Actress Sandra Bullock reveals that she has filed for divorce and that she and her estranged husband Jesse James adopted a 3-year-old boy from New Orleans back in January on the cover of the new issue People Magazine. The now separated couple decided to name the toddler “Louis Bardo Bullock” because Sandra heard Louis Armstrong‘s famous song “What A Wonderful World” when she first met the boy.
The couple decided to keep the news to themselves until after the Oscars. “I did not want him brought into a world that would not have been too sincere to him as I wanted. I wanted to be alone with him as long as I could then we had to tell his story,” she said, MSNBC reports.
Unfortunately, just days after Bullock took home her trophy, James’ many affairs came to light. The actress says she is now adopting as a single parent and is divorcing her husband, according to PEOPLE. “Yes, I have filed for divorce,” she told the magazine, adding that she is “sad and scared” about it.
