Sandra Bullock welcomed her second child last year.
But the 51-year-old Oscar winner told Access Hollywood on Thursday she feels like daughter Laila has been in her life for longer.
‘It’s like she’s always been there’, she explained. ‘It’s like he’s [Louis] been waiting for her. Nothing has changed and everything has changed, but it’s not different.’

Bullock – who dates photographer Bryan Randall – was last seen Wednesday in a rd dress as she picked up her trophy for Favorite Movie Actress at the People’s Choice Awards.
The actress is already mother to five-year-old adopted son Louis, but further extended her family last December when she adopted three-year-old Laila.
‘I don’t know how to explain that. It’s like she’s always been there, or we were always making room for her and waiting for her.’

While there are certain aspects of her life that remain unchanged, she say that the volume levels in her household have drastically been altered since Laila’s arrival.
She added to Access Hollywood: ‘It’s louder. It’s so much louder, because she’s got a voice that carries. She’s going to be a singer, or a judge. Someone who commands a room with her voice.’
Leila had been in foster care in her home state of Louisiana before being taken under the actress’ wing, and the quick-witted star made light of her ‘baby-weight coming off’ when congratulated on her arrival.

Sandra has a varied career, with roles in movies such as The Heat, The Proposal, Crash and an Oscar-winning part in The Blind Side.
Most recently, the roles she has chosen have taken a change in direction, with the actress voicing Scarlett Overkill in animated movie Minions – a choice which she was was affected by having children.
She told them: ‘If it were up to my son, I’d be doing nothing but LEGO movies and Batman. I keep looking for the films he loves, and apparently there’s no need for me.
‘Maybe now they’ll be a need for me in the films that she likes.
‘Frozen? They seem to already have that down, so I’m going to find something. … You want [your kids] to be able to at least see something you’ve done.’
