Sandra Bullock Adopts A Baby Boy!


Okay, in what has to be the WTF?! news of this new century thus far, People magazine has broken the best kept secret EVER that Sandra Bullock is the proud mother of a 3 1/2 month old baby boy named Louis Bardo that she started the adoption process of 4 YEARS AGO when she was still blissfully married to her cheating husband Jesse James. Sandra and Jesse brought home baby Louis before the Academy Awards earlier this year (and before news of his cheating scandal broke) and they managed to keep the secret all this time. Proud new mama Sandra and her adorable baby boy Louis are featured on the cover of the new issue of People magazine, wherein she confirms that she plans to move forward with her divorce from James and will raise Louis on her own as a single parent:

In public, Sandra Bullock has been through the best and worst of times this year – from winning her first Oscar to enduring the breakup of her marriage. In private, she was quietly keeping a joyful secret – his name is Louis, and he is her newborn son. “He’s just perfect, I can’t even describe him any other way,” Bullock reveals exclusively in the new issue of PEOPLE, announcing that she is the proud mother of Louis Bardo Bullock, a 3½-month-old boy, born in New Orleans. “It’s like he’s always been a part of our lives.” Bullock, 45, and husband Jesse James, 41, began the adoption process four years ago and brought Louis home in January but decided to keep the news to themselves until after the Oscars. Their close friends and family – including James’s children Sunny, 6, Jesse Jr., 12, and Chandler, 15 – were essential in keeping the adoption a secret. Then, just 10 days after the March 7 Oscars, Bullock and James separated following reports James had cheated. Bullock says she is now finalizing the adoption as a single parent.

In this age of the 24 hour news cycle, I am STUNNED that a secret like this can be kept underwraps. Not only has this adoption been 4 years in the making but I am amazed that no one knew that Sandra Bullock, who was probably the most sought after celeb in the world for the past few weeks, had a baby boy with her! This has to be the media coup of the century, for sure. I am so happy for Sandra and her new baby … Louis will surely be the joy that will allow her to love life again!

In regards to her slimeball soon-to-be ex-husband, he’s got something to say about the news that Bullock has decided to move forward and divorce him. Read what he has to say after the jump …

“My whole life has been full of hard decisions. The decision to let my wife end our marriage, and continue the adoption of Louis on her own, has been the hardest. The love I have for Louis cannot be put to words. Not having him around to love and to hold has left a huge hole in my heart. Sandy is the love of my life, but considering the pain and devastation I have caused her, it would be selfish to not let her go. Right now it is time for me to beat this addiction that has taken two of the things I love the most in life. I have always taken great pride in proving people wrong. That time has come once again to show that I am not what everyone says I am. I know in my heart that I can be the best father possible to my four children, and the mate Sandy deserves, and realize that this is an incredible mountain to climb. But I believe that the steps I have taken in the last 30 days are the foundation for making this happen. The lifelong commitment I am making is what being a real husband and father is all about. I ask that you please do not judge Sandy for the things I have done. She has done no wrong. She played no part in any of this. She has been an amazing wife, mother, and best friend, for the over 6 years we have been together.”

Not a single word of this seems genuine to me, not in the least. His entire message reads like spin that attempts to overshadow the heinous and disgusting things he did to his wife. I do not believe a WORD of it. In fact, I’m even more disgusted that he would choose to cheat on his wife — on his family — with the trashiest of “women” even as he and Sandra were trying to adopt a precious baby boy like Louis. What really pisses me off is James’s contention that he is hurt by his “decision” to let Sandra divorce him — what an a-hole jerk! His decision to cheat on her with multiple women is what he should be sorry for, I honestly loathe him right now. I long for the day that Jesse James is long forgotten, never spoken of again and hopefully falls off the face of the planet.

Sandra Bullock has an adorable new man in her life and I am certain that they will live a very long and very happy life together. My head is still spinning from all of this news … but I’m just so happy for Sandra and Louis. I know they will absolutely life happily ever after :)

So … what do y’all think about all of this?

UPDATE: TMZ has discovered that Sandra filed for divorce from Jesse in Austin, TX on April 23:

TMZ has learned Sandra Bullock filed for divorce in Travis County Court in Austin, Texas … and the reason it didn’t surface until now is because Sandra turned it into a puzzle. The case was filed under Sandra’s initials — backwards … B.A.S. Jesse James was also identified by his initials — J.J.G. Jesse’s middle name is Gregory. The document was filed April 23. As for grounds of divorce, the petition says “The marriage between Petitioner and Respondent has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities that destroys the legitimate ends of the marriage relationship and prevents any reasonable expectations of reconciliation.” According to the docs, obtained by TMZ “There is no child under eighteen years of age or otherwise entitled to support who was born or adopted of this marriage and none is expected.”

Damn! Well done, Sandra! She has managed to keep all of her secrets well concealed, good for her!

    Good for her! He is a waste of life and air on this earth! I hope he dies!

  • katie

    crazy! im in shock that she was able to keep this for so long. that child is so lucky to have her as a mom. i wish them the best :)

  • Denise

    I’m so happy for Sandra. She and her son are lucky to have each other.

  • jj

    I think it is amazing that she has adopted a little boy. I’m curious as to why it doesn’t take the Jolie-Pitts anywhere near the amount of time (4 years) that it took Sandra Bullock to adopt. Is this because the adoptions took place in the states? Interracial adoption. What is even more scary is given Jessie James racist activities, how would that child have been treated if they had stayed together? His father has admitted that he had fasination with the nazi culture from a young age. Who knows if his dad is trying to make a quick buck but its scary…

  • Kassss

    He wants to become the mate that Sandra deserves? Does he seriously think there is any chance of repairing a relationship that includes infidelity with multiple garbage cans and photographic props to Hitler? Wooooow.

    Imagine how overwhelmed she must be, but she’s handled this with such composure. She’s amazing!

  • Laure75

    This is AMAZING!
    Wow, Sandra… Can you adopt me too? I’m sure she will be the most incredible mother. CONGRATS!
    How on earth did she manage to keep it a secret?

  • Laure75

    I don’t understand. He says he is giving up the adoption of Louis on his side, after saying he loves him so much, and she was quoted also in the People article as saying she hoped he would be a father figure for her son, so… how does abandoning the adoption for him make sense? I don’t suppose, based on what she said, that she asked him to give up Louis ??!

  • Tricia

    Woo hoo! I am so happy for Sandra – she deserves all the joy and love she can find! That Louis is such a cutie!

  • Good for you Sandra! Leave him you deserve better! Dont bring that baby around Jesse its clear he is fascinated with the Nazi and Hitler! Even his own dad says so!

  • jess

    While I find his actions to be completely wrong and that he should suffer the consequences, I would never EVER say “I hope he dies”! Had he beaten her or killed her that would be a different situation (but I still don’t think I would flat out say “i hope he dies”). When did cheating become worthy of a death sentence?

  • Jordan

    I just am so unbelievably happy for her! Wow, what a blessing! This is karma at its finest :)

  • Alicia

    Wow, that 4 year adoption is blowing my mind. If that’s how long it takes for Sandra Bullock, it’s no wonder people adopt abroad.

    Also, that is a genuinely BEAUTIFUL baby. Such a great picture.

  • k

    She is a great mother. She is showing how much she loves her step children by not saying one negative thing about their father in public. Lucky, lucky children.

  • Kris

    So happy for her : )

  • Margie

    Best kept secret ever! I’m incredibly happy for Sandra and her new baby. As for the douche, this adoption has been 4 years in the making. He cheated on her all this time and could have jeopardized the adoption. He just needs to go. Ugh.

  • Ann

    His addiction to what? Being an a-hole?

  • Team Sandy all the way. Kudos to everyone for the concerpt of privacy. He looks adorable.

  • jessica

    fantastic! Surprised…if they adopted the Louis together, then he has legal right to see him. It’s BS to say that his heart is breaking that he can’t be with him and yet, he could but he’s, in ‘his mind’ doing the ‘right thing’ by letting them be. Hah! Sucks for his kids though that thought they’d have a half sib with them for good.

  • Holly

    “I ask that you please do not judge Sandy for the things I have done. She has done no wrong. She played no part in any of this.”

    UMMM I don’t think ANYONE was judging Sandy for anything that happened. That was ALL on you buddy! Jesse James really needs to stop making public statements like this that are completely delusional.

  • Stephani

    LETTING Sandra proceed with divorce, working to be the best MATE for her? He just doesn’t get it, at all.

  • congrats to Sandra and her sweet baby boy. so happy she has someone in her life who will help her heal and move on.

  • emily

    it might have taken 4 years because it usually takes that long for most people. Brad and Angie are definitly an exception to the rule!

  • Cristina

    two words: CLASS ACT

  • roxster

    I’m not surprised that it was under wraps for the past four years, because shes always been private. The past four months is what really surprises me. Shes been locked up in her house though since news of Jesse cheating broke, and I guess that move makes even more sense now. She was spending time with the baby, and shielding him from the insanity around her. I’m a little surprised she decided to come out on People and tlak about it, but my best guess is hr PR people are thinking the media have had their run with the scandal and now this is her way of taking control of whats in the print about it….her first post scandal interview isn’t about the scandal, its about something positive and wonderful for her.

  • SuziLee

    Awwww I’m sooo happy for her!! I hope that she finds happiness and peace that she deserves. I feel really bad for Jesse’s other kids though – she was probably the best part of their lives and now they’ve lost it because they’re dad is a complete & total douche.

  • nicole

    man when i read this..i was like ‘WTF’. i know shes private..but damn its hard to keep things like that a secret these days.
    congrats to her, im happy that shes movin on :)

  • carrie

    i think the people cover is a brilliant move for sandra. she’s handled this beautifully. she’ll come out on top and james can look forward to being that douche bag that effed it up. he and my ex can start a club!

  • g

    @roxster I know! When I read this story I said “WTF?!” and then… “THAT’S why she’s been holed up in her house!”

  • Tiffany

    Look at that mischievious little smile little Louie has! Awww! <3 And while I'm glad Sandra filed for divorce, I give Jesse small kudos for taking the blame wholely on himself and not saying anything negative about his soon-to-be ex-wife.

  • Tracy

    I’m so happy for Sandy. I’m just as amazed as everyone else that she was able to keep the adoption of her beautiful baby boy out of the tabloids. I think this little boy is a GOD send for Sandy, and he will help her to heal and to find love again with someone deserving of her love. Congrats Sandy!!!!

  • emily

    I still feel so so bad for Jessie’s poor kids. It seems like Sandra was the only stable person in their lives. I hope she stays in contact with them especially the littlest one Sunny.

  • M3

    Oh that Jesse is such a stand-up guy to LET her divorce him. A-hole! He should LET her kick him in the balls.
    And I’m over-the-moon happy to hear the news about the adoption and that she’ll be doing so as a single mom. Now she doesn’t have to worry too much about any warped values Jesse may have tried to teach him.

  • lstock

    He makes it sound like the only reason she is getting the divorce and adopting the baby on her own is because he LET her. What an egomaniacal jerk. I always thought she was way too good for him and it just proves I’m right.

  • LIsa


  • Luz

    Wow love it. Im happy for her. Shes gonna be an awesome Single Mom. You can see how happy she already is thru the pics. And WTH Jesse, “dont judge Sandy”???? We know she has “done no wrong”. You’ve done the wrong, so u only got urself to blame.

  • Christi

    I am so happy that Sandra, amongst all the high points and pitfalls, has been able to stay grounded and focus on what really matters – her beautiful new son. I’m glad she was able to keep this a secret. It’s definitely something she could seek solitude and comfort in through the craziness that consumed her life since January. KUDOS!

  • Chivonne

    I happened to be flipping thru the shows this morning and saw this on The View. I’m so happy for her and so amazed at how quiet it was kept!
    I love adoptions. There are so many deserving kids and yeah (:

  • toast

    As they say with the bad comes the good. I wish her all the love and happiness. I think she will make a superb mother.

  • Mariah

    AHHH! I LOVE THIS NEWS! This totally brightened up my entire, dreary day!! Sandra will make a fantastic mother. Louis is such a lucky little boy to have a mother like Sandra.

  • Kendra

    Wooot all around!! She’s glowing with happiness in that picture..Just lovely..I’m so glad she’s totally done with Jesse James..She’s such a strong woman..I knew she wouldn’t take his crap..LOVE HER!!

  • Natasha

    I’m surprised Jesse’s kids kept such a secret since kids tend to blab about something that big. Jesse really messed things up for them. With that said, Congrats Sandy!

  • GiGi

    That baby is sooo cute! Sandra Bullock deserves this happiness, and it’s great that she was able to keep the news private and disclose it on her own terms.

  • Manda

    Good for Sandra for being able to keep the adoption a secret! Also, good for her for leaving that slim-ball of a husband. It is so sick that he calls Sandra the love of his life! If you loved her, you wouldn’t have cheated. He says he is “letting her go” but I have a feeling she was already “gone” the minute she found out he cheated.

  • maribella

    i love that she chose to help a child here. i think celebrities tend to forget that there are a lot of needy children right here, too.

    also, i am glad jesse james said she “played no part in any of this” because i was seriously wondering if she was unaware that her spouse was a hilter reincarnate.

  • Liz

    Usually an adoption does take that long. My cousin adopted a boy in the US, it took them about 3.5 yrs and a good friend adopted from oversea. My friends are finally having their son this week after 2 yrs. Theirs are a bit faster since the kid isn’t an infant.
    Anyway, very happy about Sandra’s new little man. :)

  • Jerseyhater

    Trent, you really are a judgemental, self-righteous little shit.

  • Jenn

    “Not a single word of this seems genuine to me, not in the least. His entire message reads like spin that attempts to overshadow the heinous and disgusting things he did to his wife”

    I completely agree.

  • Irma

    @Jerseyhater, eff off.
