Actress Sandra Bullock marked what would have been her late partner Bryan Randall’s 58th birthday by spreading his ashes in a river, four months after his death.
The Gravity star scattered Randall’s ashes on Snake River in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, alongside her sister Gesine Bullock-Prado, who shared a post on Instagram marking the occasion.
“Happy birthday, Bry. Sandy brought you to the river, just as she promised,” the caption read.
Randall, who had dated Bullock since 2015, died on August 5 following a private three-year battle with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
“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 shared in a statement.
“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,” his family added.
Bullock, 59, first met Randall, a model-turned-photographer, when he photographed her son Louis’s birthday in January 2015.
The Ocean’s 8 star shared her joy with the relationship during a 2021 appearance on Jada Pinkett-Smith’s Red Table Talk, saying 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 said.
“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.”
