Tabloids have been reporting Sandra Bullock’s second adoption for months now but People recently confirmed it in an exclusive cover story shot by Photographer Bryan Randall. The photo features the 51-year-old Oscar winner holding her new daughter Laila (pronounced Lila), a 3 and a half-year old from Louisiana who had been in foster care, and her son Louis embracing his mom with a smile. All we see of Laila is the back of her head and two neat little afro puffs.

“When I look at Laila, there’s no doubt in my mind that she was supposed to be here. I can tell you absolutely, the exact right children came to me at the exact right time…I knew she was scared, and all I wanted was for her to know Louis and I weren’t going anywhere,” Bullock told People.

She also added that her first adopted child, 5-year-old Louis Bardo Bullock, who was also living in Louisiana prior to the adoption, spearheaded the entire journey.

Congratulations are in order for Sandra (and Louis)!

    Congrats to them. I really like Sandra. She seems like a very nice, down-to-earth person. I also get the impression that she isn’t using these Black children as props. I’m glad that Louis has another sibling as well. Laila looks like Blue Ivy from the back.

    I like that she adopts her kids from foster care, here. Too many people with money going to adopt from the kinds of places that don’t do due diligence to make sure the kids are legitimately eligible for adoption.

      My aunt adopted from overseas but from her native country. The thing about domestic adoption is that many of the children have serious health and mental problems. They are often older children. There is also the risk of extortion and harassment on the part of some biological parents if their kids are adopted by rich people.
