I am happy for Tyler as well! I still wish he and his relationship with Natalia Livingston (ex Emily, new Rebecca GH) would have survived…they were so good together..but congrats to him and Brie!

nooo, i was dreading this (for selfish reasons), i always hoped he & nat would get back together and live happily ever after like nikolas & emily never got to on GH! haha, i’m so pathetic. deep down somewhere i am happy for him…:P

I thought he was married to Vanessa Marcil, not Eva Longoria?

He was engaged to Vanessa in the 90s, but then married Eva a few years later.
