As a radio host, TV presenter, producer, and fashion entrepreneur, American-born Ryan Seacrest is indeed an all-around media mogul. He is widely known for his many years as host of American Idol, a radio show of the same name on air with Ryan Seacrest, and the internationally syndicated countdown show American Top 40. As host of the show Live from the Red Carpet on E!, Seacrest became one of the most remarkable faces of the awards season in Hollywood. As a senior executive at E!, he is the mastermind behind many of the station’s most popular shows, including the hit reality series Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
The media mogul has since founded his own production company, Ryan Seacrest Productions (RSP). Among countless TV productions, Seacrest received an Emmy Award in 2011 for his work on the TV series Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution. Seacrest also received nominations for his work on Live with Kelly and Ryan, where he was co-host and co-producer.
Is Ryan Seacrest Married?
As one of the most recognizable faces on American television, Ryan Seacrest’s relationship status has always been a topic of interest. Marriage may be in the future plans of the host of American Idol, but that has yet to happen. Having had a number of serious relationships with a number of women over the years, Seacrest has remained one of the most desirable bachelors in the American media. But even though Seacrest still has that big step ahead of him, he totally worships the institution of marriage, as his own parents have been married for nearly 5 decades.
Who Is Ryan Seacrest Dating?
Ryan Seacrest is currently in a relationship with model and personal trainer Shayna Tyrese Taylor. Taylor is a graduate of the Art Institute Culinary School and is also a professional chef and fitness enthusiast. She is currently under contract with Wilhelmina-Models, who joined the agency in November 2013.
Seacrest and Taylor first met in 2012, and after two years together they separated in December 2014, and after a two-year break from each other, the duo rekindled the old flames when they got back together in 2017. It seems that the couple went a step further in this second joint outreach, as evidenced by increased public appearances and their joint move into the Seacrest home in Manhattan.
On October 10, 2017, Shayna Taylor appeared as a guest on an episode of Seacrest’s morning show “Live with Kelly and Ryan”. Both the love truck model and the cook expressed their strong support for her husband after a former colleague accused her of sexual harassment.
Ryan Seacrest Dating Timeline
Before his relationship with model Shayna Taylor, Ryan Seacrest had been in several other high-profile relationships. In 2003, Seacrest began a relationship with professional sommelier Shana Wall. Their relationship lasted for 2 years and ended in 2005. The following year Seacrest had a brief romance with Desperate Housewives actress Teri Hatcher. The relationship was short-lived when the duo split up after a picture appeared of them becoming intimate in Malibu.
The media mogul also had a fairly long relationship with professional dancer, actress, and singer Julianne Hough. The duo reportedly met in April 2010. After almost 3 years of relationship, the couple announced their separation in March 2013. According to Hough, their full career plans made it impossible for them to stay together, hence the split. In 2015 Ryan Seacrest also had a brief relationship with model and former Miss Teen USA Hilary Cruz.
Relationship With Kelly Ripa?
Ryan Seacrest and Kelly Ripa both act as co-host and co-producer of the syndicated morning talk show Live with Kelly and Ryan. Ripa has been co-hosting various formats of the popular show since February 2001, when she replaced former co-host, Kathie Lee Gifford. On May 1, 2017, Ryan Seacrest was announced as the permanent co-host for the show, replacing former co-host Michael Strahan.
Seacrest and Ripa are perfect host couples because they have so much chemistry on screen. Beyond their relationship as colleagues, the couple also maintains a warm relationship off-screen. Following the scandal of Seacrest’s sexual misconduct, Ripa publicly expressed her support for her co-host in an episode of her show on March 1, 2018.
