Now that they have answers, Trista says she is relieved, “It’s been hard. It’s a really difficult thing to see the person you love most in the world struggling. And he’s a big, strong guy, and oof — to see him get emotional and feel hopeless, in that all I could really do is advocate for him, so that’s what I did.”

Ryan and Trista, were married after meeting on the first season of “The Bachelorette.”
