The Bachelorette’s Trista and Ryan Sutter are what the franchise would refer to as the defintion of couple goals. Bachelor Nation even notes, “Trista and Ryan’s love story is synonymous with that of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.” She set the standard for Bachelorettes to come and is viewed as the “Fairy Godmother” of the Bachelorette arm of the franchise.” Hers are some pretty big shoes to fill for the other leading ladies!
The pair met on the very first season of The Bachelorette, with Trista as the lead and, according to US Weekly, they “hit it off immediately.” Adding, “[o]n the finale of the show, they got engaged and one year later, got married in a TV special.” They were the first couple from the franchise to tie the knot on camera and since their televised wedding, Trista and Ryan seem stronger than ever (via Bachelor Nation). They currently reside in Vail, Colo. with their two kids, son Maxwell Alston and daughter Blakesley Grace — the “very first Bachelor Nation babies” (via US Weekly).

Here's what we know about Trista Sutter's Bachelorette success story
Bachelorette couple Trista and Ryan Sutter’s relationships is one of the longest (and strongest!) in the franchise’s decades-long history. However, even though Trista and Ryan have a solid marriage, the two have faced their fair share of hardships. US Weekly reported that, after meeting and falling in love on TV in 2003, the couple dealt with infertility issues for “nearly two years.” Fortunately, they were able to finally get pregnant and now have two beautiful children.
Despite their infertility troubles, the couple remained strong. US Weekly added that, in 2013, Trista and Ryan “celebrated their 10-year anniversary by renewing their vows with their children by their sides.” It even aired on ABC’s The Bachelor: Bachelor Love Stories.
Up until November 2020, it appeared that the couple was doing just fine. However, the day after Thanksgiving, Trista took to Instagram to reveal that Ryan was sadly experiencing some mysterious health-related issues. “We’ve been struggling for months. Struggling to get answers. And this week, we got an answer that would normally be the best answer of all good answers. We found out that Ryan doesn’t have cancer,” Trista explained. “But part of us was wanting a diagnosis. Wanting to be able to fight for him to be cured instead of fighting for an answer,” she added. “We lived a fairy tale on TV and have a great life for all intents and purposes, but answers would be nice.”
We and the rest of Bachelor Nation will be keeping this Bachelorette couple in our thoughts and prayers on Ryan’s journey to recovery.
