Aww! Nearly three weeks after Ryan McCartan and Dove Cameron called it quits and ended their engagement, the ‘Liv & Maddie’ actor is still hurting. Ryan says ‘it just sucks’ because he ‘thought they’d be together forever.’ So heartbreaking! We have the sad interview, right here.
“It just sucks,” Ryan McCartan, 23, said of his recent split from actress and Liv & Maddie costar Dove Cameron, 20, on the Allegedly with Theo Von and Matthew Cole Weiss podcast on Oct. 25. The duo called off their engagement on Oct. 5, but even after almost three weeks Ryan is still devastated by Dove’s decision. Luckily the Disney actor has plenty of people he can lean on. “That’s kind of the bottom line. I have the most amazing family and friends, truly lifesavers in my life that are being really good to me.”
“It just plain out sucks,” he continued. “It’s really hard. I still love her very much, but c’est la f—ing vie. That’s just kind of how it goes. Time heals everything.” Until that healing begins, Ryan is “just trying to distract” himself so he doesn’t feel so sad. However, it was a particularly hard hit because he never felt like he was rushing into marriage. He had been with Dove for 3 years, and “just always wanted to get married young.”
“I would play house when I was 6 years old with [my neighbor] — literally very, very young. I took it very seriously,” he explained. “Sometimes she would be the Mommy and I would be the Daddy, but sometimes I would be the Mommy and she would be the Daddy because it was really important that we both understood both sides of the roles.” So precious!
Ryan may have ended up brokenhearted, but he says he wouldn’t want it any other way. “I have no regrets,” he revealed. “It’s not like I would take it back. I really thought that that was going to work out and we were going to be together forever.” Awww.
