Woman’s Day online can exclusively reveal that the 51-year-old actress took the plunge at the weekend and was introduced to her new beau's parents.
After speaking to members of Bryan Randall’s family, we can also confirm that Sandra fell in love with the professional photographer when she hired him to take snaps at her son Louis’ birthday party in January.
According to family insider Daniel Lindquist, who was once engaged to Bryan’s sister and remains close with her, former model Bryan proudly introduced Sandra to his mum Evie and Dad Gary over the Labor Day holiday weekend in Los Angeles. It’s a telling sign that, for the first time in five years, Sandra is finally ready to fall in love again.
“Nobody has met her yet, so it will be the first time for everyone,” says Daniel, who adds that while his former fiancée Darbi Randall wasn’t invited to the gathering, Bryan’s brother Kevin and his wife were on hand to welcome Sandra to the family.
Sandra's chequered relationship history has been well-documented– including her heartbreaking split from husband Jesse James after claims he cheated on her – but Daniel insists that Bryan would never hurt her.
“He doesn’t care about being famous. He wants to have a life partner, that’s it,” he says. “Bryan sticks with one person if he can. After a failed relationship with a younger woman, he’s with someone his own age so they’ve got the same reference points.”
It’s been reported that Sandra met Bryan at Louis’ 5th birthday party at her Beverly Hills home – rumours that Daniel has now confirmed.
“Bryan was hired as the photographer and ended up being her boyfriend, what are the chances?” he says.
A separate source confirms to Woman’s Day that Evie and Gary were “really excited to meet Sandra”, adding, “[Bryan is] truly smitten and the long weekend is the perfect time to bring everyone together.”
