Sandra Bullock’s kids
Sandra Bullock adopted her first child, Louis, in 2010 from New Orleans with her then-husband, Jesse James. At the time it had been a tumultuous period for the actress, who discovered her husband’s infidelity in the middle of the couple’s adoption process.
The two divorced, and Bullock became a single parent to Louis, who is now 11 years old. She has steadfastly maintained his privacy.
In 2015, the A-list actor revealed that she also adopted a daughter, three-year-old Laila (pronounced Lila). Bullock had fostered the young girl before finalising the adoption.
