Charlize Theron, Vogue UK

It's a new mom's prerogative to get gushy over her new addition, and first-time mama Charlize Theron, who revealed last month she had adopted son Jackson, was no exception when talking to Vogue UK this month.

In fact, the Oscar winner went so far as to declare that her bundle of joy is "the coolest kid ever."

Aww! So what else did she have to say about her newfound motherhood and the little man in her life?

"I've always been very honest in saying I wanted a family," she told the magazine. "I've always known I wanted a family. I don't think my mom could wait any more!"

Maybe that's just because her mom—a proud new grandma herself—had so many lessons to pass on.

The 36-year-old, after all, told Vogue she hopes her relationship with her son mirrors what she has with her own mom.

"[I hope] to be like my mom. Fair, tough, loving and supportive. My mom has made it possible for me to be who I am. Our family is everything. Her greatest skill was encouraging me to find my own person and own independence."

Well, she may think Jackson is the coolest kid ever—we're pretty sure he'll grow up to think the same about his mama!
