The city of New Orleans is still buzzing with the news that Sandra Bullock's new son Louis is from New Orleans – and the Oscar winner is getting a lot of love sent her way.

"Personally, I'm thrilled for Sandra on the adoption of her child," says Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who celebrated his Super Bowl MVP win on the David Letterman show with Bullock on Feb. 8. "Clearly she has embraced the city of New Orleans and appreciates what a wonderful and culturally rich city this is, and the fact that she has adopted a beautiful child with roots to our city makes it that much more special."

He adds: "It goes without saying that she is a talented actress, a true humanitarian and philanthropist. We are all very happy for her and the new addition to her family."


Bullock's love of the city is part of what makes her a resident, says New Orleans Mayor C. Ray Nagin, who also sends his best wishes.



"Congratulations to Sandra Bullock and her new son," says Nagin. "Since Hurricane Katrina, Americans have prayed for us, given their time as volunteers in our community, and demanded that no other city ever go through what New Orleans experienced. Sandra Bullock has become one of us. We wish this new mother every success."

Local actor (Mad Men), designer and author Bryan Batt, who was on hand for the New Orleans premiere of The Blind Side, also praised Bullock's work in the Big Easy.

"Besides being a brilliantly talented, lovely actress, she has the biggest, kindest heart and does so many great things for the city of New Orleans quietly and anonymously," says Batt. "I just wish her all the joy this new life can bring. I join the city of New Orleans in singing her praises and wish her nothing but happiness."
