Amell told People that his dad, who’s a jeweler, made both of their wedding rings. They also had a four-tier cake with berries and cream, along with signature cocktails.
In September 2019, Ricci gave birth to their son, Robert Amell V. He weighed nine pounds, ET Online reported. Ricci said her pregnancy was relatively easy.

Paevey told ExtraTV in 2018: ”
And Paevey is certainly busy. Ricci shared with Parade that he makes jewelry by hand.
Ryan Paevey is a force. The man does EVERYTHING. On top of acting, he makes the most beautiful jewelry BY HAND. My wrap gift from him was this beautiful silver necklace with an aquamarine gemstone charm. He’s so impressive.
Paevey’s business is called Fortunate Wanderer and it’s based in Los Angeles. On his website, he says he founded the business to share prints of his photography and it has since grown to encompass much more.
The website notes: “Now, Fortunate Wanderer has expanded into a number of adventure inspired items. As a Wanderer, you experience new places, new things, new people. You observe, you capture images, you find unique trappings that remind you of your journey once you’re back home. Fortunate Wanderer has begun to build a brand for other Wanderers of the world, offering everything a wanderer should have for their adventures – inspiration, gear, and trappings that become trimmings.”
Paevey told ET Online that he had a blast meeting Ricci’s husband and son while filming the new Hallmark movie, Don’t Go Breaking My Heart.
“I got to meet her husband [Robbie Amell], who’s really cool, and I got to meet her kid, who’s painfully adorable. We had a blast,” he said.
