Sandra Bullock would appreciate it if everyone would stop inquiring about her uterus, thankyouverymuch. “The Proposal” star is referring to constantly being asked about her pregnancy plans. “It always seems that people want to talk about my uterus. I’m not talking about their vagina or their penis. Why are they talking about my innards?” ‘Nuff said.
Bullock, who is married to “Monster Garage” host Jesse James and step-mother to his three children, Chandler, 15, Jesse Jr, 12 and Sunny, 5, says she avoided having children earlier in life because she didn’t want to be a selfish mother. “I didn’t want to have a child without a partner and I loved kids too much to have them right then, because I knew that the minute I have children my life would change.
“And then I met Jesse and I went, ‘Wow! There’s that feeling of wanting to procreate because I love someone and I see him to be a good father.’ ”
But Bullock, 44, is content being a step-mother to James’ children and loves them as if they were her own. “A life is a life. Whether or not it came from your body should be secondary, in my opinion. If tomorrow I got home and went, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m pregnant,’ I’d be like, ‘Wow! Isn’t the universe amazing?’ But what I learnt was that it’s being more of a parent to care for a child that’s not yours. It’s harder.”
