Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney shared some bittersweet news this week about her son, Ryan Vieth. We're learning that Ryan's relationship with his girlfriend, Sarah, is going quite well - but that he's now moving far away from his family in order to be with her.

Tamra let her fans know over the weekend that she was getting to meet Sarah for the first time. Right away, we knew things between Ryan and Sarah must be getting serious, as Tamra pointed out that he never introduces gals to Mom. 

Now, Tamra is announcing on Instagram that Ryan and Sarah will be living quite far away from Tamra. "It's happening! My son @fit_lion is leaving @cutfitoc and his family and moving 7 hours away to be with @sarahrod777," Tamra writes on March 18. "I'm going to miss seeing him every day. But happy he found happiness. You found a good one son..... ❤️"

Aww! It's tough that Tamra won't get to see Ryan very often anymore, but it's very sweet that she's supporting this big change in his life. Clearly, Tamra is a fan of Sarah's. But we're wondering what Ryan will do for work, now that he's no longer working at Tamra and Eddie Judge's gym, CUT Fitness. Perhaps he can find a job at a new gym. 

We wish all the best to the happy couple! And fear not, Tamra: In the age of Skype and the like, no one is ever really all that far away.

What do you think about Ryan and Sarah's plans?
