Sandra Bullock: I'm Getting Divorced, But Also Here is a Baby!
Well, this wasn't quite the coming-out story we were expecting on the cover of People, but it'll do. Sandra Bullock, who's had some wildly extreme reversals of fortune as of late, actually had one more that she never disclosed: in January, she adopted a baby and kept it secret. And apparently her ex Jesse James never texted it to Bombshell McGee, because that secret held like a motherf****r! Wait, who? Jesse James? Why are you talking about him when I have this new baby?
OK, I threw a link to People, but honestly, E! does a way better job of summarizing this enormous cover story. Take it away, guys!
The timing--smack in the middle of awards season--was less than ideal, so the family agreed to keep [3½ months old Louis Bardo Bullock] out of the headlines until after Bullock picked up her haul of statuettes.
"I did not want him brought into a world that would not have been too sincere to him as I wanted," she claims. "I wanted to be alone with him as long as I could, then we had to tell his story."
But it turns out Bullock will be raising Louis alone, she also confessed. She'll be finalizing the adoption as a single parent.
After the shocking revelation that her husband had been cheating on her, Bullock took her son and left the house as quickly as possible, "before the vultures [descended]."
"Yes, I have filed for divorce," she says. "I am sad and I am scared."
James will remain in Louis' life, however.
"I really don't know how our paths will intersect in the future, but the father I have known Jesse to be...is one that I hope Louis can experience one day, no matter how Jesse and I go on with our lives," she admits.
