Celebaby: Charlize Theron Is A Mummy, So Is Una Healy

15 March 2012

Charlize Theron is a mummy!  Not for a movie role, not pretend, but for REAL - it's been announced that she's now the adoptive mother of a baby boy called Jackson.

Well, didn't THAT come out of the blue - sort of!  I say 'sort of' because Charlize has never made any secret of her desire to have a baby, even when she split up from her long-term boyfriend last year.

In interviews a few months after the split, she said, "I want a baby. If it would happen tomorrow I would be very happy."

She was asked whether or not she would consider becoming a single mother via adoption and her response was very clear, "Why Not?

Una Healy

Una Healy, of The Saturdays fame, has also become a mummy this week in what feels like the fastest celeb' pregnancy EVER!

Una Healy is engaged to Northampton Saints, and England, rugby player Ben Foden - I'm rather fond of these two as I'm a Saints girl and Ben scored a try against France in their Six Nations clash last Saturday, helping to beat them (and there are few things sweeter than England beating France on the rugby pitch!).

We knew a while ago that Ben and Una were expecting a little girl and they've given her the most beautiful name - Aoife Belle.  Aoife is a traditional Irish name meaning 'beauty' and Belle is a French spin of Ben's mum's name (Bell) which also means 'beautiful'.

Aoife Belle was born on Tuesday afternoon, weighing in at 7lbs 13ozs, with Ben announcing her arrival on Twitter...
