Sandra Bullock shares why she hates people referring to children as “my adopted child”.

In the cover story for InStyle’s June issue, the 53-year-old actress opened up about her two beautiful children, 8-year-old Louis and 5-year-old Laila, both of whom were adopted.

“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,” she said when asked about her work with adoption advocacy and women’s rights.

“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, shit, I went to a bar and got knocked-up child.’ Let just say, ‘our children.'”

She makes a pretty good point. Do you agree?

  • I’m with Sandra. Same with step siblings and half siblings. I have half brotheres, but I call them all my brothers


  • I sure do agree – our children are our children. We love them and care for them. Who cares how they were conceived?


  • A great point to make – more people should have that attitude!


  • She’s a wonderful and very respectful women I really like how humble she is and a very kind person.
