In 2010, Charlize Theron split with her boyfriend of nine years, Stuart Townsend, and earlier this year adopted her son, Jackson, something she never thought she would do without a man in her life. She told Ellen earlier this year that she is not a single mother because she has two boys (her dogs!) to help her out with the baby. She said in an interview: "I've been in two serious relationships from the time I was 19 and I'm single for the first time in my life since then," Theron says, "but there's something really powerful in being OK with being alone, especially for women. I'm really at peace with this and feeling good about it."
