    How u twist stories is beyond me. It's a friend's baby. Do you people get your rocks off writing crap? Really!!!!

      Thomas - 2012-03-15 19:50

      Besides who's baby it is, these celebs adopt these babies when their own productive system is fine makes no sence!!! Normaly it's a black baby from Africa or one from the America! Next year instead of handing out Oscars they will just hand out babies from Africa!!!!!!!!1

    So Tilly, whats the right version, not adopted?? Adopted??

  • eben.ferreira1 - 2012-03-14 21:55

    What is it with these celebrities and adopting children. Its like taking in stray dogs

      Peter - 2012-03-14 22:19

      Is it White or politically correct?

      jpstrauss - 2012-03-15 18:33

      It's a "boy".

  • Stephen - 2012-03-14 22:14

    Leave her alone...The tabloids love to cause s..t to get their membership up and who pays for reading your s..t? The public and they get no real return for a happy live. We are full of s..t every day, and don't need the press to push it.

      Michael - 2012-03-15 09:49

      "A happy live" Wow, Ingrish as she is spoke!

      Kobus - 2012-03-18 07:35

      Ek se Woef ek se!!

  • marco.vanderlinde - 2012-03-15 06:44

    Whatever her reason - Congratulations to her and family, at least a young boy is secured of a promising future...

  • Michael - 2012-03-15 09:53

    I'm not one for adopting a child across the colour line as the child grows up with a complex and possible ridicule from other children. What is it with these celebrities adopting kids who are not of their skin colour. Take the Jolie/Pitt scenario - hey man, those kids must be confused. How the hell can his/her brother have chinese looks, or be black or whatever - it is just not right. In todays world these kids are going to go through hell - although they will live a life of luxury.

      chizgal - 2012-03-15 10:25

      you sure are going to be the guard @ the door when they walk through to HEAVEN.....why's it that when good is done, one has to find bad...even though it's not there? IF she adopted a child who's by far closer to her skin complexion or race, it's her choice...LOVE has no colour.....atleast the boy will have a better life. Some people realizes that instead of complaining about children being placed in foster homes or welfares it's better they create a better and warm environment for them.....SHOOT HER FOR SAVING A LIFE...Geeeezzzz!!!

      lydonmcg - 2012-03-15 18:46

      Yeah, I'm totally sure the kid is going to be ridiculed...what with Charlize Theron as his mother. Are you even listening to yourself?

      keith.gough - 2012-03-16 00:11

      You really have absolutely no idea of what you are talking about. A typical case of letting your ass overload your mouth. I am a parent of an adopted boy from a different race group, and all this confusion that you talk about is a non issue. I should know. we got our son at 4, and he is now nearly 18 and is completely well adjusted.

      maylani.bezuidenhout - 2012-03-16 20:23

      what does skin colour have to do with it? The little boy needed a loving home and she's available to provide it. Sure beats a life spent in foster homes and state orphanages.

  • chantelle.boheim - 2012-03-15 16:28

    Seems Americans are able to adopt more easily than here in South Africa. Unless you have a medical certificate stating that you cannot fall pregnant for whatever reason, adoption agencies don't even look at you. Which i think is rather unfair. Good luck to them!

      keith.gough - 2012-03-16 00:13

      That is not the case at all. One can adopt within one week if one is prepared to push for it. The only difference is that it becoes a foster situation untill all the red tape is processed, about 6 months.

  • ozzie.oz1 - 2012-03-15 19:13

    Are celebs today too scared to have their own? Eish!!

      Johnny - 2012-03-16 12:20

      Not prepared to give up her/their perfect figure/s for 9 months !!

      maylani.bezuidenhout - 2012-03-16 20:25

      wow look at you judging. Maybe she can't?

      Lynn - 2012-03-18 11:35

      Cos no-one wants her. That's why she cant. She had a super man and tossed him because her head got to big.....

  • Inky - 2012-03-15 19:18

    Who cares ?

  • sandy.langenstrass - 2012-03-15 22:33

    Well they really don't know what they are missing...the maternal instinct a Mother feels by giving birth, is natural and can never compare with adopting...the reason they don't want might mess up that famous figure..All the same it's her life and her Good Luck.

  • Alan - 2012-03-15 22:41

    'Two Sheds' Jackson? See Two Sheds Jackson on Youtube. Monty Python.

  • Zion - 2012-03-16 08:30

    Couldn't care less whose baby it is. The mother is still a great actress.

  • Mark - 2012-03-16 11:29

    This bimbo is a total idiot

  • Maggie - 2012-03-16 12:14

    When I read all the comments........I can just feel sorry for so many people......Get a life and leave the woman be. It's her choice anyway.......Start looking at your own sordid lives and stop pointing that nasty finger........Any child deserves love and happiness!!!!

      maylani.bezuidenhout - 2012-03-16 20:25

      well said.

  • Jean - 2012-03-16 19:11

    Is it really such a big deal, you people have issues with a woman adopting a child? Just stupid how South Africans can get upset about things that should have no effect on their lives.

      jpstrauss - 2012-03-17 08:17

      She adopted a rainbow child like Angelina Jolie. Children are NOT fashion accessories.

  • helene.pretorius - 2012-03-16 20:11

    What a "fantastic" role model ... she did not think that there might be a baby from Benoni who needs a Mommy urgently..

  • Julie - 2012-03-17 11:27

    Did'nt she adopt a black baby? That's the fashion lately......

  • Kobus - 2012-03-18 07:33

    Wonder if he is still on the breast.....

  • Michael - 2012-03-18 10:31

    she should have adopted Julius LOL

  • Frank - 2012-04-03 18:46

    This is a great
