In any case, I wasn’t! I simply had on a coat and pants” (which demonstrates that a photograph can be beguiling). The two went to a live show to see a band the two of them enjoyed perform, and the rest was history: Rebecca moved in with Ryan three months after the fact, and they got hitched in October 2007.
