Sandra Bullock's Nickname for Baby Louis: 'My Little Cajun Cookie'
Bullock called her adopted son from New Orleans, Louis Bardo Bullock, her "little Cajun cookie."
She started the adoption process four years ago, and Louis' adoption was finalized earlier this year. Bullock announced her adoption in the midst of husband Jesse James' brutal cheating scandal, resurfacing after months out of the public eye with a glowing PEOPLE magazine cover holding her baby boy.
In an interview airing this morning on NBC's 'Today' show, Bullock says she didn't want to use her celebrity status to speed up the adoption process. She says: "I wanted to do everything exactly the same way everyone else did."
Bullock was in New Orleans this week for the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina to celebrate the opening of a school-based health clinic that she contributed to.
Bullock finalized her divorce from James earlier this year. He's since shacked up with the tattooed Kat Von D.
Photos of Bullock and Louis have been few and far between, though Us Weekly had some in May.
