Sandra Bullock’s sister has revealed the actress’ final hours with her long-term partner Bryan Randall before he died.
The 57-year-old ‘Oceans 8’ actress tragically lost her 57-year-old spouse to ALS, a condition he’d kept hidden for several years.
The actress’s last moments with her longtime companion Bryan Randall before his passing have been made public by Sandra Bullock’s sister.
The family stated, “Bryan made the conscious decision to keep his battle with ALS private, and those of us who carefully looked after him honored his request.”
The statement went on, “We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the unwavering medical professionals who supported us throughout the intricacies of this illness, as well as to the extraordinary nurses who became an essential part of our lives, frequently sacrificing their own families to be there for us.” “During this difficult time of mourning and trying to accept the harsh reality of saying goodbye to Bryan, we kindly request privacy.”
Gesine Bullock-Prado, Bullock’s sister, honored the gifted model-turned-photographer on Instagram and shared a unique look into the couple’s last moments.
Alongside a happy picture of Randall, Gesine wrote on Monday, August 7, “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.”
She added that Bullock had stayed at his side till Saturday, August 5, when he passed away.
“It’s unfortunate that ALS is a terrible illness, but at least my sister and the team of nurses she put together to help her take care of him at home are the best caregivers for him,” Gesine went on. “Bryan, rest peacefully.”
Randall’s family revealed that he had been battling the illness, which kills nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, for a while before announcing his passing on Monday.
When Randall shot Bullock’s son Louis’ birthday celebration in January 2015, the 59-year-old Bullock got to know him. The pair started dating a few months later, and that year they made their red carpet debut.
The “A Time to Kill” actress claimed that Randall was the “love of her life” on “Red Table Talk” in December 2021, despite her preference for solitude in her personal life.
The “Lost City” actress at the time praised their blended family, which consisted of Skylar, Randall’s daughter, and Louis and Laila, Sandra’s two children.
About her co-parenting relationship with Randall, she said, “He sets the example I wish my children to follow.”
Bullock hasn’t said anything in public about her partner’s passing as of yet.
Randall’s family has requested donations to the Massachusetts General Hospital and the ALS Association in place of flowers.
During this trying time, our prayers and thoughts are with Sandra Bullock and the friends and family of Bryan Randall.
