Sandra Bullock Loves Adopted Son So Much She Would Be 'Totally Okay' With Five More Kids

Via LifeNews.com, we learn that movie star Sandra Bullock feels the adoption of her son Louis has changed her entire worldview: “Work was my life before. Now I have no reason to leave home.” Some of have suggested Bullock was inspired by her part in "The Blind Side" to adopt Louis (born in New Orleans), but she's said it was a long-planned decision.

She enjoys motherhood so much she told Vogue, “If all of a sudden someone said, ‘You have five more kids,’ I’d be totally OK with it.” Sandra told Vogue, that at this moment, “I’m having such an amazing time. Whatever comes our way, we handle as a family. It’s not just me anymore.”

“I think this business can take the child out of kids so quickly. I don’t want him to have pressures brought on by what I do. I will quit. I will leave. If I see whatever I’m doing affecting him negatively, I will pack up and move to Alaska.” Melissa McCarthy, her co-star in the hit comedy, "The Heat," told the magazine “Louis is number one, and the next one down is 101. He takes up the first hundred slots in her life.”

When she adopted her son in 2010, Bullock told People magazine: “If you had told me that this would happen, I would have thought you were insane. I never imagined I would say the words ‘my son.’” She added: “The first time I met Louis it was like the whole outside world just got quiet. He was so small, so still. All the trivial things that I had allowed to take up so much of my time just didn’t have room in life anymore. All I said when I met him was, ‘Oh, there you are.’ It was like he had always been a part of our lives.”

PS: The Vogue revelations came near the end of the article. Bullock is starring in the new movie "Gravity" about an astronaut that  ends up stranded and floating in space on her first space shuttle flight. Bullock jokes that she was such a fan of the director she would have “taken a part in Alfonso Cuarón’s Garfield IV.” She saw the film as a “once-in-a-lifetime” opportunity. “You check it off and go, ‘If it ends here, I’ve ended up on top,’ ” she says. “There’s nothing else to do.”
