The Bachelorette: Trista and Ryan Celebrate 5 Years Together
Whenever we start to feel bitter and cynical about couples surviving on The Bachelor or Bachelorette, there’s always that one ray of hope: Ryan and Trista Sutter. Trista became ABC’s first Bachelorette, after being dumped by Alex Michel on The Bachelor. That heartbreak ended up benefiting her in the long run, as it allowed her to meet Ryan, who would become her husband. The two married in 2003 and welcomed baby Max into the world last summer. The pair have become the poster children for The Bachelor and Bachelorette series, and seem to be very happy together. This week, it’s National Romance Week, and to mark the occasion, the couple stepped back into the spotlight to christen a cruise ship and celebrate a milestone.

"Princess Cruises has long stood for romance and reconnection, and so we're delighted to have Trista and Ryan christen Ruby Princess as they celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary," said Jan Swartz, senior vice president for Princess Cruises. "While slightly unconventional, their courtship and marriage was exciting to watch as it unfolded, and we think their fascinating love story epitomizes our inaugural theme of celebrating romantic moments and milestones."

"We're incredibly honored to be invited to be the godparents of Ruby Princess," Trista told reporters. "It's hard to believe that it's been five years since we got married. This is a wonderful way to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and also to remind people about the importance of marking not only the key milestones in a relationship, but also making time to incorporate romance into our everyday lives. We are so excited to be part of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!"

The Ruby Princess holds more than 3,000 passengers and includes several restaurants, a piazza-style atrium with street entertainers, and a relaxing oasis just for adults. Ryan and Trista were on hand, celebrating their five-year wedding anniversary. The cruise ship’s theme is centered around romantic moments and milestones, so it was definitely a perfect match.
