That’s not just some tourist dropping into an art gallery in New Orleans’s French Quarter.
On Saturday, the day before Mother’s Day, Sandra Bullock visited A Gallery for Fine Photography with her baby boy, Louis, and friends.
The Big Easy has a special significance for Bullock and Louis, who born there nearly four months ago. Adopted in January, Louis’s happy arrival in Bullock’s home was announced April 28.
Residents of the city have welcomed the actress’s news with open arms.
Former New Orleans Mayor C. Ray Nagin offered his congratulations, saying, “Since Hurricane Katrina, Americans have prayed for us, given their time as volunteers in our community and demanded that no other city ever go through what New Orleans experienced. Sandra Bullock has become one of us. We wish this new mother every success.”
