Ryan's fans think he would make a great dad 

"I just want to say, happy third anniversary to Shayna," he said. "It is our third time together. So we've gotten together, broken up, gotten together, broken up.

"This is number three of being together. So we're celebrating as well. It's an eight-year run, but it's our third run together. So we celebrate each trial."

Shayna on the other hand hinted that Ryan's lack of commitment was the reason the relationship ultimately failed.
