Sandra Bullock Wants to End the Phrase “my adopted child”

Hollywood A-Lister Sandra Bullock sat down with Today Co-Host Hoda Kotb for an interview that will air on Monday’s show. The two women have a unique alliance, both sharing the experience of adoption to start families of their own.

Kotb, who adopted her 15-month-old daughter Haley Joy in February 2017 said to the Ocean’s 8 actress, “You don’t even know who you’ve inspired.”

The 53-year-old actress is a mother of two. Sandra adopted her daughter Laila, 5 ½ at the age of 3-years-old in December 2015 and her son Louis, 8, who she welcomed in January 2010 when he was just 3 ½ months old. Both of Bullock’s children were adopted from the state of Louisiana.

Bullock who is usually composed broke down in tears when opening up to Hoda about the special responsibility when becoming an adoptive parent, “You’re a forever parent the minute you accept the love of that child.”

The actress recently opened up to Ellen DeGeneres about the dynamics between Louie and Laila. She revealed that her son Louie is a doting big brother to Laila and is very protective of her. “He wanted his sister and he knew she was his sister, but now there are moments when they want to kill each other.” Bullock also explained that her son is the probable one to antagonize his sister between the two. She joked, “But I like that about her. I like that she’ll take a knife and cut a guy.”

The Oscar winner also spoke in the June issue of InStyle Magazine speaking on the advocacy of adoption and how she feels that we as a community must end the phrase “my adopted child.”

“Look: I’m all for Republican, Democrat, whatever, but don’t talk to me about what I can or can’t do with my body until you’ve taken care of every child who doesn’t have a home or is neglected or abused. It makes me teary-eyed,” she said.

“Let’s all just refer to these kids as ‘our kids.’ Don’t say, ‘my adopted child.’ No one calls their kid their ‘IVF child’ or their ‘Oh, s—, I went to a bar and got knocked up child.’ Let’s just say, ‘our children.’”

Olympian Misty May-Treanor Introduces Twin Daughters Mele and Mia

The family of beach volleyball superstar Misty May-Treanor continues to grow. The latest additions: a set of healthy fraternal twins. In a PEOPLE Magazine feature article, the Olympian introduces daughters Mele and Mia alongside big sister Malia.

May-Treanor is known as one of the greatest beach volleyball players in the world with three Olympic gold medals alongside partner Kerri Walsh. Nicknamed “The Turtle”, she made her way to the sand to earn 112 championship titles in local and global events.

Despite several early setbacks, she was able to find her niche and excel in her chosen sport. She turned professional in 1999 as a college senior on the AVP tour. By the time she graduated, she was part of the US National Volleyball Team. That didn’t last long, however, as she was more interested in playing on the sand than the court.

The shift was rewarded with immediate success as she was named Rookie of the Year in 2000 and got into the Sydney Olympics. The medals would have to wait until she teamed up with Kerri Walsh. Together they dominated the sport for over a decade. Their last Olympics was the London games.

She announced her retirement from the sport in 2012 to start a family with husband Matt Treanor. They were married back in 2004 while they were starting their respective sporting careers. Their first child came in 2014 when Misty gave birth to Malia Barbara. This November, they welcomed twin daughters Mia and Mele to the household.

The 40-year old May-Treanor has been slowly introducing the twins to the world, including the women’s volleyball team that she now coaches: the Long Beach City College Vikings. The athletes were photographed gathering around the stroller, their faces lit up at the sight of the little twins.
