Charlize Theron rarely shares photos of her children, but on Thursday she posted a precious moment with Jackson, taken soon after she became a mom for the first time.

"I became a mom right before we started shooting," the 44-year-old said on Instagram, talking about Mad Max: Fury Road, which is celebrating five years since its release.

"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'," she joked.

In the photo taken in 2015, Charlize is cradling a young Jackson in her arms. Her face is hidden in the snap.


Charlize is also mom to August Theron, and though she doesn't share much about her daughters, she has opened up about motherhood and what she hopes to teach her daughters.

At a fundraiser in 2019 she said: "I make a real point that very often we go and do something that is about service of others. When you put action to the words, the thing that you want your kids to learn, it's helpful.

"My kids love animals, and so they do a lot of volunteering at animal shelters. They clean up at shelters and things like that," she said.

"We just try! We just try to be of good service to our community."
