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!
