Us Weekly: Sandra Bullock’s “new life as a mom”


Us Weekly is running a nice cover story this week about Sandra Bullock’s “new life as a mom”. I think she’s been a mom for a while, not just to her son Louis, but to her step-kids with Jesse James, but whatever. “New life” et cetera. Us Weekly doesn’t have an interview with Sandra or anything, they just got “exclusive” photos of Sandra and Louis hanging out in Texas. I saw the video of this on Entertainment Tonight a few days ago, and it was really cute. It was just Sandra and Louis chilling out, running errands, and while she was in one store, a guy asked if he could hold Louis, and Sandra passes him over.

Call him Mr. Congeniality: it’s Louis Bardo Bullock!

After months of secrecy, Sandra Bullock brought her four-month-old son out in public earlier in May: over Mother’s Day weekend in New Orleans, and several days later in Austin, Texas, as exclusive new photos in the latest Us Weekly reveal.

In Austin (where she owns a home) on May 14, Bullock was “showing the baby off to just random people in stores,” a fellow shopper tells Us. “Sandra was in a really happy mood.”

Bullock, 45, was “such a natural with [Louis] and so easygoing and chill,” local store owner Jennifer Mazuelos says. “He’s such a big boy!”

After a devastating couple months — the revelation of husband Jesse James’ multiple affairs and a late-April divorce filing — the Oscar-winner is finally settling into full-time motherhood.

“Sandra is loving it!” a pal tells Us.

Adds another: “Having Louis around is perfect therapy for what she went through with Jesse.”

While Bullock never considered adopting alone prior to her shocking split, her unexpected single parenthood has been “an extraordinary lesson for her,” a friend says.

To read about how Jesse James’ relationship with Louis is “still evolving,” whether Bullock may adopt additional kids, her support system, and Bullock’s connection to James’ three children, pick up the new Us Weekly, out now!

[From Us Weekly]

I’m still wondering about Sandra and Jesse, honestly. I’ve read from various sources that Jesse was at Sandra and Louis’s People Magazine photo shoot. I’ve also read that Jesse is still visiting Sandra and Louis. In Touch Weekly is running a story this week – and I’m only judging this from the cover – about Sandra and Jesse’s “secret reunion”. Would Sandra take him back? Or is she just trying to be a graceful, mature adult and still treat her estranged husband with respect? I don’t know.

Sandra Bullock Very Disappointed With Paps!

    She couldn’t possibly be stupid enough to take that disease-ridden turd back. Not just because of the awful things he’s done to her but because it would be absolute career suicide (I know, that’s probably not at the top of her list anyway) to take him back. He’s cheated a dozen times, who’d trust him again? I think she’s just proving again that she’s the classy one, letting him be a part of Louis’ life like she promised and they’re working out something about the other kids.

    If they want a fast, amicable divorce, the best way is to just get along and get it over.

    I saw a pic of her in New Orleans last week(?) and she looked awful. She’s so thin, you can see all of the bones in her chest. :(

  2. Whatever says:

    I have read that the photo shoot with the baby happened two days before she got the phone call from the reporter about Jesse’s hos. So, it would make sense that he was there, since they were still together. The rest is pure speculation.

    That baby is just too cute.

  4. EMV says:

    Louis is sooooooo adorable! And what a great name too.

  5. bite me says:

    jesse and sandra will probably get back together

  6. Taya says:

    Sandra and Jesse were never apart. This whole divorce drama is just a PC stunt and when the dust settles there will be a miraculous reunion between the two.

  7. zen says:

    I highly doubt she’ll ever take him back. Im sure they keep in contact for the sake of the kids.

  8. Missfit says:

    It’s hard to be around the ex after he’s hurt you and you still have strong feelings for them, no matter what, even if they are wrong and you hate them. So if she has to be around him, I hope she’s strong enough to keep a good head on her shoulders and not fall for his “charms” and buttered up ways. I know she still has to be moping inside.

  9. YT says:

    If she maintains contact with her stepchildren, and they considered Louis their brother for 3-1/2 months, she cannot do so without some sort of contact with their father. It will be interesting to see how this sad situation plays out.

  10. Tess says:

    This story’s devolving into one big yawn.

    They’re just churning up a bunch of PC PR.

  11. lway says:

    I don’t think she’ll take Jesse back, but she does seem like the type of person who won’t treat other people badly regardless of what was done to her ……. ah, Maturity (thank you Kaiser)

    Also – she said she wanted him to be a part of Louis’ life.

    I am proud of her for keeping herself composed through all this.

  12. Maritza says:

    Wow, that baby’s got a full head of hair, he is so cute! I hope she adopts more babies, she seems to love being a mother. I do hope she never goes back to Jessie,she deserves someone much better.

  13. lucy2 says:

    I don’t think she’ll take him back. From the People article, I kind of get the impression that after the anger and hurt, she accepted what happened and is moving on, divorcing, etc for her own sake, but still cares about him and the family and wants it to be amicable. Their marriage is over, but the family is not, if that makes any sense.
    I have to give her credit for how well she’s handled it. I don’t think I could have done so.

    “She couldn’t possibly be stupid enough to take that disease-ridden turd back.”

    Holy h*ll, that tickled my funny bone so badly I almost aspirated my cough drop.

  15. Tessa says:

    Jesse was at the People photo shoot because it was done days BEFORE the news broke about the affairs. There is will be no reconciliation.

  16. Aspen says:

    I hate to quote “Clueless,” but there is a great line in that movie:

    “You divorce wives…not children.”

    It’s true. She divorced him, but she was helping raise his kids, and they adopted this little boy together (though he dropped out of it when all this came out).

    No matter what she chooses, I’m sure she’ll do it in the best interest of her family and the kids.

    I won’t stop watching her movies whatever she decides because I know that every person, every marriage, and every family is different. I also know that we don’t have any idea what the reality behind all the sensational reports actually is.

    So. I hope everyone stays friendly and I just wish her and the children involved peace and happiness. As for the “disease-ridden turd,” (awesome line…best thing I’ve read all day) I don’t really care if he finds happiness or not.

  17. Lola says:

    jesus h people that’s HER Business. Who the hell are you to decide she’s stupid for “taking him back.”

    This culture is way out of control with what right it thinks it has to tell people how to live. Mind your own lives for a change.

  18. Jeri says:

    Wasn’t the People shoot right after the Oscars, before the split. I don’t think she’ll take him back but she might try to let him see Louis.
