Amy Russell is most popular as the wife of A Million Little Things star Ryan Hansen. But this doesn’t mean Amy had any lesser talent. In fact, she even declined the offer to act on Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes. This girl would rather choose to spend a cozy evening at home, than walk the red carpet among the stars.
Meet Amy Russell, Ryan Hansen Wife
Amy Russell and Ryan Hansen have an amazing relationship. The duo tied the knot on June 12, 2004, and even after 17 years of marriage, they were in love more than ever.
According to Ryan, he has been in love with Amy ever since the day they met. She was his “best friend, lover, and the mother of his three daughters.” But the thing Ryan was most appreciative about his wife was her understanding of his profession.
Aside from enjoying each other’s company, Amy and Ryan even loved hanging out with Kristen Bell and her husband Dax Shepard. In 2019, the couples went on vacation together and posted their holidays for everyone to see.
For those of you confused, Amy and Ryan were always close to Kristen Bell. In 2009, Kristen told Cosmo that they all were roommates at the time. So, this might explain where it all started.
Also, Amy was the only witness at Kristen and Dax’s courthouse wedding back in 2013. After the wedding, Kristen then told Amy that she had to go to work and make “‘make pretend love to your husband, (Ryan). And I did.”
Well, this was how their relationship worked. A little unconventional friendship maybe, but it was pure.
For Ryan, Kristen was like his older sister. “This lady just makes life so much better. Honored to do this crazy life with our families. I love everything about you. Happy to carry you on my shoulders anytime Lil bud,” he dedicated a few kind words to Kristen over IG.
How Many Kids Do Amy Russell And Ryan Hansen Have?
Amy Russell and her husband Ryan Hansen share three kids, and they are all daughters. The couple often took their kids on vacations.
After the COVID-19 lockdown, the Hansen family took a camping trip up the California coast. Their little girls were still in school at the time. Fortunately, online classes were prioritized at the time. So, the girls took Zoom classes on the road. “And we could not be Happier Campers,” Ryan said.
The duo also took the kids to Oahu Hawaii next year in April.
Trivia: Amy’s daughter, Crosby Jane, was born in 2009.
Amy Russell Age
Amy Russell was reportedly born after 1980. So, she couldn’t have been any older than 41 years of age as of 2021.
She is wished for her birthday every September 5 and is of the Virgo zodiac.
On her 2020 birthday, Ryan took it to his IG to write, “Happy Birthday to my favorite person in the universe, Amy Honeybee Hansen (Amy had no middle name so when she was 5 she picked Honeybee!) I LOVE YOU.”
Amy Russell Job
Amy Russell is a cinematographer, known for her work Roseline: The Story of an AIDS Victim (2008). Also, she and Ryan were a part of CYT (Christian Youth Theater) and worked the Summer Camp Programs with kids.
According to Ryan, being a Christian in Hollywood was different. “There are not a lot of us, but you know my wife Amy and I are convinced that we can stay true to our values and morals and live good lives despite what anyone else does. So, it’s all good,” he shared.
Though Ryan went on to be an actor, Amy choose to remain off-screen. When Ryan launched Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes (which was a fictionalized story about his real-life), he originally planned to involve Amy in the series. But Amy declined.
Later, the whole family stayed out of it.
“To be honest, she probably would have been great, but I would not have been able to keep it together (acting opposite her),” Ryan shared his thoughts on Amy not joining the show.
When Amy wasn’t on her job, she loved doing her hair, sipping wines, and enjoying the “amazing grace of God.”
