Sandra Bullock reportedly approved Jesse James` move to her hometown of Austin, Texas.
The 45-year-old actress filed for divorce from the 41-year-old earlier this year after it was claimed he cheated on her with a string of women. The star moved out of the Californian home she shared with Jesse and relocated to New Orleans with her adopted baby Louis.
Sandra and Louis will split their time between New Orleans, where he was born, and Austin, where she hails from. Last week, it emerged that Jesse had purchased a home in Austin and was planning to move there with his children Chandler, 15, Jesse Jr., and six-year-old Sunny.
The move was declared a desperate and unwelcome attempt to reconcile with Sandra, but a family friend has now revealed the actress approved of Jesse`s relocation. The source says the former couple talk often, with Sandra agreeing to the move because it meant she would be closer to his children, who she is known to have a close relationship with.
"Jesse would not relocate his family without consulting with her," the insider told UsWeekly magazine. "This has been in the works for a while. Austin is Sandra; it is not him."
Despite being back on speaking terms with Jesse, Sandra is not planning on reconciling with him. Her spokeswoman has confirmed the couple`s divorce is "on schedule" and progressing well.
