So the question is, How did Ethan Hawke meet Ryan Shawhughes? 

Well, in a series of unexpected events, the public was shocked by the fact that Ethan revealed that the pair would meet when Ryan started working as the nanny for Levon and Maya Hawke, the kids Ethan had with his ex-wife, Uma Thurman.

Although, their romance didn’t start there. In fact, the two were surrounded by the controversy of rumors that accused Ethan of cheating with Ryan, which led to his divorce. He claims that infidelity in a relationship is an insignificant concept in relationships and that he and Uma underwent their separation due to other pressures that they had during the seven years that they were married.

 Those rumors would be debunked after Ethan revealed what went on behind the scenes.

Shortly after they met, Ryan Shawhughes went to pursue her studies and graduated from Columbia University while Ethan started to undergo his messy divorce with Uma Thurman.

After he split with his ex-wife, the two met on one fateful day in the park as they both immediately felt a connection, and their relationship developed there from then on. It was a long time after Ethan employed Ryan, a long enough time to meet again and start anew. Ethan wasn’t private when their relationship started as he endlessly flaunted and gushed over his now wife while he was still courting her, but the courtship ended in 2007 when Ryan was found to be pregnant. The couple married in New York City with a private and small wedding ceremony in 2008. Shortly after that, Ryan gave birth to their first child together, Clementine Jane Hawke. The couple shares two daughters, Clementine and Indiana Hawke, and they now reside in New York.
