Bullock admitted that sometimes she dreams of sharing her kids’ skin tone, while on December 1’s episode of “Red Table Talk,” PEOPLE reported.
The mother-of-two sat down with Jada Pinkett Smith, Smith’s daughter Willow, and mother Adrienne Banfield-Norris to discuss adopting 31/2 months-old Louis in 2010 and Laila in 2015.
Bullock wished for her children’s skin to match hers to ease how people approached them but Willow clarified that there is no color stipulation to the mother-child dynamic.
The “Speed” actress thinks of herself simply as the mom, adding, “When I’m gone, I’m missed, when I’m there, I’m annoying” and that is how it should be.
When questioned if her children think of her as cool, Bullock responded that they do not, unless she brings home a treat.
Nevertheless, the loving mother said she loves who her kids are and counts herself lucky and proud for being able to watch them grow up.
The “Red Table Talk” episode is available for streaming on Facebook Watch at 9 a.m PT/ 12 p.m ET.
