Sandra Bullock Explains How She Kept New Daughter Laila a Secret From the World

Now that the news is out that Sandra Bullock adopted a three-year-old daughter named Laila, she’s describing just how hard it was to keep her a secret from the world.

“From the ruse I had to construct so that Louis didn’t have to lie to his friends at school, to the stories I constructed for friends and coworkers as to why I was absent all the time, the subterfuge was pretty elaborate,” the 51-year-old Oscar winner, who also has a son Louis, 5, told People. “But there is always the chance that the bonding process wouldn’t happen or that the CPS [Child Protective Services] workers would feel I wasn’t a suitable match. So I had no problem lying and fabricating stories to keep things on lock down…It felt very much like witness protection.”

Sandra went on to explain that during an emergency room visit, a photographer took pics of her daughter in secret. “Unbeknownst to me, a photographer had followed us and taken a photo of us in line,” Sandra explained. “The next day, I learned that a photo of her was being shopped around for sale to every outlet around the world. I had promised and legally agreed to protect her from something like this, and here I was chasing down lawyers—having them begging them to keep her safe.”

“Most foster children are in foster care because they were taken from their birth homes under tragic circumstances—and the last thing I wanted was to bring more harm to her because of the nature of my job,” Sandra continued.

Sandra‘s boyfriend Bryan Randall photographed the family for People‘s spread!

    I think she meant it was prior to the finalizing of the adoption and it could have hindered the process.
