Leigh Anne Tuohy Meets Sandra Bullock's Baby

The mom who inspired the Blind Side star's Oscar-winning performance is getting to know the new man in Bullock's life

While filming The Blind Side, Leigh Anne Tuohy (the real-life mom portrayed by Sandra Bullock in the film) shared her family's story with the Oscar winner, and now Bullock is returning the favor. Tuohy recently had the pleasure of meeting Bullock's new baby boy, Louis Bardo, 4 months old, and says she instantly fell in love.

"She said, 'Here he is, what do you think? You better like him,' and I could eat him with a spoon," Tuohy told Access Hollywood of the son Bullock adopted in January. "He's the most beautiful little baby. I just had lunch with them Saturday. He's got eyes that have wisdom. I could just stare at him all day."

As for how Bullock is holding up in these months since her marriage to Jesse James was rocked by multiple claims of infidelity (she has since filed for divorce), Tuohy says the actress has shown incredible strength.

"I need her more than she needs me,” she says. "She tends to be a sounding board for me. She is one lady that exudes character and integrity... I love her immensely. She will weather this storm and I'm sure other ones, as we all do."
