Ryan Seacrest Dating? 'American Idol' Host Hot For Single Mom Model After Taylor Swift New Year's Eve Date [Video]

Fit and fabulous at 40, American Idol Ryan Seacrest is dating again. It's been awhile since Seacrest was in any long-term relationships, but now he's dating a single mom and model, Renée Hall, reported TMZ.

Ryan recently broke up with another mode, Shayna Taylor. And then he met Hall during a delayed celebration of his 40th birthday party (Seacrest's real birth date is Christmas Eve).

Apparently, that birthday party meeting meant something to both of them, because Ryan transported her to New York City. They chose an elite excursion through the Museum of Modern Art.

In contrast to Ryan's previous relationships, such as Julianne Hough, Hall is the mother of an eight-year-old boy, reported the Daily Mail.

She frequently posts photos of her son on her Instagram page, with loving captions.
"Last summer, boy. Missing my baby, baby love. My extra dose of Sunshine. #liveforyou"
One problem that Ryan has had with relationships is making time for a personal life. He's famously busy, juggling hosting American Idol with executive producer roles on various shows. Most recently, he earned credit for recruiting and creating the brand known as the Kardashian family, as the Inquisitr reported.

Kris Jenner signed a $100 million deal with E! Network for herself and Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kendall, and Kylie. And as the creator of the dynasty, Ryan will also get a piece of the profit pie.

Some had hoped that Seacrest would start dating Taylor Swift after the two bonded on his New Year's Eve show, with Ryan even chivalrously giving her his warm coat on the freezing cold night, as USA Today reported.

With Taylor shivering in a barely-there bralet and blazer, she whimpered in the cold after rocking her New Year's Eve performance.

"I'm absolutely freezing, this is the wrong choice," shivered Taylor.

Ryan responded by promising to fix her up, and he promptly removed his warm gloves, took off his coat, and wrapped it snugly around the freezing pop singer, who beamed with gratitude.

Swift appeared to be hoping for more as Ryan began to take off his clothes.

"This is a family show, my God, this is so inappropriate," Taylor declared, initially not understanding why Ryan was removing his attire.

After fixing up Taylor in his warm clothes, Seacrest sent out a cheerful message from the two of them.

"Happy new year from all of us in NYC, *especially* @taylorswift13 #rockineve"
