Sandra Bullock is struggling after the loss of her long-time partner Bryan Randall. Randall passed away in August after a hard fought battle against ASL, a debilitating disease that devastated those suffering. According to a source close to Bullock, the Blind Side actress is reportedly keeping herself together for the sake of her children.
“The last few years have been incredibly stressful and heartbreaking for her — and Sandra hasn’t yet fully processed everything — but she’s slowly learning to manage her grief,” the insider noted.
Bullock has two kids Louis and Laila, both of them adopted and both of them raised with Randall in their lives. In March 2022 Bullock announced that she would step away from the silver screen in order to focus more on her home and family life. While she did not name Randall’s condition as a factor into her decision, Bullock did reveal that she wanted to be “in the place that makes [her] happiest.”
“I take my job very seriously when I’m at work,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “And I just want to be 24/7 with my babies and my family.”
A source close to the family revealed how the family is left to cope following their devastating loss. “They’re all in therapy, and Sandra encourages them to talk about Bryan often, to keep his memory alive.”
“It’s still very raw,” the insider noted as the holiday seasons approach and the family will have to face the days without their beloved family members. “She appreciates all the love from fans and friends, but right now her focus is on her family.”
