two years to fall in love with this little baby.” Although it took her two years to adopt and fall in love with him, baby Jackson was worth the wait. “[He’s] finally [here],” says Theron, “it feels exactly how it’s supposed to feel. I don’t know how to describe it. It just feels right.”
