Neither Ryan nor his wife Nikki has ever talked about how the two first came across. However, some reliable online sources suggest they met back in the mid-2000s. So, they were most likely in a relationship for years before they walked down the aisle.

How Many Children Do They Have?

It was really a gut-wrenching time for the duo when they learned their to-be-born second child Bennett had multiple heart issues. Nikki was just five months pregnant with Bennett when they learned about the defects. After a series of check-ups, doctors gave only a little hope of his survival.

The child was born on Sept. 20 and the very next day, DeLoach and her husband Ryan headed to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA). They weren’t sure that the doctor could save Bennett’s life but the cardiothoracic surgeon Vaughn Starnes did what seemed to be an impossible task on 25th Sept.

A week after the successful procedure, the actress opened up all about the terrific moment in an exclusive interview with People.
