Actress Charlize Theron, 39, has adopted a second child. Just weeks after her split-up with actor Sean Penn. Charlize began the adoption journey for this second child about 6 months ago, and is now the proud mama of an African American girl named August. August joins 3 year old big brother, Jackson.  Jackson became Charlize’s son when she adopted him from her homeland of South Africa. When Charlize was just 8 years old she knew she wanted to be a mom, and that she wanted to adopt. In her letter to Santa that year, Charlize wrote, “What I want for Christmas this year is for you to take me to the orphanage so that we can adopt a brother or a sister.”
