NEW YORK (AP) — Actress Sandra Bullock says her baby son is the “crown prince” in the family because everyone else is female — even the pets.
Bullock called her adopted son from New Orleans, Louis Bardo Bullock, her “little Cajun cookie.” She started the adoption process four years ago, and Louis’ adoption was finalized earlier this year.
In an interview airing Tuesday on NBC’s “Today” show, Bullock says she didn’t want to use her celebrity status to speed up the adoption process. She says: “I wanted to do everything exactly the same way everyone else did.”
Bullock was in New Orleans this week for the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina to celebrate the opening of a school-based health clinic that she contributed to.
Bullock finalized her divorce from biker businessman Jesse James earlier this year.
