Sandra Bullock Adopts Son, Files For Divorce

Sandra Bullock has had a roller-coaster ride of a year thus far. The actress earned her first Oscar for her role in The Blind Side, and soon after learned of husband Jesse James’ infidelity, changing forever their relationship and the close relationship she shared with his three children, Sunny, 6, Jesse Jr., 12, and Chandler, 15.

The 45-year-old actress has revealed to PEOPLE that she has indeed filed for divorce from James, and introduced the world to her best kept secret, a son that she adopted in January! New Orleans-born, Louis Bardo Bullock, is now 3½-months-old, and Bullock, who brought home baby Louis in January gushed of her son,

He’s just perfect, I can’t even describe him any other way. It’s like he’s always been a part of our lives.”

Bullock also revealed that she and James, 41, began the adoption process four years ago, the first year of their marriage.

    I hope she is happy. What a beautiful baby. I am also surprised she managed to keep that under wraps.

    Wow!!! That’s interesting that she has decided to adopt a US born African -American child and it’s revealed that Jesse has Nazi ties. Perhaps the “Blindside” had more of an impact on her than we thought.
    Her Oscar wothy role has really inspired her…Congrats to the Real woman she portrayed.

    can’t believe she managed to keep it a secret, most celebs IE Angeline Jolie have a family member that blabs.

    Congratulations to Sandra! She kept the adoption in secret for a long time. Louis is a really beautiful baby boy and will have a really good and loving mother in Sandra Bullock. After everything Sandra has gone through lately – Jesse James´ scandalous cheating episode and all that – adopting this cute little boy is the best thing that has happened to her. Now she has someone to love and take care of. Wonder if Sandra will still stay in contact with Jesse´s three kids. She and Sunny (Jesse´s youngest daughter) seemed to become very close. Hopefully Sandra will still play a big part in that adorable girl´s life no matter what happened between Jesse and Sandra.

    I cannot believe the adoption agency let things go through considering their issues. I guess money truly does talk. There are stable two-parent homes all over this country just dying for a child. The agency thought Hollywood, a broken home, and a media circus were a good choice? I’m sorry, but I don’t think this is a great story at all. I’m glad she’s given him the boot, don’t get me wrong. I’m just not sure this is right timing for a baby to enter the picture. Just my two cents.

    I find Sandra’s attitude a beautiful act. Adoption is beautiful.
    But the boy won’t ever live a normal life.

    Adoption is always fast and without complications for the rich & famous. That’s a natural thing in life.

    wow! what a shocker! congratulations sandra!!! that is so wonderful.@anon 1:45 – so because her husband cheated on her she’s not worthy of parenting? that’s crazy logic. and clearly she kept the adoption under wraps to keep him out of the media. she seems very level headed and will most likely be the type to keep him out of the spotlight. just cuz she’s a celeb doesn’t mean she shouldn’t parent.

    @carey – i’d hardly say 4 yrs was fast and w/o complications.

    Thats so wonderful, she looks amazingly happy with him and he’s an absolute doll.. it’s great to see her finding something wonderful in her life right now with everything else thats happened. She comes off as a strong person and obviously she is, she moved on past her husband and now has a precious little one. It’s just wonderful, bless the both!!
