“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 confirmed to People.
“Bryan chose early to keep his journey with ALS private and those of us who cared for him did our best to honour 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.
“At this time we ask for privacy to grieve and to come to terms with the impossibility of saying goodbye to Bryan,” the statement from his “loving family” ended.
ALS is a rare incurable neurological disease that affects motor neurons, weakening muscles and impacting physical function, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders.
In a December 2021 interview, Bullock called Randall the “love of her life” explaining she did not need to marry to be “a devoted partner”.
“I found the love of my life. We share two beautiful children— three children, (Randall’s) older daughter. It’s the best thing ever,” she told Red Table Talk.
“I don’t wanna say do it like I do it, but I don’t need a paper to be a devoted partner and devoted mother.
“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.”
The actress adopted her two children, Louis in 2010 and Laila in 2015.
Bullock, best known for hit blockbusters including The Proposal, The Blind Side and Miss Congeniality, began dating Randall in 2015.
He was the photographer for Bullock’s son Louis’s birthday party.
Their relationship was taken public later that year when Bullock brought Randall to Jennifer Anniston and Justin Theroux’s wedding.
