Six years of wedded bliss is something to savor in any context, but in the world of reality television it is a particularly impressive milestone. For Bachelorette alums Ryan and Trista Sutter — parents to Maxwell Alston, 2, and Blakesley Grace, 8 ½ months — the big day was celebrated in a big way.

“We actually got a babysitter, which we never do: Max’s teacher at school,” Trista tells Inside TV. “It’s just a two-day toddler program.”

“She came over and had story time for the kids. We went out and just went to dinner and a movie. It was fabulous.”

Ryan continues to earn rave reviews from Trista, who calls her husband “so much fun” as a dad. His enthusiasm has kicked into high gear now that Blakesley is of an age to play because, Trista says, Ryan “wants to get down and dirty with her.” She explains,

“He wants to be able to take her out in the snow, and teach her how to go sledding, build snowmen, and go skiing. He is…always really lively with them. Also calming. Blakesley was crying, and he was trying to soothe her and be there for her.”

Those are precisely the moments Trista says she enjoys most as a mom. “Not that I ever want my child to hurt, but if Max is like, ‘Mommy, mommy’ just knowing that I can be that person for him and be there for him,” she continues, “is the absolute best thing that has ever happened to me.”

Blakesley also has a special way of warming mom’s heart. Trista adds,

“Everyday, I love walking in and seeing my baby girl smiling from ear-to-ear for me in the morning. I love getting hugs.”
