Louis Bardo Bullock

The main man these days in Academy Award-winning actress Sandra Bullock’s life is her 3-year-old son Louis Bardo Bullock, but it appears mum Sandra may have competition for her adopted boy’s attention.

“If there’s a choice between me, and George [Clooney] and Alfonso [Cuaron], my son will leave me to be with George and these guys. He’s a boy’s boy, so he has to go talk to the men,” the 49-year-old recently revealed at a Toronto Film Festival press conference for her new film Gravity, directed by Alfonso.

But at the end of the day, Louis is still a big fan of his celebrity single mum. Big-eyed Louis is all smiles when he is with Sandra, and the sweet pair is often seen out and about the Los Angeles area hand-in-hand.

‘It’s worth it’

Sandra didn’t intend to raise Louis on her own. In 2006, she and her then husband Jesse James began the adoption process for a newborn baby. Four years later in January 2010, Louis was born in New Orleans.

But by then, Jesse’s highly public extramarital affairs had brought an end to their marriage. Sandra, however, pushed through with the paperwork and soon began her new life as a single mum to little Louis.

And the actress is loving it. “If you let a child into your life, you get a second chance at a childhood and you do things you thought were long past,” Sandra explained to Extra shortly after adopting Louis. She added during a separate interview to E! News: “I’m just here to change diapers and feed him and make money for school. That’s my purpose here and it’s worth it.”

Now, Sandra and Louis are like two peas in a pod. The mother-son duo is regularly spotted spending time together after school or visiting one of their many famous friends, such as fellow single mum Charlize Theron and her 1-year-old son Jackson. In fact, Sandra and Louis, looking casual and relaxed, attended a birthday party for actor Matthew McConaughey’s son Levi in Malibu this summer.

And what does little Louis think of his doting mother? “He just thinks of me as a superhero,” Sandra jokes.

With Sandra’s schedule, she has to be. The busy mum says she wakes at up 5.45 in the morning to prepare breakfast for Louis as well as that evening’s dinner in advance. She then drives her son to school at 7:45 and picks him up in the afternoon for lunch, and in between she makes phone calls or works out. Then comes swimming class with Louis, bath time, and finally bed time.

This actress maintains her A-list status while living the busy life of a single working mum. No wonder Louis sees her as a superhero!
