"The first time I held her, I just looked at her, like, wow. You are my daughter. And I'm going to take care of you for the rest of your life, whether you like or not," Ryan said on the episode. "Just know that my love for her and my love for Emilia and our family now, because that's what we have, knows no bounds. And more than anything, it gave me a new meaning for life. Everything I do going forward is going to be for her."
The new father expanded more about meeting Zena for the first time in an Instagram post, writing, "This was my first time holding her in my arms and I had so much going through my head and heart. I didn’t know what to say or do. All I knew was that she was everything I wanted with my Puffer. I love you so much Baby Z."
