Who is Gypsy Rose Blanchard's husband?

Blanchard's husband is Ryan Anderson, and the two were married in 2022. Blanchard announced at the time that the two were "in love," but the two weren't married long before things started to get a little bumpy.

Blanchard has had a number of different relationships during her time in prison, and has publicly admitted that it can be difficult to keep relationships going against the backdrop of prison.

Who is Ryan Anderson?

Ryan Scott Anderson is a teacher based out of Lake Charles, Louis. Just four months after the two got married, Blanchard announced that she had decided to split from her new husband.

"It is with a heavy heart that this morning I made a decision to go ahead and file for annulment and end my marriage with Ryan," she wrote in a letter to her family.

"My marriage ends with no fault to either of us. I believe we are just in different places in our lives, and find it too difficult to walk a path together, at this point," the letter continued.

Although this announcement seemed to suggest that there would be no happily ever after, the two eventually reconciled, which Blanchard's family confirmed after she received flirtatious emails from Bachelor star Josh Seiter, who claimed to be in a relationship with her on social media.

"We are fully aware of Joshua Seiter contacting Gypsy. We want him to know that her husband, family, friends and loved ones are fully prepared to support her in every way," Vickie Lewis, a friend of the family, wrote in April. "She doesn't need a man because she is happily married to Ryan and in love. She is very busy preparing for her pending parole."

"She does not need the distractions," the letter continued. "He is still attempting to email her and needs to know he will not get another response. He will not be allowed to visit and has been blocked so he need not try. In other words, she has no need for him to contact her again."
