“We are so happy T-Mobile beat out an aggressive last-minute bid from my mom Tammy Reynolds as we believe the excellence of their 5G network will provide a better strategic fit than my mom’s slightly-above-average mahjong skills. I am so proud of the entire Mint team and so excited for what’s to come,” Ryan joked.

In the video Ryan announces the acquisition with T-Mobile’s CEO Mike Sievert.

“Mint has run on T-Mobile’s network since its inception. And the reason people have such a great experience with Mint is due to the T-Mobile network, especially its unrivaled lead in 5G,” Ryan said.

“We are so happy to have you and the whole Mint team join the T-Mobile family,” Mike said.

“Ha! Well I wouldn’t call it a family, Mike. Family is the place for misdirected hopes and dreams. I’m hoping this will be much better than that,” Ryan joked.

“Over the long-term, we’ll also benefit from applying the marketing formula Mint has become famous for across more parts of T-Mobile,” Mike Sievert said in a statement. “We think customers are really going to win with a more competitive and expansive Mint and Ultra.”

T-Mobile reached a deal to acquire Ka’ena Corporation, the parent company of Mint Mobile and Ultra Mobile, as well as wireless wholesaler Plum.

Melissa Joan Hart recently opened up about the time in her life where she and Ryan Reynolds could’ve been an item.
