A private romance. Sandra Bullock and Bryan Randall quietly began dating in 2015 after he was hired to take photos at her son Louis’ birthday party. In the years that followed, they largely kept their relationship under wraps as they raised their children together. Get details on whether they were still together at the time of his death.

In 2010, the Bird Box actress adopted her first child, Louis. Sandra was ecstatic to become a mom to her precious little boy.
“No one understands the shift in priorities about having a child in your life … until you have a child in your life,” she said during an August 2010 interview on Today after adopting Louis. “It naturally shifts … he showed up and now, Louis’ got the stage.”
When Sandra was planning Louis’ birthday party five years later, a friend suggested hiring Bryan as the photographer for the celebration. They hit it off and attended Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux’s wedding together in August 2015. That year, Sandra became a mom for the second time when she adopted her daughter, Laila.
Bryan grew very close to both of the kids, stepping up to raise them with the Academy Award winner. The former model is also a dad to his daughter, Skylar Staten Randall, from a previous relationship.
“The kids are growing up so fast and Bryan couldn’t be more involved in their upbringing,” an insider told Closer in June 2019. “The kids adore Bryan and of course, Sandra still pinches herself that she’s been so lucky finding Bryan. They prefer private time, like hiking with the kids, exploring nature.”

Prior to meeting Bryan, Sandra was married to Jesse James from 2005 to 2010. The Gravity star looked toward finding love in the future after her divorce from the TV personality.
