10 Adopted Celebrity Kids: Where Are They From? (Photos)

Sandra Bullock adopted Louis from New Orleans in 2010.

Plenty of people all over the United States have adopted children, whether they were unable to conceive on their own, or simply wanted to offer a loving home to a child who may not otherwise have one. Celebrities are huge fans of adoption, and though we don’t see what goes on behind the scenes, it does seem like the adoption process goes a bit smoother and more quickly for high profile parents.

Celebrity parents have adopted kids from the United States, but also other places in the world. Giuliana and Bill Rancic have been unsuccessful in becoming pregnant thus far, and they are even considering adopting a child from Italy.

Sandra Bullock is one celeb mom who shocked fans everywhere when she adopted baby Louis back in 2010, and got divorced from Jesse James right at the exact same time. It couldn’t have been easy to adjust to being single and being a parent all at once, but Sandra seems happier than ever with her little boy, who was born in New Orleans.

Here are photos of 10 more celebrity kids who were adopted, along with the countries they are originally from.
