Charlize Theron says she’s not actually a single mom to new son Jackson—because she has help from her dogs. Yesterday on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, Theron explained that her two rescue dogs immediately took to Jackson after she adopted him in March, People reports. "It was the most beautiful thing I've ever witnessed," she says. "From the moment this baby came into our home, those two dogs have never been more in love."

"People keep saying, 'Oh you're a single mom,' and I'm like, 'Actually, I'm not. I got two boys helping me out.' It's incredible," she adds. Her terrier mutt, Berkley, likes to steal Jackson’s pacifiers, while pit bull Blue "woke up with me for every feed, for every change, and whenever the baby would cry the pit would start crying," she says. "He'll do anything for that baby." (More Charlize Theron stories.)
