Aww, Gorgeouses, Charlize is wearing a little "J" for Jackson on her neck (bottom left). I love that idea!

The Snow White and the Huntsman star is definitely content with her new life as mom to 4-month-old Jackson, whom she adopted from a US agency.

“I am just overwhelmed at how it is everything I ever wanted. It’s just been incredible so far,” the Oscar-winning actress, 36, says in the latest double issue of Hello! Canada Magazine. “It’s just surprising that your heart can turn into mush like that over the most incredible little stranger.” Oh, yeah, we get it!

Check out what Charlize says in this snippet of a chat she had with the peeps at Hello!.

On how she's feeling....
It’s overwhelmingly incredible. Every day there is something new. I think that by the journey I decided to go on, it is evident that I really wanted to be a mom, so I’m just really overjoyed and very happy that it worked out.

On how she kept it secret....
I have really good friends, y’know. 

On how she's finding motherhood....
It’s amazing and everyone has been so lovely and supportive.
