Started From Season 1, Now We’re Here: Trista and Ryan Sutter Are Still Cute as Ever

Reality stars Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter were the first couple ever to come from The Bachelorette, and they are a total success story. The duo got married in 2003 — less than a year after meeting on the show — and haven’t looked back. Fans will get to rewatch Tristan and Ryan’s love story on July 6 during The Bachelor: Greatest Seasons Ever, and it’s sure to make you swoon. She dished exclusively to Life & Style about why she adores being a prized member of Bachelor Nation.

Although things worked out amazing for the happy couple, the former Miami Heat dancer definitely had some nerves beforehand. ”Dear Lord, please give me and [Ryan] the strength to survive Monday when they re-air the first [season of The Bachelor], my season of [The Bachelorette] and our wedding,” she wrote on Instagram.

She continued, “Please give me the sense of humor to laugh at my voice and my fashion sense, the ability to spread love when the haters come out of the woodwork, the grace to forgive myself (again) for any regrets or mistakes I made, and the intelligence to remember that it all worked out and I’m one lucky wife and mom. That about sums it up.”

In all seriousness, Trista gushed over the “beautiful life” she built with the firefighter. We would say she killed it as the first leading lady. Keep scrolling to see what Trista and Ryan are up to today!
