Jesse James Moves to Texas to Be Closer to Sandra Bullock

The motorcyle man moves closer to his estranged wife in an effort to preserve her relationship with his kids

Is Jesse James trying to close the distance between him and estranged wife Sandra Bullock? Seems that way, as James' lawyer confirmed that the biker will be permanently moving to Austin, Tx., in July, after he finishes taping a History Channel special.

And it's not a coincidence that Bullock has a home there (though she also recently bought a house in New Orleans). James told Saturday morning that his move is partly because his kids love Bullock and want to continue their relationship with her. He will continue operating West Coast Choppers in Orange County, but plans to work full-time at the Austin Speed Shop and will open another Cisco Burger restaurant.

Bullock and James began the adoption process for baby Louis Bardo together in January -- before the news of James' infidelities broke and Bullock filed for divorce -- but James later relinquished his parental rights and let Bullock proceed with the adoption on her own.

As for any future relationship with Bullock, James says, "Whatever happens, happens."

Sounds like wishful thinking to us.
