As for what Josey has watched already, he said, “I think the only stuff he’s seen is what his other Grandma has shown him. I think he’s seen some bits and pieces.”
However, Ryan—who was married to Naya from 2014 to 2018—admitted that he’s still unable to show anything to Josey himself.
“To be honest, it’s still extremely hard for me,” he said. “I can’t watch video. Pictures are still hard to look at. We have pictures in the house here. It’s like that thing you try to avoid. Every now and then I’ll make eye contact with these pictures, whether it’s the three of us or just her and him. It’s just really hard to accept, even though we’re coming on three years.”
The Justified alum revealed that Josey doesn’t shy away from talking about what happened the day his mom died.
“I just listen to what he has to say because a lot of the time I don’t have any answers,” Ryan said. “He’ll make statements like, ‘I wish this didn’t happen’ or ‘Why did this have to happen?’ and I just give him a good squeeze and rub his head and kiss him on the cheek and tell him I love him. I put my love onto him and that’s all I can really do.”
