Ryan made a splash on the show as soon as he appeared on-screen, as he clashed with Tamra Judge over rumors she had heard about him at her former business, CUT Fitness, and as some of the other ladies expressed doubts about his intentions. 

However, after deciding to drown out all all of the noise, Ryan and Jennifer announced their engagement in April 2024.

Ryan Boyajian and Jennifer Pedranti's relationship timeline

The yoga studio owner first began dating Ryan in September 2020, while she was still legally married to her ex-husband, William "Will" Pedranti

While speaking with The Daily Dish in October 2023, Ryan shared some insight into how his relationship with Jennifer progressed after initially meeting at CUT Fitness. 

"Jenn and I, in the first maybe six months of me being at the gym, it went from 'I don't know her' to 'Hello,' 'Good morning,' 'Goodbye,' to then we started to communicate," he explained about their emotional affair, which they both have maintained did not turn physical until after Jennifer and Will were fully separated.   

Jennifer then began filming RHOC Season 17 in 2021, which happened to be the same year that Ryan purchased an engagement ring.

While chatting with The Daily Dish, Ryan said that the drama surrounding his relationship only brought him closer to Jennifer. "The silver lining in the season is that everything has only brought Jenn and I's relationship closer," he said while reflecting on Season 17 in the fall of 2023.

Fast-forward to April 2024, and, during a trip to the Bahamas — a place that the two take their respective children to each summer — Ryan popped the question. The ring he chose for Jennifer featured a cushion-cut diamond and five total carats worth of diamonds.

Gushing about the sparkler, Jennifer told PEOPLE,  "This is the second marriage for Ryan and I, so we would talk about, 'Oh, maybe if we get married one day, we'll just do a small tattoo on our left ring finger where only we know what it means.'"

"And then this guy proposes with a ring that just knocks my socks off," she continued.

Ryan Boyajian and Jennifer Pedranti's blended family includes seven kids

As Jennifer has talked about on RHOC, she shares five children with her ex-husband. Before their split, Jennifer and William adopted their son, Dominic, after fostering him for 11 months. 

In addition to Dominic, Will and Jennifer share Everleigh, Dawson, Grayson, and Harrison.

Ryan is a dad to two kids, Cole and Tyler, himself. 

In November 2023, Ryan celebrated his son Cole's 20th birthday. "Happy Birthday Cole — Keep Doin You ALWAYS. We’re GRATEFUL that today and everyday we get to celebrate you — You embody love, kindness and I’m proud of the man you continue to grow into with each and every passing year," Ryan wrote in the caption of his post. "I Love You and I’m BLESSED to call you my son and my best friend."

Ryan's daughter, Tyler, turned 18 in July 2023.

"Sis. How Did The Last 18-years Go By So Fast??? You Are My Angel, My Little Girl And My Best Friend. You Have Grown Into The Most AMAZING Young Woman. And You Continue To Show Us All The True Definition Of Love. Your Star Shines Brighter And Brighter With Each Passing Year," he wrote on Instagram. "I Am So BLESSED And GRATEFUL To Be Your Dad. Happy 18th Birthday Tyler. I Love You."

How Jennifer Pedranti's ex-husband feels about Ryan Boyajian

During an appearance on an episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen in July 2023, Jennifer revealed that her now-ex, Will, is supportive of her relationship with Ryan. 

“He’s OK with Ryan and I. He’s in a relationship [and] happier than he’s ever been,” Jennifer said on the show. “He just is very private. He’s very private.”
