Radar reported yesterday that Sandra Bullock has adopted a baby girl. A pap agency has photos of Sandy on Sunday cradling a baby walking into Cedars-Sinai. At post time, those pictures have not been published and apparently, Sandy’s legal team allegedly sent out requests for media outlets not to buy them. So far there’s been no confirmation from her rep about whether or not it’s true. But if it were not true, a simple statement about the child being a family friend would probably have made the entire story go away.

When Sandy adopted her son Louis, it was a privacy victory. And during a time of intense heat. The whole Jesse James situation had blown up. And somehow she managed to introduce Louis to the world on her time, on her terms. This kinda feels the same. She brought a baby home while we were preoccupied with her new boyfriend.

Think about the timing. We find out she had a plus one to Jennifer Aniston’s wedding in August. A couple of weeks after that, he’s identified as Bryan Randall. Bryan Randall becomes the focus. Meanwhile, it looks like Sandy’s focus, really, was on someone else.

PEOPLE was the magazine that had the exclusive of Sandy and Louis five years ago.

PEOPLE has so far remained quiet on this story, if not because they’re getting another exclusive then because they need to maintain a good relationship with her so that they can negotiate one.
