9-1-1’s Ryan Guzman And Fiancé Break Up After Having Baby Together — He Couldn’t ‘Fix What Was Broken’
As one of the hottest firefighters on primetime television, it’s understandable why fans are curious to know who 9-1-1 star Ryan Guzman is dating now and if he has a girlfriend.
9-1-1 is FOX’s procedural drama following the personal and professional lives of first responders — police officers, paramedics, firefighters and dispatchers — in Los Angeles. Created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear — the creators behind shows like Glee and American Horror Story — 9-1-1 stars Guzman as Edmundo “Eddie” Díaz, a firefighter and paramedic with the Los Angeles Fire Department and a former army medic who served in Afghanistan. Eddie also has a son, Christopher, with his late wife, Shannon.
“We already know that Christopher is Eddie’s whole life. Now we’re kind of diving a little deeper into that,” Guzman told HollywoodLife in 2020 of Eddie’s lead episode “Eddie Begins.” “Aside from that one factor, we actually get to shed light on the trauma that he’s been through and empathizing towards this character now and seeing why he’s so closed off in a lot of areas of his life and why he chooses to help others rather than allowing others to help him.”
Guzman continued, “When I started diving a little deeper into the trauma that Edie went through, I started to really understand that when he came home he fought a completely different war than he did in Afghanistan. I think for me, it was easier to fight the physical war in Afghanistan rather than the emotional war that he fought when coming back home.”
Since he joined 9-1-1 in Season 2, it’s clear that Eddie has become one of the fan-favorite firefighters at Station 118, especially with his dramatic relationships. But who is Ryan Guzman dating now? Read on for what we know.
