Sandra Bullock's Family

Notably, in an interview with Hoda Kotb on the Today Show, the popular actress got emotional when she talked about what her late mother would have thought of her now as a mother to her daughter, Laila, and her son, Louis.

"I often sit and, like, I wish that they would just allow the person who's deceased just to beam down for a second so you can say, 'When do you want them to show up?' And I was like, 'Like, right now would be the ultimate time,'", she stated.

Furthermore, she added that her mother would have loved every single minute of it. The Oscar-winning actress also stated that she would have wanted her to assure her that everything is working great now and they are doing great.

Eight years ago, the actress also became an open book about how her parents brought her up. According to her, she was treated with her siblings equally, no one was greater, more powerful, or more intelligent.

She also wishes to mirror the same parenting method with her adopted children and wanted to let her kids know that they belong in a large and diverse family.
