Bullock was already a mom to son Louis, now 11, when she met Randall, a photographer, and she adopted daughter Laila, 8, without his involvement, she said.
“I had Louis first. And then when I met Randall, and I was like, and we haven’t been together for that long. I said to him, “Do you remember the NDA you signed when you photographed my son? ” , did she say. “He was like, ‘Yeah.’ He’s still scared. Her whole life has been in trouble because of me. And I said, “You know, it still holds. And he was like, ‘Yeah, alright, alright, alright, why?’ And I was like, ‘Because I bring a kid home when I come back from Toronto.’ And he said, ‘Sorry, what?’ “
The “Bird Box” star said Randall was “so happy, but he was scared” and added that she is “a bulldozer” in terms of doing whatever she wants.
“This is the example I would like my children to have. I have a partner who is very Christian, ”Bullock said. And so there are two very different ways of looking at it. And I don’t always agree with him. “
“He doesn’t always agree with me,” added Bullock. “But that’s an example, even when I don’t agree with him saying, ‘If they can pull it off, and if that’s where they feel drawn to, then he’s exactly the right one. parent. ‘ “
Bullock also spoke of raising children of a different race, saying she wanted ‘our skins to match’.
“Because then it would be easier on the way people approach us. It is our anxiety. It’s our fear, ”she said. “This is our cross to carry the minute you become a mother. And I got the same feelings as a dark skinned woman with her babies or a white woman with, you know, white babies. ”
