Trista Sutter Dishes On Her Life After 'The Bachelorette'

Former Bachelorette Trista Sutter talks to Parade.com about her life with husband Ryan Sutter, whom she met on the show, their two kids Max, 3, and Blakesley, 2, and being involved in the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement. The couple have settled in Eagle Country, Colorado where Trista says they have a “normal” life.

On Life After Bachelorette: “Life is great. We thoroughly enjoy parenthood, although we are ‘normal,’ in that we have our bad days and we have our moments when our children don’t listen, but for the most part, we are so grateful for the chance to be parents because it did take us awhile to get pregnant with Max. It was always a dream of mine to be a mom, so I’ve gotten lots of dreams to come true through the show. We never would have met have if it had not been for the show, so we’re thankful for that. For the most part, we do live a quiet life out here and I think it’s definitely helped to keep us grounded and together.”

On Letting Their Kids Watch The Show Where They Met: “I think we will for sure. It’s part of their history, too. But I will definitely be editing. They don’t need to see all of it — not the parts of us making out heavily on the couch!”

On The Tabloid Drama Today’s Bachelor’s And Bachelorettes Face: “We actually did, too. Not to the extent that it is now, but I remember Ryan calling me when he read a report in one of the magazines that I had gotten a ticket with (Bachelorette runner-up] Charlie in the car, which was so not true. And I think there was a rumor that I was pregnant with Charlie’s baby. We dealt with it a little bit, but definitely not to the level where they have to now. It’s horrible.”

On Being Involved In CPR Awareness Week: “We were more than happy to become involved with this cause. Number one, Ryan is a fire fighter, he’s trained in the courses, and so that was a natural fit. And I used to be a physical therapist and had to get certified every year for my job, so I used to be very involved. And then just being a mom, I think it’s important for all the parents out there to really know about the courses that exist because God forbid something ever did happen to your own child. CPR is extremely important in saving lives, so we wanted to get involved.”

    Poor baby always has her bows in the most awkward silliest looking places on her head! She has no hair but a bow on her forehead!

    I enjoy an article where the couple, now, has been on a show, is happy and lives the normal life as normal is. I think Trista is right about being more away from the limelight and temptations that happen on the red carpet which helps them pay attention to each other’s wants and cares. I still remember the show and the poem that Ryan wrote for her. He, unlike, Bently on the Bachelorette show now, was quiet and had a loving nature.

    I remember the look she gave Ryan when she first saw him, also the poem. Good for them. The baby’s bow is adorable, how mean can you be to comment about a bow on an infants head!
