Sandra Bullock and Late Boyfriend Bryan Randall Had a ‘Happy Life’ Together: See Their Rare Photos

It wasn’t often fans could spot Sandra Bullock out and about with her longtime boyfriend, Bryan Randall, before he died in August 2023 after his battle with ALS. Before his passing, the pair’s rare photos we do have of the adorable couple prove they lived a “happy life” together.

The late photographer was the Bird Box star’s “greatest supporter, ” an insider exclusively told Closer Weekly in August 2020. “They are best friends and partners.”

Aside from their enviable romance, Sandra and Bryan were over the moon about raising her adopted son, Louis, and adopted daughter Laila. “The kids consider Bryan their father and he calls them his children,” the source dished. “They’re a happy little family.”

The Hollywood superstar and the Los Angeles-based photojournalist were first linked in 2015. At the time, Sandra and Bryan met when a friend suggested he shoot photos at Louis’ 5th birthday party. Sparks flew between the two and the rest was history.

After Bryan came into the Proposal star’s life, he did an incredible job filling in as the dad of Louis and Laila. Because the two didn’t “play any games” when it came to their family, Sandra and Bryan’s bond continued to get stronger.

“They’re adults, they mesh really well together and they’re usually always on the same page when it comes to their relationship and raising children,” a separate insider revealed to Closer in September 2019. “What you see is what you get.”

Even though Sandra and the former fashion model — who shared his eldest daughter, Skylar, with ex Janine Staten — never tied the knot, they didn’t need a title to define their love for each other. In fact, they were extremely “committed” and Bryan even “proudly wears” a wedding band on his ring finger.

“In their eyes and their kids’ minds, they’re parents and they’re as settled down as any couple they know,” the source explained. “Sandra gets the curiosity, but they’re tired of the questions. They love each other, and that’s all that matters.”

Because the Blind Side actress and the doting dad shared a genuine connection, they didn’t feel the pressure to flaunt their “relationship status,” a third insider dished to Closer in June 2019. “Sandra and Bryan consider themselves a solid, committed, family unit. It’s pretty clear what they have is a very special bond. There’s no doubt that he’s Louis and Laila’s dad.”

Bryan and Sandra loved each other until his last days when he lost his battle with ALS and privately died in August 2023.

“It is with great sadness that we share that on August 5, Bryan Randall passed away peacefully after a three-year battle with ALS,” his family shared at the time. “Bryan chose early to keep his journey with ALS private and those of us who cared for him did our best to honor his request.”
