Happy Birthday, Sandra Bullock! The now 56-year-old actress has been out of the spotlight since becoming a mom and only recently have we got a glimpse into her life with son Louis and daughter Laila. But while we may not be seeing Sandra and her kids in photos, like many other celebrity moms who avoid paparazzi, the actress has made quite the family for herself away from the cameras and has put her family first.
“No matter how it comes together,” Bullock said as she accepted the 2019 MTV Movie & TV Award for best-frightened performance for her Netflix hit Bird Box, “family is what you fight for, family is what you protect.”
“No matter what, you are my first thought in the morning, you are my last thought at night,” she continued. “I was put on this earth to protect you, you are my world, I love you so much, and I will move mountains to make sure that you are safe.”
So, as this fiercely passionate momma celebrates another year around the sun, we’re taking the opportunity to get to know her just a little bit better.
Cheers to you, Sandra!
