Marc Blucas’s Wife Shares Candid Story Of Her Battle With Addiction
Marc Blucas is an all-round family guy, who doesn't mind going the length to spend as much time with his family. According to an interview with Wake Forest Magazine, he even negotiated to appear in fewer episodes of The Fix to ensure that he had time off to go home.
As his Instagram bio suggests, Buffy the Vampire Slayer actor can't stay apart for long from his 15-acre farm in rural Pennsylvania with his 13 chickens, two rabbits, two dogs, two kittens, four kids, and wife. Married to newscaster turned certified Life Coach, Ryan Haddon, Marc has been sharing his life with Ryan for over 11 years, and in the time have raised their children and helped each other get through tough times. With a history of addiction and failed relationships, wife Ryan has made quite a spiritual transition as a meditation teacher who is now helping others challenge the reality and clutches of addiction.
Ryan Haddon Watched Her First Marriage Fall Apart Due To Her Addiction
Actor Marc Blucas got married to news presenter Ryan Haddon on July 25, 2009, in Pennsylvania. But prior to that, Marc’s wife Ryan had a troubling past, which fortunately she overcame for good. Through her personal website, Ryan shares a heartbreaking story of how she ended up engulfed in an avalanche of chaos due to her addiction before her marriage with Marc.
Ryan shared on her website that she had drinking problems for a long time but had gotten sober for four years after a few rehab stints. She was married to her first husband Christian Slater, a renowned American actor. The couple got married on Feb 14, 2000, and went on to have two kids- a son and a daughter. Ryan shared that one day she broke her four years of abstinence by drinking a Kir Royal with her girlfriends in The Four Seasons Hotel. Little did she know that it would become a habit again, and a bad one. With the pressure of taking care of her two young kids, she began consuming more alcohol as an excuse. She did not just limit herself to drinking but got into drug use as well.
She began giving less time to her kids. All of it was amplified by the public attention that her drunken-self got. One night, in the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Los Angeles, in a fit of rage she threw a glass at her husband Slater who took at least nine stitches to heal. She got arrested for domestic battery but was released when Slater said it was an accident.
The November 2003 incident of her being arrested led to Ryan turning her life around.
A year later in February 2005, Christian slater filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences.
Marc’s Wife Ryan Has Transitioned Into A Certified Life Coach
After being released, she went into rehab and finally surrendered. Ryan turned her situation around and quit alcohol and drugs in 2003. She claims that she has since then been completely sober. She eventually began working on the 12 Step in Alcoholics Anonymous where the ‘one-day-at-a-time program’ kept her sober. After much prayer and meditation practice, it is safe to say that Ryan got out of her addiction altogether.
Four years after her divorce, Ryan got married to her second husband Marc. She eventually became a Reiki Level III practitioner and a Meditation Teacher, as she shares in her blog. She also became a certified Life Coach through the International Coaching Federation. Not just that, Ryan went on to become a Certified Hypnotherapist through the National Guild of Hypnotist. She now helps other people to realign their mind, body, and spirit to move forward.
Marc And Ryan Share Two Daughters Together
Marc and Ryan went on to have two daughters together after their marriage.
At present, Marc and Ryan live on a 15-acre farm in rural Pennsylvania, close to nature, with their two daughters and Ryan’s two children from her previous marriage with Slater.
The couple has the rule to put family first and not be more than two weeks away from home. Marc has even cut his appearances in the episodes of The Fix to stay close with his family.
After the horrific battle with addiction, Ryan has managed to turn her professional life around and maintain a healthy family life with loving husband Marc Blucas.
