During an interview in February 2017, Lynskey wrote, “now he’s my fiancé. Yes, I know, I’m announcing it.” Even though both Ritter and Melanie are quite quiet about their personal life, they sometimes praise each other on social media regarding their respective careers.
As fans of the actor know, Jason is the son of John Ritter, who tragically passed away in 2003 at the age of 53. Coincidentally, Tyler Ritter also had a child recently as well.
Tyler, the Arrow alum, took to his social media to reveal that he and his wife, Leila Parma, had their first baby. Their child was the first grandson of the late Three’s Company star, John Ritter, who had four children, Carly, Stella, Jason, and Tyler.
Just three years after the death of their father, Tyler married the Argentinian director in 2007 – 12 years ago. One of the last movies John ever starred in was Bad Santa alongside Bernie Mac and Billy Bob Thornton. The film has become a cult classic since then and is considered one of the greatest Christmas comedies of all time.
Fans will recognize Melanie from her time on the Chuck Lorre created series, Two And A Half Men, starring Jon Cryer and Charlie Sheen. Melanie played Charlie’s endearing – but creepy – ex-girlfriend.
