The Academy Award winner allegedly adopted August, an African-American girl, in July.

The momentous occasion follows heartache for the Monster star, who had called off her engagement to Sean Penn, 55 around a month earlier.

Us Weekly alleged that Charlize called off the engagement after she and Sean spent time together in Europe in May.

The pair have known each other for decades, but only went public with their romance in December 2013.

A year into their relationship, Us claimed they had gotten secretly engaged during a trip to Paris. An engagement ring was never seen, however, and the two never confirmed the reports.

The two recently reunited however, to re-shoot scenes for their film, The Last Face, in South Africa. 

Charlize was previously in a nine-year relationship with Irish actor Stuart Townsend.

Sean was married to Madonna from 1985 to 1989 and Robin Wright from 1996 to 2010.
