But if given the chance to do the show in recent years, The Bachelorette Season 1 star isn't sure she'd be up for it.
"They'll always be family. That said, I definitely don't know if I had been given the opportunity to do it now with social media and all of the pressures that are in the world these days," Trista shared with Fox News Digital in an interview published on Tuesday.
Many bachelors and bachelorettes face backlash and nasty comments from fans of the show on social media.
"The cliche things that you hear: communication and love and friendship and humor, forgiveness, really having the same kind of value system in terms of family and work ethic, and really just continuing to support each other and be there for each other."
Trista called her The Bachelorette winner her "best friend" and "biggest cheerleader," adding, "Hopefully he feels that way about me, too."
"There is not really a big secret. I feel like it's out there, and it's just a matter of staying committed to each other," Trista concluded.
When Trista and Ryan reached the milestone of 19 years of marriage earlier this month, Trista gushed on social media, "It doesn't matter if we're at home in the mountains or taking in the Caribbean sunshine... he still makes me happy (I mean...hello hot hubby!)"
"I'm a lucky girl, but not just because he is a real life Clark Kent. He's genuine, thoughtful, brave, caring, adventurous, hysterical, kind hearted, clever, and does so much for our family!)" she gushed.
Ryan also uploaded a heartfelt post of his own.
"I suppose if there was ever a reason to create a post, it would be to tell the world how much I love this woman... I love her a lot," Ryan wrote.
"For 19 years I've loved her more than I ever thought it possible to love someone and I've done so because she showed me how. I hope she knows... Happy Anniversary Trista."
Trista and Ryan have two children together: Max, 14, and Blakesley, 12.
Prior to starring as the Bachelorette, Trista found fame when she competed on Alex Michel's season of The Bachelor in 2002.
Trista then chose Ryan at the Final Rose Ceremony of her The Bachelorette season over runner-up Charlie Maher.
Ryan proposed marriage to Trista on The Bachelorette's first-season finale, which aired in February 2003 and drew over 30 million viewers on ABC.
Trista, a former Dancing with the Stars and Fear Factor contestant, changed her last name from Rehn to Sutter when she married Ryan in December 2003 in a televised special.
Trista & Ryan's Wedding's two-hour finale -- which featured the couple's wedding ceremony and reception at the Lodge in Rancho Mirage resort in Palm Springs, CA -- drew over 17 million viewers when it aired on ABC on December 10, 2003.
Trista and Ryan welcomed their son Maxwell in July 2007 followed by their daughter Blakesley in April 2009.
