I promise I was heading for a perfectly wonderful, quiet day when I came across this piece of news: Sandra Bullock introduces her 3 –month-old baby boy to the world! Louis Bardo Bullock!
Now this is one best seller issue for People Magazine – it’s a People exclusive, photos and interview. The first time Sandra goes public after her much publicized crashed marriage with Jesse James (you don’t want to get me started on that one! Really, you don’t! so I’m just gonna keep it with little Louis Bardo Bullock, you know I can’t help it when I see a new baby in town). What do you make of this? (oh, where are my manners! Congrats, Sandra! It’s a wonderful baby and I hope you’ll be as happy as humanly possible! You deserve it, girl!)
For now? I’m flabbergasted! Speechless!!!
He is lovely! What a wee darling!
Sandra will be a good Mom and she has that glow of love on her face in this cover photo, and she so deserves to feel that way!
how lovely.. Sandra is always adorable… whatever she does..
How could you Jesse?!?!?!?!?
Her best kept secret. A miracle. She has him yet since January and still wants Jesse to be a part of his life. Kudos to you Sandra! And lots and lots of happiness with little Louis. He’s named after Louis Armstrong by the way!
As you know I’m not a “fairy tale girl” and can not leave it to this; so more kudos to you Sandra, smart woman, you’ve handled a very bizarre situation so very well and with style. :))
I was saying to myself, anotherone who came to her 40s and wake up and realise that she forgot to do something maybe important in her life!
This is judgement I don’t know her and her history, But I can’t help with all those celebrities in their 40s adopting those creatures,
it’s a good thing for those babies, they will be loved but What Happened with the idea of getting pregnant?
Cafe au lait.
Firstly you do not know if Sandra or anyone is physically able to have a child, or if they wish to. It is a woman’s choice as it was yours when you chose to carry your child. It does not make you better than them or vice versa.
Secondly calling a baby a creature is just bad form.
Be happy that some children are getting the chance to have a loving home and that the women who could get pregnant but for what ever reason could not take care of the child or did not want one in the end had the option of adoption. There are tonnes of women out there who are pregnant and become mothers just because they can but in reality should not be doing so.
And finally be happy that you are blessed with your child as Sandra and women like her are!
Ellington! English is not café au lait’s first language. I’m very sure she’s didn’t meant anything wrong with using the word “creature”. I think she meant a creature of life in a good way.
And I get her drift because there are a lot of Hollywood women 40+ who adopt babies because they waited too long and the IVF didn’t work out or for other reasons.
I’m happy though when orphans, any orphan finds a good home and is loved. But to speak frankly? I don’t find Hollywood
very often not the right place.
Fine Adriana, but still “creature” is not a complementary word when describing anything in English and if English is not your first language then one should be careful of what one says. French is not my first language but I would never suppose to use a word that I do not understand the definition of.
And secondly,is it any one’s business if they” waited too long”?!! Who knows the circumstances.
That to me is very sexist and ageist. Some people are not ready to be parents at any age.
I am sensitive to this because I have friends who have tried to have babies (no they did not wait too long) but they could not conceive despite everything. They adopted in the end and are very happy. Another friend of mine had to have a hysterectomy at the age of 23! So no getting pregnant for her ever sadly.
And yes Hollywood can be Hollyweird but Sandra does not live there she lives in Texas close to her roots, family and friends. I think that she is the type who actually thought about what she is doing and getting into. I sometimes cannot say that about a lot of women who end up pregnant because sometimes the baby was not planned for.
What of that woman who adopted that young Russian boy but then sent him back by himself to Russia. She was not living in Hollywood but in what one might call a “normal” environment. To me that is just jank.
One cannot necessarily lump the intentions and the ability to love and nurture a child where they may be brought up.
Children are a gift whether one is able to give birth or one has to adopt or foster.
Why should someone be looked down on or jeered because they waited to have or adopt a child?
And to be frank I respect people who wait to make that choice about children because they actually consider if the can afford it and want the child.
I’m with Ellington on the matter (I’ll explain myself, don’t jump to conclusions, please!): I too respect those who wait, sometimes too long, instead of jumping in blindly, making babies anytime, anywhere, with anyone. Some get lucky and the baby brings them something genuinely good and positive. Some don’t. And don’t get me started on what the future holds for us, you’ve seen some many children brought up in the wrong way, in so many directions.
Giving life is such a miracle, and those who’ve been blessed with that, naturally, should feel just that: blessed. We do not choose the way we’re blessed and we certainly shouldn’t assume any superiority towards others because we have been blessed and they haven’t. It’s just wrong. A mother isn’t supposed to be more mother just because she gave natural (more or less) birth to her child/children. But because she raised her child properly. That’s motherhood/parenthood.
Receiving the gift of life and not knowing how to take care of it and honor it calls for many names but I will not get down to it. I’ll just say this: it’s a miracle. Like any other miracle, you never know what’s going to happen next…
I could go on with this but I do believe cafe au lait wasn’t intentional in her speech and she let go of all that anger in a wrong way. I too feel angry when those who were blessed (again, naturally or not) with the gift of life just don’t know how to honor it right. Like the little Russian boy who was sent back home? That’s beyond words! You just feel that storm inside you telling you how wrong it is and the words just won’t come out. How can you explain miracles to a non believer?
Sorry, that I’m only human and not perfect!!
We’re all humans, Adriana, and (thankfully) we’re far from being perfect! Remember how biased I was about the “glow”?
I wasn’t even aiming at Sandra! I meant Hollywood in general. If your memory serves you well I like her a lot. Plus read my second post again!!
And ladies I can assure you I know what a drama and a sadness it is to not be able to have children or worse to lose a child……….
I live in a country with a lot of immigrants from whom some doesn’t even want to learn my language although the lessons are free to help them to integrate in our society. So I encourage and respect the ones that tries and don’t lecture them when they use a word not in the right way and if I do I do it friendly to help them. Which is often fun and we have a good laugh.
If we get angry at each other about something like not using a word (which is not our own tongue) in the right way I see why this world is such a mess……..:((
All this cafe au lait business makes me want one…a coffee that is
I think everyone is missing the point, I feel so sorry for this child… having to grow up with the last name of Bullocks…
Martin Luther Bullocks Jr.
Poor child isn’t destined for greatness!
