Since Sandra Bullock became an internationally recognized star, many fans have wondered if the actress is married and if she has kids. In case you’re unfamiliar with Sandra Bullock, she is one of the most decorated American actresses that ever lived. So far, in her multi-decade-long career, the brunette beauty has received at least 30 major American awards, 15 critic and associations awards, 9 film festival awards, and 24 international and miscellaneous awards besides countless nominations.

In 2010, she made Time Magazine’s list of ‘100 Most Influential People In the World’. Five years later in 2015, she was People Magazine’s Most Beautiful Woman. In terms of earning, she has been the highest-paid actress in the world for two different years (2010 and 2014). Beyond all these achievements, here’s more information about her personal life.

Is Sandra Bullock Married?

The actress is currently not married but she has dated a number of men and was once married. She tied the knot with Jesse James, the star of Discovery Channel’s series Monster Garage on Saturday, July 16, 2005. The evening event was held at the 300-acre Folded Hills Ranch located in Solvang, Santa Barbara, California before friends and family members of both the bride and the groom.

On the day of the wedding, Sandra Bullock was ten days away from her 41st birthday while James was 36 years of age. They had been dating for a year and a half prior to their marriage since Sandra Bullock took a godson of hers to James’ Monster Garage series as a Christmas treat. The marriage was Bullock’s first while it was James’ third.

As it’s often the case, the celebrity marriage began on a good note and the romance was whirlwind. The couple often gushed about one another and even fought a victorious custody battle together against Jesse James’ ex-wife, Janine Lindemulder in 2009.

However, their union began to crumble in March 2010 when a number of women came out to accuse Jesse James of having extramarital affairs with them while he was married to Sandra Bullock. James admitted that he was guilty of some of the accusations. Accordingly, he rendered a public apology to Bullock who found it difficult to forgive him. The following month, the actress filed for divorce which was finally granted in June 2010.

Though Sandra has not walked down the aisle again, she has been in a long term relationship with Bryan Randall, a model and photographer, since 2015.

Prior to her marriage to Jesse James, she had romantic relationships with a number of men; for instance, she once dated the actor, Tate Buckley Donovan for about three years in a relationship that ended in an engagement but did not culminate in a marriage. Bullock has also been romantically linked to the former NFL quarterback Troy Aikman, the American actor/ producer Matthew McConaughey as well as the Canadian actor/musician Ryan Gosling.

While Sandra Bullock was married Jesse James, the couple did not have any kids for the five years they were together. Then, in January 2010, about two months before their relationship ended, the couple began a process to adopt a baby boy who was was born then in New Orleans, Louisiana and eventually named Louis Bardo Bullock. Reports have it that Louis was already living with the couple but they chose not to disclose it. However, following the crisis that rocked their marriage a couple of weeks later, the couple did not continue the adoption process together. Rather, Sandra continued having custody of Louis as a single parent.

Five years later, in late 2015, Sandra Bullock adopted another child. This time, it was a baby girl named Laila, also from Louisiana. Unlike Louis who began to live with the Oscar-winning actress right from his birth, Laila had to be placed in foster care for three and a half years before she came to live with her in December 2015.

So, regarding the question of whether Sandra Bullock has kids, the answer is that she has two adopted amazing kids. It is public knowledge that Sandra Bullock did give birth to any kids while married to Jesse James or in the other relationships that she was ever in.
