Since the duo likes to keep their personal life private, it is unknown if they're married or not. If yes, the other details, such as their wedding date and relationship timeline, remain concealed, too.

But Ryan and Fuemana reportedly have been together since before the early 2000s. The couple attended the Logie Awards in 2003 together, where Ryan was nominated for Most Popular New Male Talent for his role in the TV show Neighbours.

The two also worked together in a one-person theatre show titled The Packer in 2009. The play was written by Fuemana, whereas Jay Ryan starred as a single performer.

Most recently, on April 23, 2021, the Fighting Season actor took to his Instagram to wish Fuemana a happy birthday and posted a picture with her. Through the caption, he thanked her for her contribution to their family.

He also hinted that the couple was going on a road trip to celebrate the occasion.

The Pair Welcomed a Daughter in 2013

Ryan and Fuemana gave birth to their first child, a baby girl named Eve, in March 2013.

But due to their secretive nature, the couple revealed the news four months after the birth of their daughter during a conversation with TV Week Australia at ComicCon Convention in San Diego.

"We’ve kept everything pretty quiet until now, but it’s changed my life and really put a lot of things in perspective," the actor said. 

Ryan further stated that he had not expected to become a father at that age, but after the baby was born, he realized the importance of family.

I never expected to be a dad at my age and she was a little bundle of surprise for me and my partner, but it makes me realize how important family really is.

In December 2019, the actor posted a picture on his Instagram with his daughter.
