Gypsy and Ryan obtained a marriage license in Chillicothe, Missouri, on June 27, 2022, and held a small ceremony with no guests on July 21, 2022.

Shortly after she was released from prison on parole, she told PEOPLE Magazine that the two planned on having a “reception/redo wedding with all of our family and our friends and the dress and the cake and everything because we deserve that. I deserve that. He deserves that.”

“Our prison wedding was just something where we can make our vows to each other. It was something that meant something to us,” she continued. “And I think the party is kind of for everybody else and us, but mostly for everybody else.”

In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, Gypsy Rose Blanchard told the outlet that she “doesn’t regret the relationship ” with Ryan Anderson, but she does “regret getting married in prison so fast.”

The two began talking in 2020, but Gypsy Rose and Ryan didn’t meet in person until July 2021—one year before they tied the knot.

Gypsy then revealed that the two are in the early stages of their divorce, not even having their first court date yet. While the two lived together for three months after her release, the divorce filing, obtained by CourtTV, says that the couple separated on March 25 and have lived apart since then.

The filing also states that Gypsy Rose requests that the court order Ryan to pay her spousal support, “because the Petitioner is in need and the Defendant has an ability to pay and she is not at fault in the dissolution of the marriage.”

It also states Ryan “is not entitled to final spousal support as he is at fault in the dissolution of the marriage.”

Gypsy Rose Blanchard spent eight and a half years in prison after pleading guilty to co-conspiring the murder of her mom, Dee Dee Blanchard, who falsely asserted various severe health conditions, leading to numerous unnecessary diagnoses and medical treatments as it was later revealed Gypsy was not ill.

Reports claim that her mother fabricated her symptoms as she had Munchausen syndrome by proxy, a mental disorder where a caregiver exaggerates or induces health problems in someone under their care to gain attention and sympathy.

What Did Dee Dee Blanchard Claim Her Daughter Have?

Gypsy was still a baby when Dee Dee first claimed she had sleep apnea. By the time Gypsy was 8 years old, Dee Dee insisted she had leukemia and muscular dystrophy, requiring the use of a wheelchair and a feeding tube. Over the years, Dee Dee added seizures, asthma, and hearing and visual impairments to the list of medical issues she alleged her daughter had.

After finding out the truth and realizing she didn’t actually need the treatments, such as a feeding tube or a wheelchair, Gypsy felt the only way out was to kill her mom — a plan that she and her then-boyfriend, Nicholas Godejohn, carried out in 2015.

She was sentenced to 10 years in prison and was released on parole in December 2023 after serving 85% of her sentence. Godejohn remains in prison and is serving life without the eligibility of parole.
