Sandra Bullock's relationship with boyfriend Bryan Randall is better than ever

Sandra Bullock is happier than ever.

The "Ocean's 8" star may have had a tough road of headlines following the cheating scandal that rocked her marriage to Jesse James, but she is reportedly putting it all behind her.

"Life after Jesse [James] was really tough. She was embarrassed by what he did and in ways blamed herself at the time (she knows now it wasn't her at all)," an insider told E! News. "She did consider Jesse a father to Louis, so that was one of the hardest parts of breaking up. Jesse was there for her through the whole adoption process. She now knows she is much better off and everything happens for a reason."

The stunning actress, 52, who is now a parent to two adorable kiddos, Louis and Laila, has been busy working on movies like "Gravity," "Ocean's 8," and "Minions" and has also been spending much more time focused on family.

She's also been keeping her love life out of the spotlight and has had a budding romance with photographer Bryan Randall.

"She is an independent mom and also found a great man that loves her and her kids unconditionally. Her children are her life and always have been her top priority," the insider explained to E!. "She lived just for her child Louis for a while and stayed away from dating to focus on herself and Louis. It took Sandy some time to actually open up to a man, trust and love again."

Fans are likely to see America's Sweetheart happy again after so many years, and according to insiders, Randall is part of the family and is a big part of keeping her kids happy, as well.

"They are perfect," the source says. "They have been both working so it was hard for them to see each other as often as they normally do, but while Sandra works Bryan helps out with the kids. He is like the kids' dad. He is a great guy and makes Sandra really happy."
