Sandra Bullock’s decision to adopt a baby didn’t spring from her separation from Jesse James, as many of you have speculated. Turns out she has been broody all this time.
When she was a guest on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in November, she praised people who have decided to adopt. “Just because a child didn’t come from inside your body, doesn’t mean it’s not your child,” Sandra said. “It just arrived [from] somewhere else. The thing that affected me the most profoundly was: When people think of adopting a child—oh I want a brand new little baby—there are so many children that are just dying and waiting to be loved and give you back love a thousand times more than what you can ever give them.”
Sandra and her husband Jesse James began the adoption process about four years ago. They brought home the 3½-month old baby named Louis Bardo in January, but Sandra’s family and close friends decided to keep the adoption under wraps until after the Oscars.
Unfortunately, things didn’t go according to plan. The couple wasn’t able to announce the baby after Sandra’s March 10 Oscar win, because Jesse’s cheating scandals surfaced. The two are now separated, and Sandra is filing for divorce.
The good news is: Sandra has motherhood to look forward to. In a bid to move on from the scandals, Sandra is finalizing the adoption as a single mom.
We wish you all the best, Sandy!
