I must have stepped away from my computer for a few seconds and missed the news that Sandra Bullock‘s ex, Jesse James, is engaged to Kat Von D and will remarry as soon as next month.
Now it appears that Sandra has the heartbreaking task of preparing her 6-year-old stepdaughter Sunny, Jesse’s daughter from a previous relationship, for the arrival of a third mom in her life.
“Sandra loves Sunny with all her heart and will always be in her life. However, she also knows that [Sunny] will have a new mommy soon and will do whatever she needs to do to make sure Jesse’s new wife and Sunny have a great relationship even if that means taking a step away,” a friend of the Blind Side actress says.
While Sandra and Jesse were still married, the actress was instrumental in helping Jesse gain full custody of Sunny. The child’s mom, former porn star Janine Lindemulder, was jailed for tax evasion and Sandra told the court she considered Sunny to be her own daughter and she would be well cared for.
“When Jesse was in rehab it was Sandy who was a mother to his little girl. Despite what Jesse did, Sandra never walked away from Sunny,” a source says. “She has given that sweet child nothing but love. As difficult as this will be, once again Sandra will prove what a lady she is.”
