Sandra Bullock has spoken. The celebrity mom tells InStyle magazine that it is high time we stop placing labels on children who have been adopted.
“Let’s all just refer to these kids as ‘our kids,'” the actress says. “Don’t say ‘my adopted child.’ No one calls their kid their ‘IVF child’ or their ‘oh, sh*t, I went to a bar and got knocked-up child.’ Let just say, ‘our children.'”
Bullock welcomed her first child, Louis, into her home after adopting him in 2010. She later welcomed a daughter named Laila who was adopted by Bullock in 2015.
“Lou is super sensitive,” Sandra says of her son. “I call him my 78-year-old son. He’s like Shecky Greene, a Jewish Catskills comic. He’s wise and kind. I saw that when they handed him to me. There was a spiritual bigness to him. I was like, ‘I hope I don’t eff that up.'”
As for Laila, “She’s a fighter, and that’s the reason she’s here today. She fought to keep her spirit intact. Oh my god, what she is going to accomplish. She’s going to bring some real change.”
Sandra Bullock is one celebrity who does not have a big presence in the social media sphere. “I’m not ignorant of what’s happening out there,” the actress says of her choice to stay away from platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. “I’m just lazy [about setting up a page for myself]. But I’m going to get on it and troll my friends. Once my kids are using it, I’ll know how to navigate it. I don’t want to be naïve.”
It will be interesting to see how Sandra Bullock navigates the way of social media when she decides to join the sphere. Stay tuned for more celebrity mom news!
