(Newser) – Sandra Bullock went from total silence to HOLY COW! in no time flat: In a People exclusive, she reveals that she has adopted a baby boy and filed for divorce. After starting the adoption process four years ago with her soon-to-be-ex-hubby, 3½-month-old Louis Bardo Bullock came into the Bullock-James family in January from New Orleans, but Sandra wanted to keep him a secret until awards season ended. She is now completing the adoption as a single parent.

"I'm sad and I am scared," Bullock says of her decision to divorce James, but her son has brought some joy back into her life: "He's just perfect, I can't even describe him any other way." She hopes Louis can experience "that father I have known Jesse to be" someday, and says she still plans to co-parent James' children. James, according to a statement, still hopes for a reconciliation. For more on the story, including how Sandra chose her son's name, click here.
