Sandra Bullock’s romance with Bryan Randall is on shaky ground and might need a “miracle” to work.
The Bird Box star, 59, and the photographer, 57, had a ‘period of reflection’ in 2022 during which they lived apart, and now the chances of reconciliation are ‘unlikely’ according to a source who spoke with We Weekly.
“The feeling is that Sandra may be hoping for some sort of miracle – that they’ll sort things out after this long period of reflection,” the insider added.
The source also said the actress – who was spotted with a mysterious handsome man in Los Angeles last month – and Bryan have been cordial during their on-and-off romance.
DailyMail.com has contacted representatives for Bullock for comment.

Since August 2015, the Oscar-winning actress – who is currently taking a break from her acting career to spend more time with her family – has enjoyed a relatively low-key relationship with the professional photographer.
The couple have no children together, but Bullock has two adopted children – son Louis, 13, and daughter Laila, 11 – and Bryan has an adult daughter named Skylar from a previous relationship.
Sandra was in the process of adopting her second child when things got serious with Bryan.
However, the couple would not be on the same wavelength when it comes to marriage.
In late 2022, it was reported that Bryan moved out of the couple’s house due to Sandra’s opposition to the marriage.
At the time, a source told Us Weekly that Bryan continued to be “very present in the children’s lives.”
“It’s well known that Bryan wanted to formalize things with Sandra, but she didn’t see the need to go that route. It became quite a problem over time,’ the source said, adding that Bullock, ‘didn’t need a piece of paper to plan a future and be happy, but he felt differently.
In February, it was reported that Bullock and Randall reconnected, after going their separate ways.

“(Last year) they were going through major issues and friends thought they weren’t going to make it,” a source said.
And while the break was “good” for the couple and they were getting better, the insider said some of the actress’ friends were worried that the “romantic spark” between Sandra and Bryan “seems to be gone.”
Although the couple have kept their romance very private, the big screen star gushed about her beau in 2021 on Jada Pinkett Smith Red table discussionwhere she also discussed her divorce from ex-husband Jesse James in 2010.
During the appearance, Bullock said, “I’m someone who’s been through divorce proceedings.”
“I found the love of my life,” she continued. “We share two beautiful children – three children, his eldest daughter. It’s the best thing ever.
Sandra met Bryan when she hired him as a photographer to take pictures at her son’s birthday and described him as a ‘saint’ after informing him she was adopting a second child as they “were not together for so long”.
“I said, ‘Do you remember that NDA you signed when you photographed my son? I said, “You know, that still stands.” He said “Why?” I said, “I’m taking a kid home when I come back from Toronto,” Sandra explained.
“He was so happy, but he was scared. I am a bulldozer. My life was already on the right track and here is this beautiful human being who wants nothing to do with my life, but the right human being to be there.
She also described her partner as “very Christian” and a great example for children. “I don’t always agree with him and he doesn’t always agree with me,” she said, adding, “But if they can pull it off and that’s where they feel drawn, it’s exactly the right parent to be in that position.’
The ex: Bullock was previously married to West Coast Choppers founder Jesse James, 54. Their five-year marriage imploded after his infidelity broke in 2010; Seen in 2010
Prior to her romance with Randall, Bullock was married to West Coast Choppers founder Jesse James, 54.
Their five-year marriage imploded after their infidelity broke in 2010.
Sandra and Jesse got married in 2005 and together they adopted their son Louis. However, shortly after the couple took the big step, news of their infidelity with tattooed model Michelle “Bombshell” McGee spread.
In April 2010, Jesse checked himself into a rehab facility in Arizona for sex addiction after apologizing profusely to Bullock, though that wasn’t enough to save the marriage – they divorced the following June.
