The “Jack and Diane” singer, for his part, has been married three times and has five children, including Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Teddi Mellencamp. The Bravo personality sent her love to her father and Ryan on Thursday by reposting the engagement announcement on her Instagram Story and by commenting pink heart emojis on the You Got Mail star’s post.

When I said, ‘I want to do what you guys do,’ they were like, ‘OK. Go for it.’”
