Ryan Seacrest had the media talking when his girlfriend, personal chef Shayna Taylor, escorted him on the red carpet at the 2017 MOCA Gala in April. It was the first time the pair shared the red carpet, which indicated Taylor held the keys to Seacrest's heart, or as new reports indicate, his home. It now looks like she holds the keys to his new Manhattan residence, as the couple took the next step in their relationship and moved in together. Here is what we know about Seacrest and Taylor's blossoming relationship.
As People tells it, the 42-year-old host of the iHeartRadio show On Air with Ryan Seacrest dated Shayna Taylor several years ago. Now the two are again an item. The news comes not long after Ryan Seacrest accepted a position as Kelly Ripa's new co-host on Live! with Kelly (which is now Live! with Kelly and Ryan, of course). During the hiatus in Seacrest and Taylor's relationship, he dated other women in the industry, including Julianne Hough of Dancing with the Stars fame. In fact, in a talk with Ripa, Seacrest divulged he nearly married someone once, saying,
I did get close [to marrying someone], and I didn't do it, and it was the right move. But I love the idea.
To whom Ryan Seacrest was referring is unclear. However, now that he and Shayna Taylor are moving in together, some people wonder if the couple might be headed for marriage now that they are cozying up in the same New York City home. Then again, Seacrest may not have time for additional changes in his personal life because his notoriously demanding work schedule is busier than ever these days.
As mentioned, Ryan Seacrest now has co-hosting duties with Kelly Ripa in addition to his radio show. Plus, there are reports ABC bought American Idol on Monday, May 5. Rumors suggest Seacrest may be a frontrunner to become the host of the new version of the show. If Seacrest were to land the gig on the reboot of the vocal competition, he would have to fly back and forth between Los Angeles, where American Idol reportedly will film, and his new home in NYC, where he now lives with Shayna Taylor. (Yikes! At least he would get plenty of frequent flyer miles.)
So, Ryan Seacrest undoubtedly treasures the limited free time he gets to spend at home with his new roomie. Still, it sounds like he knows how to squeeze in romantic excursions with his sweetie pie. The news Seacrest and Taylor moved in together arrived on the heels of reports from April saying the couple vacationed in Paris, France.
Perhaps the City of Love had a part in Ryan Seacrest and Shayna Taylor's decision to settle down together. Then again, the duo might simply want to make up for lost time by seeing each other at home after work each day. Whatever brought about the decision, we hope living together spells happiness for the lovely pair.
