Join me in welcoming Sandra Bullock to the single moms club.People reports exclusivelythat Bullock is finalizing the adoption of her three-month-old son,Louis,as a single parent.
According toPeople,"Bullock,45,and husband Jesse James,41,began the adoption process four years ago and brought Louis home in January but decided to keep the news to themselves until after the Oscars.Their close friends and family,including James' children Sunny,6,Jesse Jr.,12,and Chandler,15,were essential in keeping the adoption a secret."
It's no surprise that Bullock is choosing single motherhood after news of James' affairs broke,thrusting her into an unpleasant spotlight.It's strange how things work out,though--James and Bullock,like other married couples,entered into parenthood together,and even though they are divorcing,it's interesting that Bullock and James have decided not to adopt this child together,meaning James isn't the father.(Morally,I'm wondering,do you think James should father this baby?Is it the same as walking away from a biological child?)
Like other famous celeb single moms (Bridget Moynahan and Sheryl Crow),I have no reservations when I say Bullock has an edge over the average single mom--and that's money.No one likes to talk about money;it's crass,but let's face it,it costs more than $100 a month to diaper a baby.Money,nanny,family and friends aside,Bullock is now responsible for this child,and that's huge and wonderful--and overwhelming.I think she's super brave to take on the challenge,considering,like me,she went into this thinking she'd be co-parenting with someone.Money doesn't hold your hand when your child has a 105.1 fever or needs to be at preschool the same time the big conference call for work is starting.Money isn't an ear,a shoulder,a confidant--a parent.Parenthood is the hardest job on the planet,and when you're doing it alone,there's no room to be fired.You can't let your boss down.
Let's discuss: What do you make of Bullock's decision to adopt the baby as a single parent?Should James and Bullock have finalized the adoption together,considering the child had nothing to do with the divorce?Would you be comfortable entering into single parenthood?Do you think having money makes single parenthood easier?
