Charlize Theron & Baby Jackson – First Sighting of Her Baby Boy (VIDEO)

Charlize Theron has been keeping her son Jackson under wraps since announcing his adoption in March, but alas, the little man has made an appearance!

The 36-year-old Oscar winner was seen walking through the Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris, France, with her precious cargo, lil Jackson. This is the first time that baby Jackson has been photographed without his signature swaddling cloths. “It sort of looks a bit like a straightjacket — you’re like, ‘Is this child abuse?’ — but for some reason they just love it,” joked the actress.

The new mom looked effortlessly chic while Jackson was rockin’ a colourful stripped shirt and beige trousers. The Young Adult actress gushed to Vogue UK that Jackson is “incredible” and “the coolest kid ever.”

Theron adds that she hopes to instill the same values that her mom, Gerda, has taught her. “[I hope] to be like my mom. Fair, tough, loving and supportive. My mom has made it possible for me to be who I am. Our family is everything,” she reveals. “Her greatest skill was encouraging me to find my own person and own independence.”

The actress, who will be starring alongside Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth in Snow White and the Huntsman, hasn’t been in a relationship since her 9-year partnership with actor Stuart Townsend, 39. The two called it quits in 2010, but that hasn’t lessened Theron’s desire to have a family. “I’ve always known I wanted a family. I don’t think my mom could wait anymore!”

The never-before-married star adds that she feels touched by all the congratulatory emails and phone callls. “Everyone’s just been so lovely. So it’s been really nice.” It’s great to see the star out and about with her little man.
