Charlize Theron has shared an update on her children, revealing that they are “dance-obsessed.”
The “School for Good and Evil” star, 46, discussed the latest milestones of her daughters August, 7, and Jackson, 10, during an interview with People at the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project 2022 Block Party.
“They’re just so tall,” Theron shared. “My 10-year-old is like under my chin, and I don’t know what’s going on. But they’re happy, and they’re healthy, and they’re very happy that it’s summer.”
The Oscar winner also noted that her children are “still just loving dance,” so much so that Theron has become a “dance mom.”
“They’re so dance-obsessed,” she explained. “They’ve forced me into becoming a dance mom, which is like, just so insane, but that’s what I am now. I’m literally just an Uber driver, and I show up to recitals. That’s it.”
Theron welcomed Jackson via adoption in 2012. August joined the family in 2015.
In 2020, the actress shared via Instagram a throwback photo of her and her eldest daughter on the set of “Mad Max.” In the snap, Theron was in full costume and makeup as her character Furiosa while she cuddled Jackson.
“I became a mom right before we started shooting. At least my child will forever have the fun fact of ‘I spent most of the first year of my life in a war rig’ (special appearance by my incredible customer Inge Hough),” she wrote in the caption.
The “Bombshell” star previously opened up about her decision to adopt as a single parent during an interview with NPR in 2019. Theron had no specific race or gender in mind when she decided to adopt, saying she “wanted to believe that somehow my child would find me in the way that we were just meant to be.”
“In whatever country they would allow me as a single woman to adopt, that’s where I filed. And it just happened to be that both my children ended up being American,” she explained. “They were born in the United States, and they both happened to be African American. Everything that I hoped would happen during my adoption process did happen because these two babies were meant to be in my life — and they’re my children.”
Theron will appear in Netflix’s “The School for Good and Evil,” which premieres in September.
