What Is Ryan Cabrera Doing Now?

If you're a fan of early 2000s pop, chances are you're familiar with Ryan Cabrera. The artist first drew recognition as the lead singer for the Dallas band Rubix Grove. He then decided to venture into solo projects, releasing his debut independent album "Elm St." in 2001. In 2004, he released his single "On the Way Down," which quickly dominated iPod Nano libraries everywhere. (Remember those days?) Teenage girls from all over the world fell head-over-heels in love with the dreamy Cabrera, who strummed his guitar while sporting a spiky blond haircut in the Ashlee Simpson-starring music video. (Cabrera and Simpson were even in a relationship at one point, but split after just a year of dating.) Cabrera also famously dated "The Hills" star Audrina Patridge.

Following these high-profile romances, Cabrera eventually found the love of his life. As for his music career? Cabrera may not be pop music's knight in shining armor anymore, but he hasn't fallen out of the spotlight, either.

Inside Ryan Cabrera's heartwarming romance

Ryan Cabrera is now happily married. In April 2022, Cabrera tied the knot with WWE star Alexa Bliss. Ahead of their special day, they shared the inside scoop on their wedding, which took place at the Kempa Villa in Palm Desert, California. Cabrera told People, "It's very us. The whole thing's meant to bring out our personalities, and we are far from just normal." They were captivated by the sweet getaway, which a friend owned. Cabrera noted, "It's absolutely gorgeous and nestled within the mountains. At the bottom, there are vineyards, and behind the house there's a beautiful lake. It's just far enough outside of Los Angeles, too." Their wedding was decorated with unique touches, like a massive, light-up sign that said, "Welcome to the S***show." Instead of flower girls, people strutted down the aisle, handing out shots to the guests. The couple also inspired attendees to get creative with their clothing, prompting them with the question, "What would Harry Styles do?"

As seen on Cabrera's Instagram page, the pair is still going strong. On February 14, 2023, he dedicated a post to Bliss, writing, "Thank you @alexa_bliss_wwe_ for making me look forward to waking up every day!!! Happy Valentine's Day." Bliss also expressed her love for Cabrera on Instagram by sharing a romantic photo of the two kissing. She captioned it, "Happy Valentine's Day no words can explain how much I love you xoxoxo."
