Yesterday, a post that was thought to be written by Sandra Bullock was widely shared by over half a million people on Facebook. Except now it’s been revealed that the heartfelt story – which resonated with thousands across social media – was a fake.
The post, which was published by fan page Sandra Bullock Online which is not officially affiliated with the actress, suggested that Bullock was tired of being labelled as an ‘Adoptive Mother’.
The 50-year-old adopted her son Louis in 2010. He is now five years old. But that doesn’t make her different to other parents.
The post - which saw thousands of fan share their own heartfelt stories of adoption - included a plea asking others to stop labelling the Oscar winning actress something that she's not. Because, like all adoptive mothers, she's just a mum.
