Stunning news today from the Oscar winner: She tells People magazine that since January she has been the proud adoptive mother of a three-and-a-half-month-old baby boy, Louis (born in New Orleans and named after Louis Armstrong). The new issue of People has an exclusive interview and photos.
Bullock says that she and husband Jesse James began the adoption process four years ago and brought the baby home early this year; they kept the news quiet until after the awards-season madness died down. But shortly after Bullock won the Oscar, tales of James’s alleged infidelities hit the tabloids. Now the actress, who also reveals that she has filed for divorce ("I’m sad and I’m scared," she tells People about that decision), will be finalizing the adoption as a single parent. But, she adds, "The father I have known Jesse to be. . . is one that I hope Louis can experience one day." "There’s no rancor" between them, People‘s managing editor said on the Today Show. "She’s taking it day by day."
