After splitting from her philandering man, the actress dropped a bombshell – she had adopted a baby boy, Louis Bardo, months earlier.  Although she began the adoption process with James, she finalized the papers as a single mom.

Angelina Jolie is another Academy Award winning actress who wasn’t afraid to be a single mother! Angie adopted her first child, Maddox, while she was with Billy Bob Thornton, but the couple split soon after and she got full custody.  She then went on to begin the adoption process for Zahara in 2005 as a single mother, until Brad Pitt signed on as proud papa.

Adoption after divorce is common in Hollywood! Weeds star Mary-Louise Parker adopted a baby girl from Africa in 2007, after splitting from Billy Crudup, and Meg Ryan adopted a baby from China in 2006, after splitting from Dennis Quaid.
