Blue Monday: Sandra Bullock revealed that Louis is going to be a heartbreaker on last night's Tonight Show
After the painful unravelling of her marriage to serial cheater Jesse James, the last person you'd expect Sandra Bullock to want around the house is a budding ladies' man.
But she told Jay Leno on The Tonight Show yesterday that she's got just that, happily though, it's in the tiny, adorable form of her 23-month-old son, Louis.
The 47-year-old Academy Award winner, who was resplendent in royal blue at the Burbank studios in California, told Leno that Louis is 'probably the best baby in the world, but I think every parent says that.'

Then she added that he is a 'flirt,' Bullock before adding that the little one 'appreciates the fairer sex.'
'He doesn't flirt with me like that, and someone told me that's probably a good thing,' she joked.
'He's got a look where he just cuts the eyes at the ladies, and I'm like, 'I'm so sorry! I don't know what's happening.''
Bullock also revealed that she's been looking to her late mother, German opera singer, Helga Meyer, for a parenting model.
She said: 'My mother was very strict, but rightfully so. She just didn't want me in a car with any boys whatsoever until I was 18. Apparently she knew what went on there and I wanted to find out.'

Then in what seemed to a knowing nod to her dastardly ex, she added: 'I was allowed to go on a date twice, to a dance, but I had to call every 20 minutes. I do feel she knew something that I didn't.'
Bullock appeared on the show to promote her new film, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, but couldn't stop gushing about Louis as they prepare to spend their second Christmas together.
She said: 'I don't think he understands the concept, but he does understand that everything at his height level is really bright with lots of lights.'
'He doesn't get it yet but I think next year he'll get it and demand things.'
As for Bullock, she told Leno that she must break the law to get what she wants for Christmas.
