ktla: Bullock says she is adopting a 3 1/2-month-old boy from New Orleans.


Academy Award-winning actress Sandra Bullock says she has filed for divorce from husband Jesse James, and is adopting a baby as a single mother.

The actress separated from James in March in the wake of his cheating scandal. The split came just 10 days after Bullock won the best actress Oscar for her role in the blockbuster "The Blind Side."

In a story posted Wednesday on People magazine's website, the 45-year-old actress also reveals that she is adopting a 3 1/2-month-old boy, Louis Bardo Bullock, as a single parent.

Bullock and James, 41, started the adoption process four years ago and brought Louis home in January but decided to keep the news to themselves until after the Oscars. The boy was born in New Orleans.

Bullock told the magazine that she is "sad" and "scared" about divorcing her husband of five years.

James reportedly confessed to Bullock that he had been unfaithful with at least seven women. He also issued a public apology to his family following the reports of his infidelity.

The motorcycle mogul briefly checked into a Tucson, Arizona rehab facility to receive treatment for sex addiction.

Bullock's reps would not say in what jurisdiction the divorce papers were filed.

Fantastic! My brother is adopted from here. I’m thrilled to see that Bullock is adopting an African American instead of going abroad. Kids shouldn’t be left in foster care here.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again? WTF is a ‘sex addiction’??? Stop making excuses!
