Sandra Bullock's adoption has been in the making for at least four years. People Magazine revealed Wednesday Sandra's biggest secret. The Oscar-winning actress adopted a newborn baby boy back in January. But Sandra Bullock knew she was ready for adoption and told Ellen Degeneres back in November her thoughts on adopting.
"Just because a child doesn't come from inside your body, doesn't mean that it is not your child," Sandra Bullock said on the Ellen Degeneres show.

Sandra Bullock's 3 1/2-month-old baby named Louis Bardo Bullock was born in New Orleans.
"He's just perfect, I can't even describe him any other way," Bullock reveals exclusively in the new issue of PEOPLE Magazine.
"It's like he's always been a part of our lives."
Bullock and husband Jesse James began the adoption process four years ago and brought Louis home in January. Sandra Bullock has been a second mom to James's children from a previous marriage: Sunny, 6, Jesse Jr., 12, and Chandler, 15.
Sandra Bullock and Jesse James separated in March following reports James had cheated. Bullock says she is now finalizing the adoption as a single parent. Click here for a glimpse of Sandra Bullock's baby pictures.
