Ryan and Shayna first met through friends in 2013 and began dating soon after. They have publicly gone through a very up and down relationship with their first split happening in 2014. They quickly got back together and ended up taking things to the next level when they moved in together in May 2017. In Feb. 2019, they split again but reassured fans that they would stay friends and by summer of that same year, they were spotted aboard a yacht during a vacation together in Positano, Italy, which led to an official reconciliation in Sept.
Ryan has been open about his relationship with Shayna and the struggles they’ve ensued over the years. In May, on their third anniversary, he talked about his now-former love on Live with Kelly and Ryan. “I just want to say, happy third anniversary to Shayna,” he said on the show. “It is our third time together. So we’ve gotten together, broken up, gotten together, broken up. This is number three of being together. So we’re celebrating as well.”

Kelly went on to confirm that he wasn’t talking about their “relationship anniversary”, which goes back eight years, but rather the third-try anniversary. “No, it’s an eight-year run, but it’s our third run together,” Ryan further explained. “So we celebrate each trial.” After Kelly cheekily said, “Third time’s a charm!”, he admitted that although “nothing’s perfect, you just keep trying until you get it right.”
