Sandra Bullock’s family feels whole! The Oscar winner, 51, announced that she had adopted a 3-year-old girl named Laila in early December, giving her son, Louis, 5, a younger sister.

"It's like he's been waiting for her,” Bullock told Access Hollywood on Wednesday, January 6, of Louis’ relationship with Laila. “Nothing has changed and everything has changed, but it's not different.” 

The Our Brand Is Crisis star added that there has been one slight alteration to the family dynamic.

"It's louder," she said, smiling. "It's so much louder, because she's got a voice that carries. She's going to be a singer, or a judge … Someone who commands a room with her voice."

But Laila is a natural fit in Bullock’s beautiful family.

"I don't know how to explain that,” she said. “It's like she's always been there, or we were always making room for her and waiting for her."

Another addition in Bullock’s life these days is her hunky photographer boyfriend, Bryan Randall. Back in August 2015, Us Weekly broke the news that the pair had been seeing each other.

“Bryan’s a child whisperer,” a source previously said of the former model (who is dad to college-age daughter Skylar). “I’ve never met a kid who didn’t love him.”
