Who Is Gypsy Rose's Husband?

Ryan Scott Anderson, 37 of Lake Charles, Louisiana is a special education teacher.

Anderson met Gypsy Rose Blanchard, now Gypsy Rose Anderson, during the pandemic in 2020.

With work almost at a standstill, he had a co-worker at the time who had just watched The Tiger King on Netflix and wanted to write Joe Exotic a letter.

According to, Anderson told his co-worker -

"I'll tell you what, if you write him, I'll write Gypsy Rose Blanchard.' And I had watched her documentary Mommy Dead and Dearest, like three years before that.

And then The Act had came out and I've never watched The Act, but I remember my friends talking about The Act and I was like, I'll watch the documentary again. So it was kind of fresh on my mind."

To his surprise, within a few weeks, he heard back from Gypsy Rose.

Due to the pandemic, Blanchard and Anderson weren't able to meet in person until a year after they began emailing one another.

According to, Anderson has a child from a previous marriage.

Anderson is 5 years older than Gypsy, who is 32-years-old.

On July 22, 2022, Anderson and Blanchard were married at Chillicothe Correctional Center with no guests.

The two were able to work things out and say they plan on having a wedding reception and celebration soon "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" Gypsy tells
