Charlize Theron and Keanu Reeves' friendship has reportedly intensified in recent months.

The pair starred together in the 2001 movie Sweet November and have been firm friends for some time. US publication In Touch reports that the twosome's relationship has risen to another level now that Charlize has become a mother to adopted son Jackson.

"They were friends with benefits in the past," the friend told the publication. "But now it's something more."

Charlize is raising Jackson as a single mother but apparently wants to have involvement from the most important men in her life.

"[Keanu] babysits and brings toys when he visits Charlize and Jackson," the source added to the magazine. "He even built the crib and changes diapers!"

The Hollywood actress gushed about her new family addition earlier this month. Charlize revealed that baby Jackson is a blessing in her life.

"I've always been very honest in saying I wanted a family. I've always known I wanted a family," she said. "I don't think my mom could wait any more! Jackson is incredible, the greatest gift. He is the coolest kid ever.

"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."
