Actress Sandra Bullock has lost her partner of many years, Bryan Randall, after a 3-year battle with ASL. His family broke the heartbreaking news of his sudden passing in a statement that began,
“With deep regret, we report that Bryan Randall peacefully passed on on August 5th, finishing a heroic 3-year battle against ALS. Bryan made the deliberate choice to keep his fight with ALS private, and those of us who cared for him diligently respected his wish.”
The statement continued:
“We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the unwavering medical professionals who guided us through the complexities of this ailment, and to the exceptional nurses who became an integral part of our lives, often putting their own families aside to stand by ours. During this period, we kindly ask for privacy as we mourn and attempt to come to grips with the painful reality of bidding farewell to Bryan.”
Bullock’s sister, Gesine Bullock-Prado, honored Randall in a touching Instagram post in which she also shared details of the actress’ heartbreaking final hours with her deceased partner.
“I’m convinced that Bry has found the best fishing spot in heaven and is already casting his lure into rushing rivers teaming with salmon,” Gesine wrote, sharing a photo of Randall taken on Monday, August 7.
When Bullock’s son’s birthday occurred in January 2015, Randall was hired as the photographer. A few months later, they began dating, and soon after, when they both had already come to the conclusion that they were destined to be together, they made their Red Carpet debut.
Although the Ocean 8 actress is renowned for rarely divulging details of her personal life, she spoke candidly about Randall during an appearance on Red Table Talk, calling him the “love of [her] life.”
Additionally, she commended her blended family while admitting that occasionally she wished she and her children had the same skin tone.. “To say that I wish our skins matched, sometimes I do. Because then, it would be easier on how people approach us,” Bullock said. “And I have the same feelings as a woman with brown skin and her babies or a white woman with white babies.”
She and Randall co-parented her two adopted children. “He sets the example I wish my children to follow,” the actress revealed.
According to a Randall source, “He is completely dedicated to Sandra and the children, and she is aware of this. The kids have called Bryan ‘Daddy’ for as long as I can remember, and it still makes him smile.”
Bullock revealed additional information about her personal life, including how she and Randall did not rush into marriage because their children came first. “I don’t need a paper to be a devoted partner, devoted mother,” she said. “I don’t need to be told to be ever-present in the hardest of times. I don’t need to be told to weather a storm with a good man.”
Bullock hasn’t released any statements in the media on the untimely death of her partner. Contributions to the Massachusetts General Hospital and the ALS Association have been encouraged by Randall’s family.
We sincerely apologize for your loss. Rest in peace, my dear.
