Gypsy Rose Blanchard was 23 years old when she was arrested in connection to the 2015 murder of her mom, Dee Dee Blanchard, alongside then-boyfriend, Nick Godejohn. While Gypsy spent the next eight years behind bars, with more than 250 men reaching out to her via prison mail, she found love with Louisiana native Ryan Anderson, and fans are curious if the couple is still together following her December 28, 2023, release.

Are Gypsy Rose Blanchard and Ryan Anderson Still Together?

Gypsy and Ryan are not together as of March 2024. Just three months after Gypsy’s prison release, she announced her separation from her husband on Facebook.

“People have been asking what is going on in my life,” she wrote on her private account on March 28, 2024, according to People. “Unfortunately my husband and I are going through a separation and I moved in with my parents home the bayou. I have the support of my family and friends to help guide me through this. I am learning to listen to my heart. Right now I need time to let myself find… who I am.”

Before Gypsy deleted her public Instagram account, she had shared a photo with Ryan on March 3, 2024. At the time, some fans were already speculating that there was trouble in paradise for the pair, although it’s unclear why those rumors started.

While neither Gypsy has not commented publicly on their separation at the time of publication, multiple reports hint at the reason why they split.

Gypsy recently told her close friends that Ryan had been “super argumentative” and made her “feel like she couldn’t do anything right” since her release from prison in December 2023, according to TMZ. The publication also reported that the amount of time Gypsy was spending with her father, Rod Blanchard, was making Ryan jealous and in return, he “made [Gypsy] feel guilty” about it.

Two days later, People reported that there was a fight that led to Gypsy and Ryan’s breakup.

Gypsy reportedly locked herself in the couple’s bathroom after Ryan began banging on the door one night, according to an article published by People on April 5, 2024. The reason behind Ryan’s alleged outburst hasn’t been specified.

“Let me in! Let me in!” Ryan allegedly screamed, according to Nadiya Vizier, a close friend of Gypsy’s, who spoke with People.

“He got in her face and screamed,” Nadiya said. “Gypsy said that she was afraid he was going to hit her. He didn’t — but that happened in the past with her mother. So, her first instinct was to tighten up and be prepared. But she got to safety and called her lawyer, too. Ryan is a big guy, and she told me it was really scary.”

Ryan broke his silence on their split on April 6, 2024, telling his TikTok followers that cameras captured his separation from Gypsy. “I want to thank everybody for the support. It’s been great. I’m just living my life, guys, but you all will see what really happened on Lifetime. We were filming a lot. So, stay tuned for that,” he said. “I will post more eventually.”

In Touch confirmed on April 8, 2024, that Gypsy filed for divorce from Ryan.

How Did Gypsy Rose Blanchard and Ryan Anderson Meet?

Gypsy met Ryan during her prison sentence after he reached out to her in a written letter. Despite the Louisiana native receiving hundreds of letters from different men, she found a connection with the special education teacher.

“Ryan’s from Louisiana… and I’m originally from Louisiana, and I saw that, I’m kinda like, ‘Oh, hey, someone from my home state!’ So I wrote him a letter back and we became friends,” Blanchard recalled, adding that she was “all alone” in prison. “And of course more than friends, and then now we’re married.”

Do Gypsy Rose Blanchard and Ryan Anderson Have Kids?

Gypsy and Ryan are not parents yet — but Gypsy previously admitted that she doesn’t have “any reservations” about having kids in a January 2024 interview.

“We both have talked about starting a family, we just don’t know when yet,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “My life is a little hectic right now. So, we’re just trying to take it day by day. We’re just trying to start off the marriage on a good foot before we bring kids into this situation right now.”

That same month, they expanded their family by adopting a puppy. “Ryan and I just wanted to get something that we can both kind of have to take care of and have as an addition to the family,” Gypsy explained at the time. “We’re not ready to have a baby yet, so this was the next best thing.”

Why Did Gypsy Rose Go to Prison?

Gypsy was sentenced to 10 years in prison for her involvement in the murder of her mother.

It’s believed that Dee Dee suffered from Munchausen syndrome by proxy, a mental disorder that caused the mother of one to fabricate Gypsy’s age and various medical ailments, including leukemia and muscular dystrophy, to gain sympathy and benefit from charitable organizations.

Gypsy was given special treatment due to her ailments, including being given free trips to Disneyland and having well-wishers pay the family’s bills.

Her then-boyfriend, Nick Godejohn, was convicted of first-degree murder for his role and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, plus an additional 25 years for armed criminal action in February 2019. For her part, Gypsy was sentenced to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to murder for her role in the killing in July 2016 but was later granted parole and released after serving 85 percent of her sentence.

Following Gypsy’s arrest, it was determined that her mother had falsified numerous medical diagnoses and the years of abuse her mother inflicted were deemed to be the motive in the June 2015 murder.
