There are a number of men out there who have attracted much media attention as a result of their marriage to a public figure and Ryan Debolt is among that lot.
He was thrust into the limelight after his marriage to Sara Ramirez, a Mexican American actress best known for her role as orthopedic surgeon Dr. Callie Torres, in ABC’s long-running medical drama Grey’s Anatomy. She left the show in May 2016 after appearing in 10 seasons.
Sometime in 2016, their marriage was thrust into the spotlight after Sara came out as bisexual. More on this anon.
Ryan Debolt Bio
When you’re married to a celebrity, fans of the star immediately become interested in you, and for Ryan Debolt, the case is no different.
However, he has managed to keep personal details about him away from the prying eyes of the media. As a result, only a little information is available for the public’s consumption.
According to our sources, Ryan Debolt was born in Mexico on the 25th of September 1980 to Mexican parents. After his education in the Latin-American nation, Debolt relocated to the United States of America. Like his wife Sara Ramirez, he now holds dual nationality – Mexican and American.
In the US, Debolt grew in his career as a financial analyst ultimately making his way to TIME where he works as a business analyzer.
Ryan Debolt stands at 5 feet 10 inches tall.
Married, Relationship with Sara Ramirez, Family
The details of how they met aren’t known to the media, but before their marriage on July 4, 2012, they had been in a long-term relationship and got engaged in June 2011.
The engagement which happened while they were away on vacation in Paris threw much media attention. The attention was partly because of Sara’s popularity for her role as a bisexual doctor on Grey’s Anatomy.
Many fans had concluded that her imminent marriage to a man meant she had no gay traits in her after all, but they were later proven wrong.
The actress took to her social media account to post the good news of her engagement to fans accompanied by a picture of Debolt going down on one knee beside a fountain.
Their wedding which was held in New York was an intimate one with only close family and friends in attendance, a source revealed to People magazine. It was Sara’s first marriage ever, at the age of 37.
Debolt’s marriage to Ramirez became a topic of much discussion after Ramirez came out as bisexual in October 2016. She made the revelation while giving a speech at the True Colors Fund’s 40 to None Summit in Los Angeles. It was the first time the actress had ever spoken out publicly about her sexuality.
In her speech, Ramirez talked about youth experiencing homelessness, pointing out that they included those whose lives touched on many intersections.
She then went on to reveal the intersections that exist in her own life to include “Woman, multi-racial woman, a woman of color, queer, bisexual, Mexican-Irish American, immigrant, and raised by families heavily rooted in Catholicism on both my Mexican & Irish sides.”
After giving the speech, Ramirez took to social media to confirm her revelation in a post that read;
“#40ToNoneSummit #SpeakingMyTruth! Will post full video of speech soon! #ThankYou @TrueColorsFund #WomanOfColor #Bisexual #Queer #Immigrant”
Many of her fans were quick to applaud her for her courage while others wondered about how her sexuality would affect her marriage and whether or not she was still married to Ryan Debolt.
The truth is, Sara has always been bisexual even before she chose Debolt as her husband and the revelation did nothing to sabotage her union.
As of this writing, Debolt and Ramirez have no kids. However, before their 2012 marriage, Sara did tell Latina.com that she was open to starting a family and having kids.
“I’m definitely thinking about it – I will say that. I’m very aware of how old I am and I’m very aware of what that means in terms of statistics, and so, yes, I’m considering it. The clock’s ticking, and I totally hear it,” the actress told the publication.
However, she has remained greatly private about her personal life and has never spoken to the media about why she and her husband Ryan are yet to have kids.
