Louis Bardo Bullock is known for being the son of the Speed actor, Sandra Bullock.
Sandra has been raising her son, Louis since 2010. She adopted him after separating from her former partner, Jesse James. He has a younger sister, Laila Bullock.
Let’s get to know more about him!
Louis Bullock’s Adoption
Sandra Bullock adopted her eldest child, Louis Bardo Bullock in January 2010 soon after his birth in New Orleans, Louisiana. She had been trying for adoption with her former husband, Jesse James since 2006 after New Orleans was hit by Hurricane Katrina.
Katrina happened in New Orleans and something told me, ‘my child is there.’ It was weird.
But when Sandra and Jesse’s adoption process saw the green light, they were going through a very difficult time. James had had an extramarital affair with a tattoo model, Michelle McGee, and their marriage was falling apart. Though that, the adoption process went through and Bullock became the sole parent of Louis.
The beautiful thing that I was constantly told was, The perfect child will find you. You will find your child.
She found her perfect child and she couldn’t be happier. “It’s like he fit in the crook of my arm.”
However, for her former partner, it was a difficult time because he had decided to adopt a child together with Sandra and now, he couldn’t take care of him.
The decision to let my wife end our marriage and continue the adoption of Louis on her own has been the hardest. … Not having him around to love has left a huge hole in my heart.
Did you know, Sandra named Louis after What a Wonderful World singer, Louis Armstrong?
As aforementioned, Louis Bardo Bullock has a younger sister, Laila Bullock. Like him, his mother, Sandra Bullock adopted her in 2015 from New Orleans, Louisiana.
Before adopting Laila, Sandra didn’t even know if she would adopt another child. She was talking with one of her friends who was talking about her daughters when Louis chimed in saying he didn’t have daughters, but he’s going to have a baby soon.
He goes, ‘No, I don’t have a daughter, but I’m gonna have a baby soon.’ And I realized at that time maybe he knew something. And when I think about it, it would’ve been around the time that Laila was born.”
Well, sometime after, Bullock added a new family member to her happy family.
Louis Bardo Bullock has four step-siblings: Sunny, Jesse Jr., and Chandler James, and Skylar Staten Randall. Three of them were born from his mother’s ex-husband, Jesse James’ former relationships while one of them is from his mom’s current partner, Bryan Randall‘s previous relationship.
Sandra was finalizing her divorce with Jesse when she adopted Louis. Even after their separation, Bullock looked after James’ three kids (Jesse was in rehab for a few months). So, it wouldn’t be wrong to say, they’re Louis’ step-siblings.
Sandra still hopes that all of them stay in contact with each other.
Louis Bardo Bullock Now!
Sandra Bullock now takes care of her children, Louis Bardo and Laila Bullock with her current photographer boyfriend, Bryan Randall. According to Closer, they have now become one big happy family.
While talking to Jennifer Aniston, Sandra revealed how her current partner, Bryan became the #1 for her kids.
He’s super kind. For the kids, he’s sort of No. 1. And I’m No. 2. But I get it because he’s more fun and has better treats.
During the same interview, Bullock also revealed what Louis is like.
Lou is supersensitive. I call him my 78-year-old son. He’s like Shecky Greene, a Jewish Catskills comic. He’s wise and kind. I saw that when they handed him to me. There was a spiritual bigness to him. I was like, “I hope I don’t eff that up.”
Well, Louis, 11, is currently living a happy life with his younger sister, Laila, 9, and his parents, Sandra and Bryan.
