Charlize Theron ready to have a baby

Charlize Theron wants to have a baby.

The 36-year-old actress is keen to start a family and doesn't want to wait any longer to become a mother.

Charlize - who is currently single after separating from actor Ryan Reynolds earlier this month after a brief two-month romance - told Germany's In Touch magazine: "I want a baby. If it would happen tomorrow I would still be very happy about it."

Charlize is also open to the idea of adopting a child and thinks she good provide a wonderful home to a disadvantaged youngster.

When asked if she would consider adoption, she said: "Why not? I'm open to everything in life."

The Oscar winner also praised her own mother Gerda - who shot Charlize's abusive father Charlie when he was 21 in an act of self-defence - for the way she raised her and the values she instilled in her.

She said: "My mum raised me never to be a victim and to take responsibility for my actions."
