Ryan Seacrest’s charming personality paired with a warm smile certainly makes him one of the most sought-after bachelors in the industry. But one moment you will see him posting about Shayna Taylor, only later the sweetness is trampled by rumors claiming the two have broken up … again.
So is he back on the market? Not exactly because during an episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan, the American Idol host revealed that he and his girlfriend are celebrating their third year together.
His co-host, Kelly, first announced that it was her and husband Mark Consuelos’ 24th anniversary and the 45-year-old saw it as a chance to also highlight a special milestone in his love life. After greeting his 28-year-old girlfriend, the dashing gentleman shared that this was actually the third time they have gotten back together.
He went on to admit that it was actually their eighth-year run but they still celebrate every trial. His partner then chimed that the third time’s a charm.
Every relationship needs work and Ryan perfectly understands that his and Shayna’s was not an exception, so he knows that he and Shayna should constantly exert effort. He narrated that whenever they pass by an amusement park, he would point at a rollercoaster and jokingly tell his lover that it is them.
In February last year, speculations that the two had split made the rounds. According to a source, the decision was amicable and the reason behind the breakup was that they don’t share the same outlook when it comes to the timeline of their relationship.
Apparently, Shayna, a chef, wanted to take their relationship to the next level by tying the knot because for her, it was the next thing to do, the insider claimed. However, Ryan still wasn’t on that page yet.
Seven months later, the pair reunited and reconciled after they were spotted looking in love in Positano, Italy. While sources then believed that the two were just friends, they got back together and are now staying strong.
The TV personality and the food blogger first met in 2013 and Ryan immediately fell for her because of her culinary talent. After dating shortly after this incident, they parted ways in December 2014.
Ryan and Shayna got back together two years later and even looked more into each other. Love is sweeter the second time around, or what most people believe, but for them, it wasn’t enough because they called it quits again in 2019.
