Sandra got to spend a very merry Christmas afternoon with her ex-husband’s daughter in Austin, Texas. Should exes spend time with their former stepkids? Vote!
It seems that Sandra Bullock‘s Christmas wishes came true. Not only did she get to spend the day with her adopted son, Louis Bardot, but she also reunited with ex-husband Jesse James‘ daughter, Sunny, at her home in Austin, Texas. “Even though Sandra and her father are no longer together they have remained in touch — she had fun seeing Louis and playing with him,” a source tells RadarOnline.com.
According to the source, 5-year-old Sunny (whose mom is Jesse’s ex-wife former porn star Janine Lindemulder) also got to spend time with her dad’s new girlfriend, Kat Von D, in the morning before heading over to Sandra’s home. And the Oscar-winner couldn’t have been more happy. “Despite everything that has happened between Sandra and Jesse, Sandra has remained in touch with Sunny and his other two kids, Jesse Junior and Chandler, too,” explains the source.
HollyMoms, do you think it’s a good idea for an ex to still see the stepkids? Personally, I think it’s the best way to give all the children involved a sense of normalcy and family. Even Sunny’s mom thinks it’s a good idea. “Sunny loves Sandra and vice versa. She’s welcome to be a part of every aspect of Sunny’s life,” Janine told TMZ.
“I don’t want to know what life is like without those kids,” Sandra, 46, told People magazine last year after she and Jesse split. “Jesse and I both know these kids are all that matter. Whatever we need to do, in the healthiest way, we are going to be co-parenting.”
Despite the divorce, Sandra and Jesse, 41, both feel that it’s important for their kids to feel like a family. “Louis is their brother and Jesse and I will do whatever it takes for them to know that their world will not change and still be protected and safe and full of love,” Sandra says.
In fact, according to Sandra, it was Sunny’s idea for her to adopt Louis. “Out of the blue one day, Sunny proclaimed to me that we shouldn’t have another baby, that we should adopt,” reveals the star, who is so thrilled with her son, she’s hoping to adopt a baby girl in the near future!
We’re glad that Sandra got to spend the holidays surrounded by all of the people she loves.
