Sandra Bullock has two adopted children, Louis Bardo and Laila, whom she shares with her boyfriend Bryan Randall.
On Red Table Talk in December, 55-year-old actress Jada Pinkett Smith opened up about her parenting journey and revealed that she had always wanted to adopt children.
Sandra Bullock is an acclaimed actress who has starred in films of all genres. In 2009, she won an Academy Award for her role in The Blind Side and went on to receive Entertainment Weekly’s Entertainer of the Year titles twice between 2009 and 2013.
At the age of 21, she relocated to New York City from Nurnberg, West Germany after spending most of her childhood there. She quickly achieved success with her performance in Off-Broadway play No Time Flat and later appeared in several films.
At the start of her career, she struggled to garner much attention. Her first roles consisted of bit parts in television and B-movies; however, in 1992 she finally got noticed when co-starring alongside Keanu Reeves in the teen comedy Love Potion No. 9, which catapulted her into Hollywood stardom.
Over the following few years, she made a name for herself with big-budget movies like While You Were Sleeping and The Proposal; both became hits.
She made a name for herself with the action-packed film Crash, for which she won an Oscar and Golden Globe. Additionally, she starred as the lead actress in the sci-fi thriller Gravity, earning another nomination at the Oscars.
Throughout her career, she has demonstrated a dedication to philanthropy and humanitarian causes. She has donated millions of dollars to charitable organizations and causes. Furthermore, she served on the boards of both the American Red Cross and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles; plus, she joined other prestigious boards like National Alliance on Mental Health.
In 2004, Bullock married TV host Jesse James. Their union only lasted six years before filing for divorce in 2010 due to tabloid reports of James’ infidelity with Bullock.
Since then, Bullock has been in a relationship with photographer Bryan Randall and adopted a daughter from a Louisiana foster home. Additionally, her family has shown their support for the United States Olympic team.
Louis Bardo Bullock
Sandra Bullock is one of Hollywood’s most admired and successful actresses, having starred as the lead in numerous hit films such as The Proposal, Gravity, The Blind Side (Oscar winning performance), and The Lost City, to name a few.
She is also the mother to two adopted children, Louis Bardo Bullock and Laila Bullock Sandra. Her kids are very special to her, and she always takes great care in raising them.
According to her, being a parent is the most important thing in life. She strives to ensure her kids’ happiness and health, doing her best to prevent any diseases from affecting them.
The actress has never shied away from the media, but prefers to keep her family life private and away from the spotlight. Furthermore, as her son Louis Bardo Bullock is still young, she has chosen to shield him from public eye too.
In an interview with People magazine, actress Megan Follows opened up about her life as a parent. She believes that having adopted children Louis and Laila has significantly enriched her experiences.
She said she has never regretted her decision to adopt. As a proud mom, she loves her children more than anything in the world.
But she admits it was challenging for her to adopt as she had to prove she could be a responsible parent. After going through an extensive adoption process that included multiple interviews and background checks, the adoption was finally completed.
Louis Bardo Bullock has grown up to be a contented child with an intense bond with his mother. Now 12 years old, he celebrates his birthday annually in January with both his parents and their boyfriend Bryan Randall who co-parents him; the three spend a lot of time together.
