Sandra Bullock Adopts A Little Girl & Makes Her "Diverse" Family Even Bigger & More Beautiful — PHOTO
In news that no one saw coming, Sandra Bullock has adopted a little girl, and none of us had any idea this was even happening. The reveal comes in the latest issue of People magazine, which features Bullock posing on the cover with her son Louis and her newly adopted 3-year-old girl Laila. Laila (pronounced "Lila," according to People) had been in foster care in Louisiana when Bullock adopted her, and, according to the 51-year-old actress, "When I look at Laila, there’s no doubt in my mind that she was supposed to be here." Her first child, 5-year-old Louis, was also adopted, but Bullock had been keeping her intention of adopting Laila a secret from the general public, even denying a forthcoming adoption at an Our Brand Is Crisis junket in October 2015. Sneaky, sneaky, Bullock.
Even more beautiful is how Bullock describes her family in her cover interview: “My family is blended and diverse, nutty, and loving and understanding. That’s a family.” And she's completely correct. A family can mean so many different things, represent so many different dynamics, and so many diverse experiences, that the conventional definition of a family has been redefined in the best kind of way. And Bullock's family is, itself, a perfect example of that, and they couldn't be happier and stronger for that fact. Just look how pleased she is to be taking this gorgeous picture with her two children.
Congratulations to Sandra Bullock for adding another bundle of joy to her family, and to Laila and Louis, who basically have one of the greatest mothers it's possible to have in Hollywood.
