Charlize Theron has adopted her second child.

After working with an agency for six months, Theron got custody of the American-born girl in July and has named her August.

The actress adopted her son Jackson, now 3, in early 2012 after a two-year adoption process. She once became emotional when describing to Ellen Degeneres how long the process took. (RELATED: Charlize Theron Invited Obama To The Sleaziest Place On Earth)

“It took around two years,” Theron said. “My mom said the most beautiful thing. I’m going to cry. She said, ‘It took me nine months to fall in love with you were growing in my stomach.’ She’s like, ‘It took you two years to fall in love with this little baby.'”

“It really took two years of just waiting and then one day it’s finally there. It just feels exactly how it’s supposed to feel. I don’t know how to describe it. It just feels right.” (RELATED: Woman Calls Cops Because Charlize Theron Put Her Child In Timeout)
