Charlize Theron's son is ''the coolest kid ever''.
The 'Young Adult' star revealed last month that she had adopted a baby boy called Jackson and the actress is smitten with the tot.
She told Britain's Vogue magazine: ''Jackson is incredible, the greatest gift. He is the coolest kid ever.''
Although the 36-year-old actress' adoption was a surprise to her fans, she admitted she was coming under increasing pressure from her mother Gerda to provide her with a grandchild.
She said: ''I've always been very honest in saying I wanted a family. I've always known I wanted a family.
''I don't think my mom could wait any more!''
Charlize is incredibly close to her mother and says she wants to be the same type of mom to Jackson.
She explained:''I hope to be like my mom. Fair, tough, loving and supportive. My mom has made it possible for me to be who I am. Our family is everything. Her greatest skill was encouraging me to find my own person and own independence.''
Charlize - who split from boyfriend Stuart Townsend in January 2010 after almost nine years together - adopted Jackson as a single parent.
