Sandra Bullock Confirms Divorce From Jesse James, Adoption of New Baby Boy!

by at . Comments

Sandra Bullock says she has filed for divorce from Jesse James - and she has adopted a little boy from New Orleans, who she plans to raise as a single parent!

The Oscar winner tells People that "I'm sad and I am scared" about divorcing her husband, although she does not reveal where the divorce petition was filed.

She says she had no idea about his infidelity, exposed by Michelle "Bombshell" McGee (and Melissa Smith, and Brigittie Daguerre, and Merilee Gerth) in March.

Bullock adopted a three-month old boy named Louis Bardo Bullock, who she brought home in January to raise with Jesse James, but now plans to raise solo.

Of the baby, who was born in New Orleans and named after Louis Armstrong, Bullock says "He's just perfect, I can't even describe him any other way."

"It's like he's always been a part of our lives."

CLOSING THE DOOR: Sandra Bullock and Jesse James are getting divorced, but as one door closes, another opens - and she's focusing her energy on her new son!

Of the cheater, she says: "I really don't know how our paths will intersect in the future, but the father I have known Jesse to be ... is one that I hope Louis can experience one day, no matter how Jesse and I go on with our lives."

Jesse's response: "I know in my heart I can be the best father possible to my children, and realize that this is an incredible mountain to climb. But believe the steps I have taken in the last 30 days are the foundation to making this happen."

Rehab or not, it looks like Sandra's divorce plan is in full effect.

She and Jesse, who has three children from two previous wives, have been married almost five years. Follow the jump for more on Sandra's divorce and baby ...

As for her newly adopted African-American baby, Bullock told the celebrity magazine she arranged for the child to have a bris - the Jewish circumcision ceremony.

She says they planned to keep the Louis adoption news to themselves until after the Oscars, and James' children were essential in keeping the adoption a secret.

Then other things came up, of course.

Sandra claims she was absolutely dumbfounded when she first saw the Jesse James Nazi photo, of her soon-to-be-ex husband giving the Nazi salute, claiming:

"This is not the man I married."

We should hope not!

Sandra Bullock, Baby!

Asked if she were aware of any interest Jesse had in white supremacy or Nazism, she called the pic stupid, and said that "racism, anti-Semitism, sexism, homophobia, anything Nazi and a boatload of other things have no place in my life."

Bullock added, "And the man I married felt the same."

Well done, Sandra - on all fronts!

Sandra is certainly classy, intelligent, and has enough grace to face this head on, with no ugly words, so scenes, etc. I thank her for that. Just a few women have had the internal workings to behave as she has. I applaud her for that. And to keep a baby secret for a few months.......that is just so cool. I hope this is the way women will handle situations like this from this minute on. But there are always those who think knee-jerk reactions are more newsworthy than rational responses. Too bad. I admire women like Sandra who know that her "job" is just that, and her private life in just that also. Thank you Sandra.

Even though she's very good looking (I wouldn't go so far as beautiful especially after all the work she's had done) I bet she's not very sexual, which would explain, although not justify, Jesse's cheating. If you don't want your man to stray, then you'd better screw his brains out at home, especially if he's a "Vanilla Gorilla" Kinda sad to see her adopt a baby so soon after filing for divorce. Shows how much she "loved" Jesse's kids. Now she's got a kid, no husband to worry about cheating on her or having to have sex with. She seems very asexual.

I can't believe he managed to pull the wool over all of our eyes! I enjoyed watching him on the Apprentice and thought I could finally see what Sandra saw in him. She always seemed too good for him-now I know why-SHE IS! He is a dirtball that I now have absolutely NO respect for. How can you do that to someone with such a big heart, who absolutely loved you? Jesse, how can you go from a Cadillac to a Pinto in one step? Sad, very sad.
