Sandra Bullock adoption rumors were the only thing missing in the last month. The tabloids didn’t guess that a Sandra Bullock adoption was in the works, although they did speculate that she was pregnant. They came close, but didn’t quite get the whole truth, in a rare detail that they missed from the Jesse James scandal. For all that was uncovered in the Bullock-James drama, and for all the mistresses that came forward, the Oscar winner somehow kept one giant detail away from the media. As such, she got to reveal the Sandra Bullock adoption plans – and her new baby – on her own terms in a People Magazine cover story.
Ever since Jesse James’ affairs were uncovered, Bullock had stayed relatively quiet on the matter. Her silence and pulling out of public appearances spoke for itself, so anticipation was high for when she would come forward. Yet when she did emerge on the People Magazine cover, with her soon-to-be adopted son, no one saw it coming.
According to People, Sandra Bullock’s adoption plans were years in the making, as she and James started the process four years ago. They were finally given a newborn child from New Orleans in January, who is now named Louis Bardo Bullock. The original plan was to announce Louis’s existence to the world after the Oscars, until James’ affairs blind-sided all else.
If not for Michelle Bombshell McGee and others, the Sandra Bullock adoption news would have been the big story after the Oscars – and been a much more heartwarming follow up. Instead, the news comes after weeks of sordid drama that overshadowed Bullock’s Oscar win. But now that Louis has been revealed, the light at the end of the tunnel may be ahead.
Along with the Sandra Bullock adoption shocker, she told People that she has officially filed for divorce from James. The move was expected for weeks, but now it comes with the knowledge that she will raise Louis as a single parent.
James himself got to talk to People as well, sharing that there is a “huge hole in my heart” without Louis. However, he conceded that it would be ‘selfish’ not to let Bullock go, and claims he is now focused on beating his ‘addiction.’
After James’ affairs dominated the tabloids, it didn’t look like anything else could top it. If there was, the press would have likely found out at the peak of the scandal – but that was not the case. But with this, the Sandra Bullock adoption news has become the silver lining of the scandal. What’s more, since she got to reveal Louis herself, on her own terms, she finally got to take control of the story after all this time.
