Leigh Anne Tuohy — the woman on which The Blind Side is based — recently met Sandra Bullock's adopted baby boy.

"She said, 'Here he is, what do you think? You better like him,' and I could eat him with a spoon," Tuohy tells Access Hollywood and The Billy Bush Show.

"He's the most beautiful little baby," Tuohy continues of 4-month-old Louis Bardo. "I just had lunch with them Saturday. He's got eyes that have wisdom. I could just stare at him all day."

Bullock, 45, stepped out publicly for the first time with Louis over Mother's Day weekend in his native New Orleans. The two had brunch at Commander's Palace and took in a few art galleries.

Tuohy says Bullock is staying strong during her divorce from Jesse James, who had an affair with tattoo model Michelle "Bombshell" McGee.

"I need her more than she needs me,” she says. "She tends to be a sounding board for me. She is one lady that exudes character and integrity… I love her immensely. She will weather this storm and I'm sure other ones, as we all do."

Touhy says she's "grateful" that Bullock portrayed her in the drama, which earned the actress an Oscar in March.

"She wore my makeup, my nail polish… It has turned our lives upside down, in a good way. It has given us a platform to talk about the Michael Ohers of the world," says Touhy, referring to the young man she adopted, who currently plays for the Baltimore Ravens.
