Sandra Bullock has dropped a different kind of bombshell than her estranged husband, Jesse James.

The Oscar-winning actress reveals to PEOPLE that in January she adopted a boy from New Orleans.

Her newborn son, Louis Bardo Bullock, is three months old. She and James began the adoption process four years ago, before becoming parents earlier this year. His name was chosen because Bullock heard Louis Armstrong's 'What a Wonderful World' when she first met the baby boy.

The couple decided to keep the news to themselves until after the Oscars. "I did not want him brought into a world that would not have been too sincere to him as I wanted. I wanted to be alone with him as long as I could then we had to tell his story," she said, MSNBC reports.

Unfortunately, just days after Bullock took home her trophy, James' many affairs came to light. The actress says she is now adopting as a single parent and is divorcing her husband, according to PEOPLE.

"Yes, I have filed for divorce," she told the magazine, adding that she is "sad and scared" about it.

A mother has certain rights in a custody matter.  Not only does she have the right to adopt a child, but she may have a right to primary physical custody of her own child(ren).  Depending on the circumstances of a case, she may even have a right to sole physical and legal custody, if there are such concerns as family violence, drug addiction, or a risk of flight from the jurisdiction.  Contact an experienced attorney at Shaffer & Engle Law Offices, LLC to discuss your options, at 717-695-8849 or at http://www.shafferengle.com/Family-Law/.
