New mom Charlize Theron has proof that she planned to adopt all along.

Charlize, who just adopted a baby boy named Jackson, shares that she knew from a young age that she’d become a mom through adoption. “My mother found a letter that I wrote when I was 8 years old that said, ‘Would you please take me to an orphanage, so that I can go and adopt a baby?’ So, I think it’s been a while!”

She is busy with the promotion of two huge movies coming out: ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ and ‘Prometheus’. Charlize is getting a lot of help from her mom. “My mom is pretty amazing. I left today, I’m getting on a plane back tonight, and [she and Jackson] were at Macy’s shopping, so I’m hoping my credit card is OK!”

‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ hits theaters on June 1st and is followed by ‘Prometheus’, releasing on June 8th.
