Jesse James is selling off his California home and planning a move to Austin, Texas so he can be close to his soon-to-be ex-wife Sandra Bullock and their adopted son, according to a U.S. report.
Bullock recently filed for divorce from James after news of his alleged infidelities hit the headlines in March (10).
The actress went public with her thoughts and feelings in a People magazine expose last month (Apr10), while revealing she had adopted a baby boy from New Orleans, Louisiana earlier this year (10).
Now the same publication reports the TV mechanic is hoping to mend the rift with Bullock so he can establish a relationship with little Louis, who they adopted as a couple.
And James is serious about making it work - he has reportedly put his Orange County house up for sale and placed a bid on another property in Austin, where Bullock has a home.
A source says, "Jesse feels that, as time goes by, his and Sandra's relationship has still not reached the final chapter. He is not giving up hope that Sandra will come back to her family."
James is set to reveal all to U.S. news show Nightline next week (25May10) in his first TV interview since the scandal broke.
Insiders claim he will open up about his recent stint in rehab, the allegations of cheating that wrecked his marriage, and the adoption of baby Louis.
