‘Life a blur before son’

2012-05-15 11:33

Los Angeles – Charlize Theron can’t remember her life before becoming a mother.

The 36-year-old actress – who adopted son Jackson in March – said at the London premiere of her movie Snow White and the Huntsman that everything before he came into her life is a blur.

She told E! News: “It’s strangely everything that you’ve hoped for and it feels so right. I don’t know how else to say it.
“I feel like I can’t remember anything prior to him. I feel like it was always just meant to be what it is.”

The single parent celebrated her first Mother’s Day overseas as the American holiday fell on Sunday.

She revealed: “My mum and Jacks are here with me. We had a nice morning. He got to spend a little time with me and he got to have a little snuggle.

“I’m going to see them later tonight. It’s really nice to have him here.”

Charlize – who hasn’t been in a serious relationship since ending her nine-year partnership with Stuart Townsend in 2010 – is amazed by how quickly her bond with the baby began.

She added: “It’s an overwhelming sensation of love.

Everyday I’m just like, ‘It’s not possible to love you more,’ and then 20 minutes later you’re like, ‘Oh my god! How is this possible?’”
