Since announcing her son's adoption March 14, Charlize Theron has kept little Jackson out of the public eye -- until now!

The 36-year-old Oscar winner showed off her pride and joy while walking through the Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris, France Tuesday. It's the first time her son has been photographed.

"She has always wanted to be a mom," a Theron source told Us Weekly in March. "She is glad to be able to do it on her own now and is so happy to be a mom.

Speaking to Vogue UK's May issue, Theron gushed that Jackson is "incredible" and "the coolest kid ever."

"I've always been very honest in saying I wanted a family," the never-married Young Adult star said. "I've always known I wanted a family. I don't think my mom could wait anymore!"

Theron hopes the relationship she creates with her son mirrors the one she has with her mom, Gerda.

"[I hope] to be like my mom. Fair, tough, loving and supportive. My mom has made it possible for me to be who I am. Our family is everything," she told the magazine. "Her greatest skill was encouraging me to find my own person and own independence."

Theron -- who hasn't been in a serious relationship since ending her nine-year partnership with Stuart Townsend in 2010 -- next appears in June 1's Snow White and the Huntsman
