Everything’s changing for Ryan now that he’s becoming a dad, but does he have what it takes to tame villainous Jen?

When we last saw Ryan Matthews (Ryan Eggold) on 90210, he was downing booze and crashing into the sign outside West Beverly Hills High. But Ryan tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that we’ll be seeing a whole new Ryan when the show returns for its third season TONIGHT (Sept. 13) on The CW. “He’s had the whole summer to put things into perspective with having a baby,” Ryan, 25, says. “He’s cleaned up and not thinking about himself.” And it’s a good thing he’s sobering up, because he’ll be fighting his wicked baby mama Jen (Sara Foster) to stay in his child’s life.

“She fights it every step of the way,” he says of his and Jen’s tumultuous relationship as parents. “But she realizes she can’t do it alone and she’s in over her heard. She kinds of needs Ryan, even though she’d never admit it.”

Ryan even suggests there’s a chance Jen has a human side to her!

“It only comes out in brief glimpses,” he says. “It’s a lot of fun because Ryan is more simple and grounded and she’s obviously much more insane. Totally crazy, fancy and pretentious. So they’re totally different, but they’re stuck together in a very intimate way. It makes for a lot of comedy this season. I hope it’s funny.”

Jen… funny? I’ll believe it when I see it. And we’ll all be getting our chance to see it when 90210 returns at 8 p.m. TONIGHT (Sept. 13) on The CW!
