One of the very few---yet emotional---messages that Ryan has dedicated to his wife in public happened when he won the Golden Globe for Best Actor for La La Land in 2017. "It's impossible to get here without the support of a lot of people, and I have so many to thank," he said.
"As I shot my last film and I sang, danced, and played the piano, my partner took care of our first child as she was pregnant with the second one, and she also helped her brother fight cancer. If it weren't for her, it wouldn't be me standing here. Thank you, my love."
