Because of the adoption journey that she decided to follow, she said that it's evident that she really wanted to be a mom, and she is "really overjoyed and very happy that it all worked out."

So how did she keep it a secret? Charlize credited her "really good friends", saying, "It's not me. It's who you decide to tell -- and then it's them not telling."

When asked by co-star Michael, "Why is everyone congratulating you?" Charlize joked, "Haven't you heard? I got a new puppy."
