Ryan Takes Time off To Be Dad

Ryan has always been a loving father in our eyes even if he may not have been the most faithful husband. For the first time since his split with Reese he is opening up about life without her. At a press event for his new film Breach, Ryan spoke out about going through the most difficult time in his life. His simple solution to the sad time is making Ava and Deacon his number one priority. Here's more:

"I'm not a perfect person, but I'm not guilty of a lot of the things I have been accused of. My priority is and always has been the health and safety of my family."

"I acknowledge that the successes and the opportunities I've had recently have been the best of my career," he said. "I've got to say it's the last thing on my mind right now, considering what I'm going through in my personal life, but I definitely appreciate the opportunities."

But now, he said, he's ready to focus on his family: "I did three movies in the last year and a half and I'm going to take a good long break and be a dad. So that's No. 1 on my mind right now."

Ahh... makes you feel kinda sorry for the guy. Especially since Reese is absolutely glowing post break-up. At least Reese and Ryan have been able to keep it civil for the kids.

He's still there for them. Good on him. I think he might get back with reese though. I think there's a chance they might work things out between them. I hope they do.

"I think, maybe for the general public it's not quite as scary that blood thirsty satanist were out murdering children as it is too believe that parents are actually murdering thier own children." ~Damien Echols~ Oh Yeah, he's a good father too.

They are still young.. and were considerably young ,in Hollywood, to get married. I hope they can find their way back but if not. I think they will do well co-parenting.
