Ryan told BuzzFeed News that he and his wife try to parent Maya in a more "adventurous" way, by letting her explore the world on her own terms.
"I like her to explore and be free," he said.
The couple is expecting their second child, and recently bought their first home. Ryan said he has been excited to finally own a home after years of renting.
"It's an opportunity I have been waiting for, to have a place we can really make our own," he said.
