Sandra Bullock hasn’t just become an Oscar winner in 2010. She’s also become a mom, Hollywood’s unofficial best secret-keeper and, sadly, a divorcee.
The actress reveals her latest titles in the cover story of the new issue of People, on newsstands Friday. The front of the weekly shows her beaming with her new adopted son, Louis Bardot Bullock, and the confession that she and Jesse James are heading for divorce.
The adorable tot is 3 and 1/2 months old and the result of a four-year adoption process inspired by James’ daughter Sunny.
Louis was born in New Orleans, brought home quietly in January and named after Louis Armstrong because his proud mom heard “What a Wonderful World” in her head the moment she laid eyes on him.
“The first time I met Louis, it was like the whole outside world got quiet,” she says. “It was like he had always been a part of our lives.”
Sandra Bullock makes her first statement since the sex scandal regarding her husband Jesse James first made headlines.
“There is no sex tape,” she says in a statement to PEOPLE on Tuesday. “There never has been one and there never will be one.”
She spoke out in response to an online report that James possesses a graphic sex tape which he could possibly use as leverage in a divorce case.
As you may had noticed, I don’t post gossip news here. I don’t like it, and I think a celebrity has the right of their own private life. And this week has been the hell for Sandy, due some news involving Jesse James.
Today he did a statement to People Magazine, as you can read below:
The vast majority of the allegations reported are untrue and unfounded. Beyond that, I will not dignify these private matters with any further public comment. There is only one person to blame for this whole situation, and that is me. It’s because of my poor judgment that I deserve everything bad that is coming my way.
This has caused my wife and kids pain and embarrassment beyond comprehension and I am extremely saddened to have brought this on them. I am truly very sorry for the grief I have caused them. I hope one day they can find it in their hearts to forgive me.
This will be the only post about this. I don’t know if Sandy has left his home, as reported. I only know her trip to Europe, for “The Blind Side” London premiere, was cancelled.
Let’s hope she get well.
Today is Sandy’s 45th birthday! And we wish her happiness, success, peace and love.
Sandra Bullock recently raved to Harper’s Bazaar that her husband loves to dote on her. “I’ve had to learn a hard lesson in that I’m not allowed to open car doors anymore,” Bullock, 44, said. “[Husband] Jesse [James] was like, ‘Just let me do this.'”
And they say chivalry is dead!
PEOPLE.com recently sat down with James, whose new show Jesse James Is a Dead Man premieres on Spike May 31, and got his take on being a gentleman. And James didn’t stop there. The tattooed tough-guy also revealed his very own (dirty little) beauty secret. Wonder what his wife thinks about this! Watch here!
Sandra Bullock recently admitted she’d love to have kids of her own even though she’s in her mid-40s. Her husband Jesse James, who has kids from a previous marriage, tells us he’s on board. “I would love to have more kids. Kids rule, so if it happens, it happens. You never know,” claims James of “Monster Garage” fame. For now, he tells us the two are happy with their lives, which are a lot more low-key than some might assume.
“We live a totally normal life. Other than driving Ferraris around and stuff, everything else is totally normal,” he adds with a laugh. “We have the kids, our house, the dogs. I get up at 5:30 every day and come into the shop and work, go to the gym, and go home. We’re pretty lucky to be doing what we’re doing, but we try to live as normal as possible. I’m still at the shop in Long Beach every day and I deal with customers on a daily basis. I try to keep my feet grounded and not stray too far from what put me on the map in the first place and that’s West Coast Choppers.”
