Sandra Bullock’s longtime partner, Bryan Randall, has died at the age of 57.
Randall’s family confirmed the tragic news in a statement shared with Page Six on Monday.
“It is with great sadness that we share that on Aug. 5, Bryan Randall passed away peacefully after a three-year battle with ALS,” his family shared. “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.”
“We are immensely grateful to the tireless doctors who navigated the landscape of this illness with us and to the astounding nurses who became our roommates, often sacrificing their own families to be with ours,” it continued.
The family is asking for “privacy to grieve and to come to terms with the impossibility of saying goodbye to Bryan.”
The photographer first met the “Blind Side” actress at her son Louis’s birthday in January 2015. The pair immediately hit it off and started dating soon after.
Yet it wasn’t until October of that year that pair stepped out for their first red carpet appearance together at the premiere of Bullock’s film “Our Brand Is Crisis.”
While they kept most of their romance out of the public eye, Bullock said during a December 2021 appearance on “Red Table Talk” that she had “found the love of my life.”
“We share two beautiful children— three children, [Randall’s] older daughter. It’s the best thing ever,” Bullock, who is mom to son Louis, 13, and daughter Laila, 10, said at the time.
Meanwhile, Randall has adult daughter named Skylar Staten Randall from a previous relationship.
During that same interview, the Oscar winner opened up about parenting with Randall.
“He’s the example that I would want my children to have,” she said. “I have a partner who’s very Christian and there are two different ways of looking at things. I don’t always agree with him, and he doesn’t always agree with me. But he is an example even when I don’t agree with him.”
“I’m stubborn but sometimes I need to sit back and listen and go, ‘You’re saying it differently but we mean exactly the same thing,’” the “Bird Box” actress added. “It’s hard to co-parent because I just want to do it myself.”
Prior to his passing, some sources speculated that the pair had broken up as they hadn’t been seen together in public for years — yet this was never confirmed by either Bullock or Randall.
