Since becoming a permanent fixture in the Bullock household, 3-year-old Laila has made sure that her voice has been heard. “It’s so much louder,” said the Minions star, adding: “She’s got a voice that carries. She’s going to be a singer or a judge. Someone who commands a room with her voice.”

Sandra announced that she has adopted a little girl in December, after months of speculation. Revealing the news to People she said: “When I look at Laila, there’s no doubt in my mind that she was supposed to be here.”

The actress also revealed that it was her adopted son Louis that pushed her to adopt again. “Louis spearheaded this whole journey,” she revealed, adding that the two have formed an inseparable bond and are incredibly caring with each other.

Before adopting the 3-year-old girl, Sandra fostered her, wanting her to feel comfortable in her home. “I knew she was scared, and all I wanted was for her to know Louis and I weren’t going anywhere.” Since her arrival, The Blind Side actress said the young girl, originally from Louisiana, has brought “pink and glitter in the house mixed with Legos and Batman.”
