Sandra Bullock is getting major props for taking good care of her longtime boyfriend, Bryan Randall, as he battled ALS to the very end.
Sandra’s sister, Gesine Bullock-Prado, posted an emotional message on Instagram, praising the actress for being there during Bryan’s private, 3-year battle with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis — a nervous system disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord.
Gesine started off by saying she’s convinced Bryan is already casting his lure at the best fishing spot in heaven, teaming with salmon.
She then addressed Bryan’s ALS fight, pointing out it’s a “cruel disease,” but “there is some comfort in knowing he had the best of caretakers in my amazing sister (Sandra) and the band of nurses she assembled who helped her look after him in their home.”
Bryan died Saturday at 57. His family announced his passing Monday, thanking all the doctors who treated Bryan’s health issues.
The model-turned-shutterbug first crossed paths with Sandra in 2015 when she hired him to photograph her son Louis‘ birthday party. The two soon began dating and came out as a couple later that year.
In 2021, Sandra described Bryan as the love of her life during an appearance on the podcast, “Red Table Talk.” But, last year, rumors circulated the pair had hit a rough patch, although it might have been due to Bryan’s illness.
