San­dra’s big baby news

The ac­tress is over the moon as she pre­pares to an­nounce that she and Bryan are ex­pect­ing!

NW - - People's Choice Awards 2018 -

At first, San­dra Bul­lock wasn’t sure she wanted to star in her next movie, thriller Bird Box, where she plays a woman called Malo­rie who has a cold in­dif­fer­ence to chil­dren. “I don’t re­late to some­one who doesn’t want to be a mother,” she says. “I don’t re­late to some­one who isn’t warm and can’t love freely.”

In fact, be­ing a mum is all San­dra has ever wanted, and her dream came true when she adopted Louis and Laila. But since boyfriend Bryan Ran­dall came into their lives, there’s also been the chance that she could ex­pe­ri­ence her own preg­nancy one day.

That day, it ap­pears, is now. Yep, friends are buzzing that San­dra is ex­pect­ing her first child at age 54. OMG!

“San­dra’s dropped hints there could be a mir­a­cle baby on the way,” says a source. “She’s backed out of nu­mer­ous so­cial en­gage­ments, in­clud­ing one of her clos­est friend’s birth­day party, be­cause she

wasn’t feel­ing well. And she’s avoided al­co­hol at ev­ery oc­ca­sion she has at­tended. So loved ones are just ex­cit­edly wait­ing for the of­fi­cial an­nounce­ment.”

Happy sur­prise

It’s been a dif­fi­cult few months for San­dra, af­ter her dad John and two of her dogs died just weeks apart from each other. So the pos­si­bil­ity of bring­ing new life into the world af­ter so much loss has made her deeply emo­tional.

“The mo­ment she found out she was preg­nant would no doubt bring San­dra to tears,” the in­sider says. “At her age, she knows a baby would be a mir­a­cle.”

Luck­ily, she’d have Bryan to share that mir­a­cle with. The model-turned-pho­tog­ra­pher has been there for San­dra since 2015, when he was hired to take pic­tures of Louis, eight, and sparks un­ex­pect­edly flew. “He’s the man she’s al­ways dreamed of – hon­est and loyal,” says the in­sider. “She loves Bryan and her kids al­ready love him like a dad.”

Bryan, 52, also has a grown daugh­ter from a pre­vi­ous re­la­tion­ship. And though San­dra’s rep de­nies that she’s preg­nant, the pair have been ea­ger to add to their brood.

“San­dra’s made no se­cret of telling peo­ple how both she and Bryan have been hop­ing to get preg­nant with a mir­a­cle baby,” re­veals the in­sider. “She even had a bot­tle of pre­na­tal sup­ple­ments in her purse, which some friends saw. She lives a very clean life­style in gen­eral and has the best doc­tors in town, which is likely to in­crease her chances

of conceiving, too.”

Per­fect fam­ily

Don’t ex­pect a shot­gun wed­ding any­time soon, though. “San­dra loves Bryan. She wants to grow old with him, but she never wants to get mar­ried again,” says the spy. The rea­son? Two words: Jesse James. San­dra was shat­tered when news broke that her ex-hus­band had cheated on her with a slew of women. “The heart­break and hu­mil­i­a­tion she felt with Jesse left her so scarred, and that’s why she’ll never marry again,” says the source. “Bryan’s ac­tu­ally fine with that – he un­der­stands. She and Bryan al­ready con­sider each other hus­band and wife any­way.”

Wel­com­ing a baby would bond them even more – even though, like Louis and Laila, six, a new ar­rival might pre­fer Dad.

“For the kids, he’s sort of Num­ber One and I’m Num­ber Two,” San­dra ad­mits of Bryan. “But I get it be­cause he’s more fun and has bet­ter treats.”

The ac­tress brings a lot to the ta­ble, too. Among her strengths: be­ing pre­pared. “San­dra’s al­ready dreamed up her per­fect nurs­ery,” says the source. “She’s been or­der­ing fur­ni­ture, like a rock­ing chair, which would be ideal for a baby’s room. Ev­ery­one is over­joyed for her.” ■
