The world learned Wednesday (April 28) that Sandra Bullock has adopted an infant born in New Orleans — and that she has filed for divorce from husband Jesse James.
While Bullock and James started the adoption process together four years ago, now it seems James will not play a part in helping raise the 3-month-old baby boy, Louis.
In People’s upcoming 10-page spread (on newsstands Friday, April 30), James made the following statement about losing his wife and baby boy:

wife end our marriage and continue the adoption of Louis on her own has
been the hardest. 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.
“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. Right now it
is time for me to beat this addiction that has taken two of the things
I love the most in life.

come once again to show that I am not what everyone says I am. I know
in my heart that I can be the best father possible to my four children
and the mate Sandy deserves, and realize that this is an incredible
mountain to climb. But I believe that the steps I have taken in the
last 30 days are the foundation for making this happen. The lifelong
commitment I am making is what being a real husband and father is all
“I ask that you please do not judge Sandy for the things I have done.
She has done no wrong. She played no part in any of this. She has been
an amazing wife, mother and best friend for the over six years we have
