Combs told People: “We had both come to the point in our lives where we were very dedicated to our kids, and okay with the fact that we would probably raise them as single parents. It’s that age-old story of when you’re not looking for something, that’s when you find it. And it smacked me right in the face!” Ryan has a 17-year-old daughter. 


2. They took things slow

After they met in 2016, Combs and Ryan went on "proper dates." She said, “We courted for quite a while. We both have kids so we were careful and cautious and slow.” When Ryan proposed in 2017, he made sure to include all of their kids in the event. Combs said, “He joked that way I couldn’t say no.” However, he had no reason to worry. “Just when I stopped looking for the perfect person, the perfect person showed up.”

5. Her feelings about Charmed reboot

Holly is not a fan of the CW's reboot of Charmed. In January 2018, she said that the show was being billed as "feminist," as if the original show was not, notes USA TodayOn January 26, 2018, she tweeted: "Here’s the thing. Until you ask us to rewrite it like Brad Kern did weekly don’t even think of capitalizing on our hard work. Charmed belongs to the 4 of us, our vast amount of writers, crews and predominantly the fans," Combs tweeted on Jan. 26, 2018. "FYI you will not fool them by owning a title/stamp. So bye."

6. She really, really doesn't like the Charmed reboot

Combs did not mince words when talking about how she feels about the new series. She wrote: "And another thing. Reboots or remakes, as we used to call them, usually have storylines so similar to the original that they are legally required to use the same title and buy the rights to that title. If it’s not similar than it’s just another show. A new show with a new title."
