It’s been a hard couple of months for Sandra Bullock. After winning her first Oscar she was brought back down to earth with a resounding thud after revelations her husband, Jesse James, engaged in a string of affairs.
Tattoo model Michelle ‘Bombshell’ McGee was the first woman to go public. Just 10 days after Sandra won the Best Actress Oscar Michelle revealed she had an 11-month affair with Jesse.
But all the while Sandra has been hiding a huge secret. The 45-year-old actress is the mother of three-month-old Louis Bardo Bullock – whom she adopted in January.
Speaking about her son, who has been living with her since January, Sandra told People magazine: “It’s like he’s always been a part of our lives. He’s perfect, I can’t even describe him in any other way.”
Louis is named after late singer Louis Armstrong, who was born in New Orleans, because Sandra had his hit ‘What a Wonderful World’ in her head when she first laid eyes on him.
While Sandra has posed on the front of People magazine with her son looking as happy as ever, the ‘Blind Side’ star has started divorce proceedings. “I’m sad and I’m scared,” she said when talking about the legal separation.
Although Sandra and Jesse started the adoption process four years ago together, the Hollywood beauty will now be the sole guardian of Louis – who was born in New Orleans.
A source said: "It's over between Sandra and Jesse. For a while, it looked like she was going to forgive him, but not now. Way too much has happened and after spending time alone, Sandra has realised that she deserves better. It's not going to be easy but she's an amazingly strong lady."
"Maybe I needed this to happen so I could be the best mother to Louis," Sandra added. "We wouldn't know the sweet moments in life unless we had the pain. And painfully, I'm going to miss so much."
What a nice ending to a sad chapter in Sandra’s life. Do you agree?
