Bullock’s kids Louis and Laila are young right now, but she is teaching them the importance of being grateful. In a December 2019 interview with Closer Weekly, an insider spilled the beans on Sandra’s family life and said, “Louis and Laila only get three gifts each, which is plenty when you realize some children get nothing.”
The close source went on to say, “Sandra is raising kids who care about giving back, sharing, and more importantly realize how blessed they are. Louis and Laila may be young, but they get it.”
During a May 2018 interview with InStyle, the Bird Box star revealed that her son Louis is ‘supersensitive.’ She joked around and even called him her “78-year-old son.” At that point, she also stated that her son Louis is “wise and kind.”

What did Sandra Bullock have to say about adoption?
In December 2021, Sandra appeared in an episode of a talk show named Red Table Talk alongside Willow Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith, and her mother, Adrienne Banfield- Norris. At that point, she opened up and talked about her struggles with adoption and she called the experience “incredibly hard.”
Then, The Heat star said, “It’s a system that exists and people don’t know about it because it’s a difficult thing to talk about. It gets deep and it gets dark. When I first went through the process myself, you have to prove that you are a capable parent. You’re in the judgment cage. I got halfway through it and I said, I can’t do this.”
Sandra further added, “It was an out-of-body experience in that they literally sit down and they ask you, so what do you think is the worst kind of abuse? What is the worst kind of drug, or alcohol? I go, I don’t know, they’re all bad. You’re just going, if I don’t answer this right, I’m not fit.”
Then, Bullock discussed adoption in detail and went on to say that even celebrities who wish to adopt a child go through a thorough background check. She continued, “There is always, always a soul out there that needs you to be their parent. You’re put through the wringer. They ask a lot of questions. I had to have people write letters about my character, like oh my God.”
Sandra said, “But the soul that you are supposed to parent is out there and it’s ready for you. You just have to be willing to go through the gamut that feels very violating, that feels very invasive, that feels it’s questioning your ability to be a good and loving parent, and be okay with that. Because that soul deserves to have those questions asked and when they find it and connect you with it, you’ll understand.”
