- Laila Bullock is the youngest child of Academy Award-winning actress Sandra Bullock. She was adopted in 2015 from New Orleans, Louisiana.
Adopted Daughter of Sandra Bullock
- Laila Bullock was adopted by Sandra Bullock in 2015 following a lengthy adoption procedure of more than three years. At the time of her adoption, she was 3 and a half years old.
- Sandra didn’t think she would ever adopt another child; however, while talking to one of her friends, her son said he didn’t have a daughter but was having a baby soon.
He goes, ‘No, I don’t have a daughter, but I’m gonna have a baby soon.’ And I realized at that time maybe he knew something. And when I think about it, it would’ve been around the time that Laila was born.”
- Laila Bullock has an elder brother named Louis Bardo Bullock. He was adopted by Sandra following his birth in January 2010 in New Orleans, Louisiana.
- She also has step-siblings from her mother’s previous relationship. From Bullocks’ ex-partner, Jesse James‘, Laila has three step-siblings: Sunny, Jesse Jr., and Chandler James.
- Laila also has another sibling, Skylar Staten Randall from her mother’s partner, Bryan Randall‘s previous relationship.
Suffered from PTSD
- Laila Bullock suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
- While talking with InStyle magazine, her mother said that her PTSD originated from people trying to take pictures of her.
We had an allergy scare that sent us to the ER, and we were followed by the paparazzi, so the word was out that I had another child. And everyone wanted photos. It was heartbreaking. Louis would hear a helicopter or drone, and he’d run to get his sister and drag her across the lawn and hide her under the trampoline. So poor Laila had PTSD. But it took the bounty off once we did those official photos. Everything’s a learning experience.
- As of now, she is fine and unafraid.
Laila is just unafraid. She’s a fighter, and that’s the reason she’s here today. She fought to keep her spirit intact. Oh my god, what she is going to accomplish. She’s going to bring some real change.
