After losing touch whilst growing up, Tatum and Ryan came face to face at a family wedding when they were both 19. Tatum had a boyfriend at the time, but she did notice how handsome Ryan looked.
Months later when she no longer had a boyfriend, Tatum’s best friend Lindsay encouraged her to contact him and the rest is history! They dated for three years, before Ryan told one of Tatum’s best friends, Tania, he was planning to propose. Tania helped him plan the proposal, and then on Christmas morning, Ryan asked Tatum to be his wife!
He came to pick her up for church and presented her with a card which read inside ‘There is nothing I want more this Christmas’, to which he’d added ‘than to make you my wife’. He got down on one knee and presented her with a beautiful ring. Of course Tatum said ‘yes’!
