Football career[edit]

Sutter was a star defensive back in college with the Colorado Buffaloes football team. He was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the fifth round of the 1998 NFL Draft. He was cut late in the 1998 training camp. He then signed with the Carolina Panthers a few days later, not making the active roster until November 28, 1998 (he had been on the Panther's practice squad). In the first play of his first game in the NFL, he injured his shoulder while making a tackle against the New York Jets. He was immediately placed on injured reserve and eventually released. The following summer, he signed with the Seattle Seahawks, but he was cut. In 2000, Sutter played one season for the Barcelona Dragons of NFL Europe. In the spring of 2005, Ryan was invited to a tryout with the New Orleans Saints, but suffered a knee injury during the minicamp. He has not been in the NFL since.

In February 2007, the Sutters told People magazine that they were expecting their first child in summer of 2007, but they wanted the sex of the baby to be a surprise. In an interview, Ryan stated that if they had a girl, then they would like to have a boy next, but if they had a boy first, then they wanted a girl second.[2]

In July 2007, Maxwell Alston was born four weeks early stemming from pregnancy complications via c-section after a failed induction/stalled labor. During her seventh month of pregnancy, Rehn was diagnosed with gestational diabetes.[3] Max was first revealed to the public on the cover of Us Weekly magazine[4] and made his first on-camera appearance in a video diary series Trista recorded for Momlogic.com.[5]

On October 14, 2008, Trista and Ryan Sutter announced to Life and Style Magazine that she was pregnant with their second child. Trista said that she was considering having her tubes tied after delivering, and if the baby turned out to be another boy, they would seek adoption of a girl.[6]
