Ryan Eggold’s Fact Sheet

Is Ryan Eggold Married or Dating Anyone?

The long and short of it is that Ryan Eggold has never been married to anyone. But, as you probably expect, he has been linked with a number of dates. But then, these links always turn out to be hardly any more than rumors because neither Ryan nor the speculated dates ever confirmed any of them.

On the other hand, it’s possible that his taciturn approach to the question is just to keep his private life really private. So, here is what we know about the rumors that have trailed the actor’s romantic affairs.

To be sure, Ryan has not kept people completely in the dark about his romantic affairs. It’s just that he is never specific about it. For instance, sometime in 2008, he once mentioned about dating an actress. Just that.

He left everyone in suspense about who exactly the actress was. On another occasion, he mentioned that he owed his foray into film directing to an ex-girlfriend. Again, he gave us no pleasure of a name or any other clue whatsoever.

However, it was not long before people began to connect the dots, leading to Ryan Eggold getting linked to the actress-model Ashley Michele Greene. Ashley is the actress who portrayed ‘Alice Cullen’ in the 2008 romance fantasy film series Twilight Saga. Was this the actress Ryan mentioned about dating?

There was no way we could be absolutely certain about this. But, virtually everyone thought she was because eagle-eyed fellows succeeded in digging up some of their photos together where they were all cuddled up in a manner that showed it was far more than just casual affairs.

However, not long after, Ashley and Ryan were no longer seen together anymore and so everyone presumed they had broken up finally. This received a measure of confirmation when a fling began between Ashley and the Australian TV personality, Paul Khoury, later on.

There was also a time it was rumored that Ryan Eggold was seeing his The Blacklist co-star, Megan Boone. It was even said that Megan was pregnant for him. The rumor mill got even more daring by claiming they had a secret wedding. But no one has ever really confirmed this.

However, we got to know why the rumor escalated to such a crescendo. It was due to a statement credited to Megan where she went as far as saying she loved Ryan “so much”. She also referred to him as one of her “closest friends”. What did she mean by this? Were they romantic partners or just friends? Whatever happened, they were no longer to be seen together with time.

There is yet another date that Ryan Eggold has been linked with. She is the actress-singer Hailey Loraine Keeling (known professionally as Hailey Bennet). If this rumor held true, then, they obviously broke up because they were never to be seen together any longer.

Does Ryan Eggold Have Any Child?

Ok, we’ve known that Ryan Eggold is not married and has never been married. But has he fathered any child that could be a surefire proof that he actually dated some of those ladies he is linked to?

Indeed, after doing so well in fatherly roles on set, people think he must be a father in real life. But is he? Again, we have not found any proof that he is.

In fact, he gave a hint that he has no kid in a 2019 interview that he granted at a Today Parenting Team event held in New York City. When asked if he would want to have his own kids after playing fatherly roles so well on set, he answered in affirmation and eagerly too.

He also mentioned that he likes playing with kids in real life. From this, we have been able to deduce that he has no kids but that it is not by choice. So, we look forward to him getting married someday or at least, having a baby mama.
