Charlize Theron on Her "Amazing" Adoption Experience

By shanaaborn |

Charlize is a mom and an evil queen!

The news about Charlize Theron‘s adopting a baby boy is just two days old, but already she’s been flooded with well wishes from all over.

On Ryan Seacrest‘s KIIS-FM radio show today, the new mom expressed her gratitude for the support. “It’s been amazing, the amount of emails and congratulations,” she said. “Everyone’s just been so lovely – it’s been really nice.

Charlize offered a couple of tidbits about her child and her new life (“it’s changed a tiny bit. I travel in a pack”).  For one thing, little Jackson is four months old.

She also talked about her favorite “baby gadget.”

“I didn’t think I would be a fan of the swaddling,” she admitted, “but the swaddling is pretty amazing. It looks a bit like a straitjacket, but for some reason they love it.”

Charlize has more than one reason to be excited this week: Her new film, Snow White and the Huntsman, will be out this summer. She plays the evil queen – and her interpretation of the character was sparked by none other than Jack Nicholson in The Shining.

“She’s locked in her hotel castle slowly going crazy!” she said. “It was definitely very inspiring.”

We’re sure that Charlize will be a much better mother to Jackson than the Queen was to Snow White – but as we all know, she’ll have to be prepared for the day when she says no to a cookie or a later bedtime and her son yells, “You’re the meanest mom EVER!
