Charlize Theron has shared a sweet video of her daughters. The South African actor is seen jumping into the sea with her children in an envy-inducing holiday video.

The actor's daughters, Jackson and August, are seldom seen as Charlize keeps her family life private for the most part. 

But in her latest post, which she captions, "Me and my girls 4 life" we get a glimpse of their dreamy holiday as the trio jump into the ocean holding hands.

Not only were fans delighted by the cute family video, taken on their fabulous Greek getaway; Charlize's famous buddies piped up in the comments too. "Yeah, baby. Get it. Love," said Chelsea Handler.

And the big old leap was pretty accurately described as, "EPIC!!" by the one and only Reese Witherspoon.

New dad and Queer Eye icon Tan France echoed his support saying, "LOVE this so much!"

Supermodel Helena Christensen identified why this video is extra adorable when she said, "Love how you held hands all the way down." and Michelle Pfeiffer simply said, "Love this so much 🙌❤️"

For superstars Chloe Moretz, Kate Beckinsale, January Jones and Julianne Moore however; it was all about emojis as they commented with more love hearts than you could shake a stick at.

That's a LOT of a-list pals!


Charlize's daughters, who she adopted in 2012 and 2015 respectively, are clearly the apples of her eye and in 2020 she shared an intimate photo of the trio to celebrate National Daughters' Day. 

Her heartfelt message read, "My heart belongs to these two beautiful powerhouses. I will never be the same."

Despite keeping relatively schtum about her children and family life, Charlize spoke openly in support and celebration of her daughter Jackson who is transgender. 

In a conversation with Pride Source she discussed the importance of respecting Jackson's gender identity, explaining that people misgendering her, "really hurt her feelings."

 She said, "I feel like as her mother, for me, it was important to let the world know that I would appreciate it if they would use the right pronouns for her."
