Kelly teased Ryan saying that it wasn’t really an anniversary, to which Ryan responded: ‘No, it’s an eight-year run, but it’s our third run together. So we celebrate each trial.’
Then Kelly joked further, adding: ‘You know, third time’s a charm!’

The pair last called it quits in February last year, before getting back together in September.
They first met in March of 2013 through some mutual friends.
