Here's Who Blue Bloods Star Vanessa Ray Is Married To In Real Life

Actor Vanessa Ray has been married to her current partner for several years. Before this relationship, the "Pretty Little Liars" alum got hitched to fellow actor Derek Baynham, according to Baynham's IMDb page. He and Ray tied the knot in 2003, and they ended up divorcing in 2009. The exes both appeared in the 2003 short film, "The Sparky Chronicles: The Map." Additionally, in 2007 the couple's experience of purchasing and renovating a home together in Toronto was documented on the reality series "Marriage Under Construction," as the Toronto Star stated. 

Ray has since married Landon Beard. She posted an Instagram photo in March 2015 of her engagement ring after Beard asked for her hand in marriage. "So we went for a walk on the Hudson when he all of a sudden started getting really mushy and sweet," Ray said. "I could feel his heart beat under his clothes when he pulled out the ring." In 2015, E! Online wrote that Ray and Beard had wed during a Pala, California, ceremony with a guest list that featured people like Sasha Pieterse, Ray's costar from "Pretty Little Liars." Beard is also a professional in the entertainment industry.

"Because here I am, changing, starting to take accountability for myself, trying to be present, and all of those things. And my husband is someone who takes care of everything." She added, "Ultimately, we've come out on the other side."
