In a world-exclusive interview with People, superstar Sandra Bullock has revealed that she recently became a mom. No, the 45-year-old Oscar winner didn’t somehow hide a pregnancy from the prying eyes of the public for the last nine months. Her baby boy, Louis Bardo Bullock, is adopted from New Orleans.
Now 3 1/2 months old, Louis is the result of a four-year-long process by Bullock and her cheating husband, Jesse James. The couple brought home the baby in January, but planned to keep him a secret until after the Oscars. Since then, of course, Bullock has been in the news non-stop dealing with James’ several affairs (that we know about). The two separated, and in yet another “you-go-girl” moment, Bullock has filed for divorce.
Does that mean the baby goes back? No way. Bullock revealed to People that she is now finishing the adoption as a single parent.
The secret, which is the biggest we’ve seen in Hollywood for quite some time, was a carefully orchestrated plan that relied not only on trusting close friend and family members not to go to the press, but also James’ three children (Sunny, 6, Jesse Jr., 12, and Chandler, 15) not to blab the secret. That had to be tough for a six-year-old.
Says Bullock, “”He’s just perfect, I can’t even describe him any other way.”
