This time, it's a girl: Charlize Theron has adopted her second child, reports Us, a newborn named August, who joins big brother Jackson, 4. Unlike Jackson, who was adopted from Theron's native South Africa in 2012, August was born in the United States. Theron worked with an adoption agency for six months, reports TMZ; the adoption went through last month. The addition comes on the heels of Theron's split from Sean Penn, who Us notes had wanted to adopt Jackson. Meanwhile, the new mama is already being embarrassing. (More Charlize Theron stories.)
