Sandra Bullock RECRUITING Brother-in-law To Play Santa

SANDRA BULLOCK has recruited her brother-in-law to dress up as Santa and tip-toe around outside on Christmas Eve (24Dec15) to help keep the festive myth alive for her two young children.

The Blind Side star has previously donned the red and white suit herself to trick her son Louis, but she reveals the five year old is starting to question mum’s timely disappearance – so she’s called in a favour from her sister Gesine’s husband, Raymond Prado.

This year’s festivities will be all the more special for Sandra as she recently adopted a second child, a three-year-old daughter named Laila, who had previously been in care in Louisiana.

“Usually I dress as Santa and sneak outside so that there is a Santa sighting in the dark Christmas Eve,” she tells People magazine. “But Louis is onto me that I always have to ‘walk the dog’ when the family has their sighting. So I ordered the XL Santa suit this year and will pass the torch to my brother-in-law so I may watch Laila see him for the first time.”

Santa trickery aside, Sandra cannot wait to spend the holiday with her little family, adding, “The most magical part will be watching Louis show a little girl who may never have had a Christmas before what it’s all about.”
