Ryan Seacrest and his girlfriend, Shayna Taylor, attended Wango Tango 2017 in Los Angeles over the weekend.
As the new co-host of Live! with Kelly & Ryan continues to face questions about his personal life on the morning talk show, Seacrest and Taylor turned up at the event with their mothers but didn’t share any photos of each other. Instead, Seacrest posted a photo of himself on stage with his mom while Taylor shared photos from the audience with her mother and her sister.
“Another Wango Tango in the books,” Ryan Seacrest wrote in the caption of his photo.
“Love this little one soo much!” Shayna Taylor wrote in the caption of her first photo from Wango Tango, also including the hash tags “mimi me,” “little sister,” and “best friend.”
With her second photo of herself and her mother, Taylor wrote, “Happy Mother’s Day to my beautiful momma! I truly am the luckiest daughter in the world.”
Ryan Seacrest also posted photos from backstage, one of which featured the new addition to the American Idol reboot, Katy Perry. As fans have surely heard, there’s tons of buzz swirling regarding the possibility of Seacrest reprising his role as host of the hit singing competition, which will air on ABC, but thus far, nothing has been confirmed.
Ryan Seacrest and Shayna Taylor began dating in early 2013 after his split from Dancing With The Stars judge Julianna Hough and parted ways in late 2014.
Following their split, Ryan Seacrest was linked to a number of women, including model Dominique Piek and beauty queen Hilary Cruz. However, after splitting from Cruz sometime last year or early this year, he and Taylor were spotted back together in Los Angeles. Then, after Ryan Seacrest was named as Kelly Ripa’s co-host, they reportedly moved in together in New York City.
People Magazine was first to confirm news of Ryan Seacrest’s new living arrangement with the chef and noted that the couple had spent time in Paris in early April before attending the MOCA Gala in Los Angeles on April 29.
In December of last year, around the time he reunited with Shayna Taylor after spending a couple of years apart, Ryan Seacrest spoke out about the possibility of getting married during an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
After watching his sister, Meredith, marry her now-husband, Jimmy Leach, in Mexico in November 2016, Ryan Seacrest was especially inspired to get married himself.
“Did she inspire me to get married? Is that what you want to know?” Seacrest joked to Katie Krause. “I really enjoyed it. I thought to myself, ‘This is something everybody needs.'”
As for whether or not he was hoping to get married himself, Ryan Seacrest confirmed, “Of course, of course… Yeah, yes of course, why wouldn’t I?”
Ryan Seacrest also addressed the issue during a recent episode of Live! with Kelly & Ryan.
“I did get close [to an engagement] and I didn’t do it and it was the right move,” he said at the time, according to a report by People Magazine, “but I love the idea — and I know you’re going to ask me — of marriage because my parents have been married for 47 years, and so I have this thing — and you’ve been married 21.”
Ryan Seacrest went on to reveal that he has been hesitant in the past because he doesn’t want to screw up but when it comes to a future engagement, the idea is something he does think about.
