Bullock was already mother to son Louis, now 11, when she met Randall, a photographer, and she adopted daughter Laila, 8, without his involvement, she said.
“I had Louis first. And when I met Randall, and I was like, and we weren’t together that long. I go, ‘Remember that NDA you signed when you were shooting my son?'” she said. . “He was like, ‘Yeah.’ He’s still scared. His whole life had been unraveled by me. And I said, ‘You know, that’s still true.’ And he said, ‘Yeah, okay, okay, okay, why?’ And I thought, ‘Because I’m taking a kid home when I get back from Toronto.’ And he said, ‘Sorry, what?'”
The “Bird Box” star said Randall was “so happy but he was scared” and added that she’s “a bulldozer” in terms of doing what she wants.
She characterized him as “Very patient. A saint. He has evolved on a level that is not human.”
“He is the example I would like to set for my children. I have a partner who is very Christian,” Bullock said. “And so there are two very different ways of looking at things. And I don’t always agree with him.”
“He doesn’t always agree with me,” added Bullock. “But he’s an example, even if I don’t agree with him going, ‘If they can take that away, and if that’s what they’re attracted to, then he’s just the right parent.'”
Bullock also spoke about raising children who are of a different race, saying she wished “our skins would match”.
“Because then it would be easier how people approach us. It’s our fear. It’s our fear,” she said. “It is our cross that we must bear when you become a mother. And I have the same feelings as a brown-skinned woman when it’s her babies, or a white woman with, you know, white babies.”
