Sandra Bullock adopts a boy; People magazine has the exclusive!!

In public, Sandra Bullock has been through the best and worst of times this year – from winning her first Oscar to enduring the breakup of her marriage. In private, she was quietly keeping a joyful secret – his name is Louis, and he is her newborn son.

Bullock reveals exclusively in the new issue of PEOPLE that she is the proud mother of Louis Bardo Bullock, a 3½-month-old boy, born in New Orleans. "It's like he's always been a part of our lives," Bullock, 45, says. She and husband Jesse James, 41, began the adoption process four years ago and brought Louis home in January but decided to keep the news to themselves until after the Oscars. Their close friends and family – including James's children Sunny, 6, Jesse Jr., 12, and Chandler, 15 – were essential in keeping the adoption a secret.

Then, just 10 days after the March 7 Oscars, Bullock and James separated following reports James had cheated. Bullock says she is now adopting as a single parent.

I'm a big fan of Sandra Bullock. You can tell she is such a beautiful woman, inside and out. She has such a great inner spirit and it comes out in interviews. She is such a great actress. Jesse blew it because you can tell she is a classy lady and she is such a happy go-lucky person and very funny.

Congratulations on the adoption Sandra. Such happy news. He is so cute and I love his name! The tough times are hard but it was all meant to be so just ride it out and cherish the good times Sandy! We love you and are wishing you only the best. You have no idea how much happiness Louie is going to bring you as the years go by. Being a mother is the best thing that could have ever happened to you. I hope you adopt more! Only brighter days ahead!

She was just a meal ticket for him. Congratulations on her adoption of a child.

Thank GOD Sandra Bullock had the foresight to NOT ADOPT Jessie James children he fathered with a former stripper or Sandra Bullock would be on the hook for huge child support settlements to Jessie James and his children.

Sandra Bullocks single parent adoption should help Sandra Bullock place closure on Jessie James children and start fresh with her own.

A near clean break for Sandra Bullock, good for her, you go girl!!!

DUMBASS!
