New Mom Charlize Theron Loves Swaddling

This week, actress Charlize Theron announced that she’s now a mom — she adopted a four-month-old baby boy, named Jackson. And while she was on Ryan Seacrest’s morning radio show promoting her new film Snow White and the Huntsman, she talked about her life as a new mommy. Charlize said she now “travels in a pack,” but is grateful for all the support. “It’s been amazing, the amount of emails and congratulations,” she said. “Everyone’s just been so lovely, it’s been really nice.”

When Ryan asked about her favorite baby gadget so far, Charlize sang the praises of a swaddle blanket. “I didn’t think I would be a fan of the swaddling, but the swaddling is pretty amazing,” she added. “It looks a little bit like a straightjacket and you just feel like it’s child abuse, but for some reason they just love it.”

Congrats Charlize!
