Theron adopted Jackson in 2012 and adopted August in 2015. When asked about Jackson's gender earlier this year, she said that her eldest child identifies as a girl.
“I thought she was a boy, too, until she looked at me when she was 3 years old and said: I am not a boy!” she told The Daily Mail. "I have two beautiful daughters who, just like any parent, I want to protect and I want to see thrive," she added.
"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."
