Well, that came out of left field! Sandra Bullock revealed that she’s finalizing the adoption of a 3-month-old baby boy born in New Orleans.
“He’s just perfect. I can’t even describe him any other way,” the Oscar winner gushed to People magazine of Louis Bardo Bullock. “It’s like he’s always been a part of our lives.”
We’re not exactly sure who “our” refers to, considering that Sandy also admitted — in a far less shocking turn of events — that she’s filed for divorce from (allegedly) philandering hubby Jesse James. Turns out they quietly began adoption proceedings together and decided to keep it a secret — then ended up separating due to some, ahem, other secrets he was keeping on the side. She’s now going forward with the adoption on her own.
Jesse responded to the announcement in a statement: “The decision to let my wife end our marriage, and continue the adoption of Louis on her own, has been the hardest [of my life].” (“Let” her?)
“The love I have for Louis cannot be put to words. Not having him around to love and to hold has left a huge hole in my heart,” the penitent biker said. “Sandy is the love of my life, but considering the pain and devastation I have caused her, it would be selfish to not let her go.”
Well, we’re glad to hear Sandra has a ray of sunshine in her life during this trying time. And she’s certainly strong, smart and competent enough to be an amazing single mom.
Bret Still Critical
After suffering a brain hemorrhage a week ago, Bret Michaels is still in critical condition but is speaking and moving — albeit slowly.
The Poison frontman’s father, Wally Sychak, told “Extra” he’d spoken with Bret on the phone. “The fact that he was talking to me, and giving me information, I thought that was great,” Wally said, adding that the hospitalized rocker “sounded a little slow but fine. He was talking [but] not as cheerful as he usually is. But I guess he is under sedation. But he understood what he was saying and knew me. Everything seemed good that way.”
Doctors “say he’s moving his arms and hands,” Wally said. “The best as they could expect at this time.”
Bret reportedly remains under round-the-clock observation by doctors, who continue to test him to figure out what caused the bleeding in his brain. It’s been determined, however, that it was not related to his recent emergency appendectomy.
Matt: Baby No. 4
Matt Damon is about to become a dad again! Wife Luciana is expecting a baby in the fall. “Everybody’s really happy,” a rep told People magazine.
Mind you, Matt already has admitted he’s outnumbered by the women in his household — Luciana; stepdaughter Alexia, 11; and daughters Isabella, 3, and Gia, almost 2 — so he’s taking a big chance here: another girl, and he could overload on “Dora the Explorer” paraphernalia. (Seriously, though, congrats to the happy family!)
Sour on Tweets
Our long national nightmare may soon be over: John Mayer is considering quitting Twitter! And get this — he says his feelings have soured on the networking site not because he’s made a fool of himself with it, but because the whole tweeting trend is passé.
"Within in the last couple weeks," the singer-songwriter confessed, according to "E!", "every night I think about canceling my Twitter account because I think it's pretty much done. I just think Twitter as a form of communication, I think it's over to be honest with you."
Added the gregarious “Battle Studies” musician, "I can't tell you how many times I meet people or I'm having dinner with people who write stuff and they get upset they have haters now, like, ‘Why do I want to invent more reasons to have haters?' I might as well spend that time making a sandwich or building a model ship or something.’"
Um, John? We don’t know anyone on Twitter who has “haters” … which leads us to suspect that that only happens to people who repeatedly tweet obnoxiously self-satisfied witticisms. We’ll leave you to guess who that might be.
