Ryan Kattner is a father to a baby girl he shares with actress Constance Wu. They welcomed their beautiful daughter in August 2020.

The last time we heard about the two was in 2021 when Constance was talking about their baby on "The Tonight Show, Starring Jimmy Fallon." The first time mom sounded excited talking about her baby girl and expressed how great her daughter is – and that she has a blue butt.

When asked whether her boyfriend ever sings to the baby, the actress said, "Yeah, he actually wrote a song about her blue butt. So that will be on his next album."

The actress was further asked what it's like dating the father of her baby, who is a rock star, and she said their life is like the movie "Almost Famous," but like middle-aged.

Speaking about the experience, Ryan said, "So I was like, oh, maybe this isn't a healthy way to live. So 'Shameless' came out of that; I'm very happy with that song."
