Gypsy-Rose Blanchard reflects on her past life

Gypsy-Rose Blanchard has recently opened up about her new romance with former fiancé Ken Urker after her divorce from Ryan Anderson.

In a new interview with PEOPLE, Gypsy revealed Ken “was a great support” when she was going through the “emotional hardship” of her split from Ryan.

Gypsy revealed she was in a relationship with Ken, who first started as a pen pal. He proposed in 2018 and their on-and-off relationship ended years before her 2023 prison release.

However, Gypsy and Ken have found a way back to one another.

“I’m in love,” said the 32-year-old.

She told the outlet, “Love looks like spending time and feeling your complete self with another person. It's so cliché but it gives you wings.”

“But then I let myself open up to the feelings I’ve always had for him,” she continued.

Gypsy stated, “For the first time in my life, I’m doing something that makes me happy — I’m prioritizing me.”

Earlier, Gypsy was first spotted with Ken in late April.

“Ken and I reconnected as friends. It wasn't like, jump out of a marriage and then let me meet up with you, and boom, we're in a relationship,” she recalled.

Gypsy mentioned, “We had kept a friendship for the longest time. He was in a relationship. I was with Ryan, and so we were living different lives with respect to our partners, a 'wish you the best' type of thing.”

In her new Lifetime docuseries Gypsy Rose: Life After Lockup, Ryan expressed his concerns over Gypsy’s friendship with Ken and they would even fight over Ken’s continued presence in her life.

“It wasn't until I knew that my marriage was over with Ryan that I was like, 'I would like to see Ken and let's hang out because we never got to hang out before when I was in prison',” she explained.

After her divorce, Gypsy pointed out that Ken “was that support for me when going through this emotional hardship of crying and then being okay and then crying”.

“I let myself open up to the feelings that I've always had for Ken. Those feelings just don't die,” she noted.
