Theron adopted two dogs in December shortly before 9-day-old Jackson joined the family.
Charlize told Ellen DeGeneres of her dog’s relationship with her baby, saying, “From the moment this baby came into our home, those two dogs have never been more in love. It’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever witnessed.”
Charlize adds, “People keep saying, ‘Oh, you’re a single mom.’ I’m like, ‘Actually, I’m not. I’ve got two boys helping.’”
The actress said of her rescue dogs, “The pit[bull] woke up with me for every feed, for every change, and whenever the baby would cry the pit would start crying. He’ll do anything for that baby.”
Berkley, her terrier mix, likes to get the baby’s pacifier in his mouth.
We adore dogs and it’s a wonderful thing to rescue an animal, but would you feel secure with a pitbull around your newborn?
