(CNN) — Charlize Theron is known for playing a safe-cracker, a serial killer and a super-hero, but the Oscar winner recently signed on for a different role.

The South African actress, who last appeared in Diablo Cody’s “Young Adult,” is a new mom.

“Charlize Theron has adopted a child,” her publicist told CNN. “She is the proud mom of a healthy baby boy named Jackson.”

We’re not sure if Jackson is currently the only man in Theron’s life or not, but, as the actress has said, she has no intentions of walking down the aisle.

When telling CNN’s Piers Morgan why she supports gay marriage in June 2011, the actress said, “I don’t (think I’ll ever get married),” adding, “I treat my relationships like marriages.”

Theron’s next film, “Snow White and the Huntsman,” will hit theaters on June 1. She plays the evil queen alongside Kristen Stewart (Snow White) and Chris Hemsworth (The Huntsman).
