Sandra isn’t quite ready to trade in mommy time for her life as an A-list actress. Can you relate to her working mom dilemma?
Now that it’s time to go back to work, Sandra Bullock is realizing that she will miss the quality time she has gotten to spend with her 1-year-old adopted son, Louis! After a whirlwind year — winning an Oscar for her performance in The Blind Side, discovering her now ex-husband Jesse James’ infidelity and raising Louis as a single mother — Sandra, 46, has found comfort in her little man and is reportedly not ready to head back to a movie set yet.
“Sandra hasn’t had much to do since adopting Louis, so she’s a little upset to have so much coming up,” a friend tells InTouch magazine. The adorable duo just spent their first Christmas together, which was very special for the new mom. “Sandra was never more happy than she was during the holiday season, shopping for toys and gifts for her little boy,” a source says.
But after a great Christmas and lots of bonding time with Louis, it’s time for Sandra to return to Hollywood after a well-earned hiatus. She will begin filming her latest movie, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, in New York with Tom Hanks in January and is also set to star alongside Ryan Reynolds (who she’s been romantically linked to) in Most Wanted. “She didn’t realize she would feel this way, but she really enjoyed being able to dedicate herself to Louis for the past year,” the friend says. It must be hard now that Sandra has become familiar with her mommy routine to then have to change her schedule.
“The truth is, Louis probably saved Sandra from months of pain and heartbreak with his sweet little smile,” the source says. “She wants to spend as much time with him as she can.”
