Charlize Theron Welcomes Daughter August

Charlize Theron has adopted a second child, a daughter named August.
The actress worked with an adoption agency and gained custody of the baby, an African-American girl born in the United States, in July, PEOPLE has confirmed. The news was first reported by TMZ.
Theron adopted her older child, now 3½-year-old son Jackson, in 2012.
That spring, Theron told British Vogue, “I’ve always been very honest in saying I wanted a family. I’ve always known I wanted a family.”
“[I hope] to be like my mom. Fair, tough, and supportive,” she continued. “Our family is everything. Her greatest skill was encouraging me to find my own person and own independence.”
