Charlize Theron Has Revealed Her Eldest Adopted Child Has Come Out As Transgender
Hollywood actress Charlie Theron has revealed that her eldest child Jackson is being raised as a girl.
The Atomic Blonde star adopted two children since 2012, and despite seven-year-old Jackson being born a boy, she now says she is identifying as a girl.
The 43-year-old adopted Jackson back in 2012, and added a little girl named August to her family in 2015.

Speaking about the story, the Oscar winner said she listened to Jackson and is raising her how she sees right.
“Yes, I thought she was a boy, too. Until she looked at me when she was three years old and said, ‘I am not a boy!” Charlize told The Daily Mail.
“So there you go! I have two beautiful daughters who, just like any parent, I want to protect and I want to see thrive.
“They were born who they are and exactly where in the world both of them get to find themselves as they grow up, and who they want to be, is not for me to decide.
“My job as a parent is to celebrate them and to love them and to make sure that they have everything they need in order to be what they want to be.
“And I will do everything in my power for my kids to have that right and to be protected within that.”
