Sandra Bullock has stayed out of the public eye since her five-year marriage to Jesse James imploded in March and we all learned what a Bombshell McGee is. Now Sandra is speaking for the first time since Jesse's affairs came to light, and in the new issue of People, she says she has filed for divorce from Jesse. And in a huge surprise, Sandra also announced that she adopted a baby boy named Louis in January. Wow. When the lady wants to change the subject, she changes the subject all right.
Sandra told People that she and Jesse began the adoption process four years ago and finally brought home Louis, who's now three and a half months old and was born in New Orleans, in January. With the help of family and friends they kept him a secret—no small challenge, since both Sandra and Jesse have been followed by paparazzi nonstop this year, even before his infidelities were revealed. "He's just perfect, I can't even describe him any other way," Sandra told People. "All I said when I met him was, 'Oh, there you are.' It's like he's always been a part of our lives." Adoption Makes You A Family
Louis's full name is Louis Bardo Bullock (not James. Hmm.) and Sandra says they'd decided to keep the news of his adoption to themselves until after the Oscars. But then the Age of Skanks began, and 10 days after Sandra won Best Actress for The Blind Side, she and Jesse separated. Which obviously made introducing the baby both awkward and unpleasant for everyone. Sandra Bullock & Jesse James' Love Timeline
"People that I had worked with for years couldn't understand why I wouldn't let them into my house for (Oscar ceremony gown) fittings," Sandra said about the process of keeping Louis a secret (the baby is named after Louis Armstrong, because Sandra loves the song "What a Wonderful World." We find that immensely hopeful and sweet). Louis's relationship with Jesse going forward is unclear; Sandra said to People, "I will be adopting as a single parent. Anything else will be taken day by day." But she added, "I really don't know how our paths will intersect in the future, but the father I have known Jesse to be with all the kids is one that I hope Louis can experience one day, no matter how Jesse and I go on with our lives."
