Theron’s two dogs are fiercely protective of the family’s new addition, the Oscar winner told DeGeneres. ”It was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever witnessed. From the moment this baby came into our home. Those two dogs have never been more in love. It’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever witnessed.
“People keep saying, oh you’re a single mom and I’m like actually I’m not. I got two boys (her dogs) helping me out. It’s incredible. This is Berkley, a terrier mutt and he’s actually the pacifier thief. He’s eyeing the pacifier (photo of dog and baby) He’ll just lay there with the pacifier in his mouth. Then the Pitt (bull) is beyond. The Pitt woke up with me for every feed, for every change, and whenever the baby would cry the Pitt would start crying.
DeGeneres asked how the mother-son bonding experience was going, and Theron explained that the entire adoption took about two years. ”You know, it took me a while. The process, it took around two years. 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.”
