Charlize Theron “loves” being a mother to Jackson, seven, and August, three, and says she is at complete “peace” with who she is as a person now.
The ‘Long Shot’ star says her daughters – Jackson, seven, and August, three – make her life complete and she is at complete “peace” with who she is as a person.
She said: “I love being a mum. By the time I had kids, I was really ready. I’m in bed at 7:45 every night now, and I love it because I’ve lived. If I die tomorrow, I’m at peace with who I am in my life.”
Charlize is now at a place where she can “create a life for her own kids” as she admits she didn’t discover therapy until her 30s.
She told the July issue of Australia’s Marie Claire magazine: “I didn’t discover therapy until my mid-30s. My reasons for going had a lot to do with South Africa and uncertainty and living with an alcoholic every day. What I discovered was my life was an all-encompassing thing. It showed me I can see the big picture and understand the reason to get to a place where I could create a life for my own kids.”
Charlize previously shared she is raising “two beautiful proud black African girls” after revealing her seven-year-old Jackson – who was introduced to the world as a boy – identifies as female.
She said: “I have taught them a little Afrikaans, but it’s a language filled with very conflicted history. I am raising two beautiful proud black African girls and I want them to find themselves and not necessarily push my ancestry on them, but I have taught them two very sweet Afrikaans songs about politeness.”
