THIRD TIME'S THE CHARM? Ryan Seacrest wishes girlfriend Shayna Taylor on anniversary after couple gets back together AGAIN!
Ryan Seacrest reflected on his 'rollercoaster' of a relationship as the couple recently got back together for the third time
It was when Ryan Seacrest's co-host Kelly Ripa mentioned that she and her husband Mark Consuelos were celebrating their 24th anniversary that the 45-year-old host took to wishing his girlfriend Shayna Taylor.
"I just want to say, happy third anniversary to Shayna," he said. "It is our third time together so we've gotten together, broken up, gotten together, broken up."
Hosting 'Live with Kelly and Ryan' on Friday, he wished Taylor as it was their third time breaking up and then coming back together. Ripa's 24th anniversary also marked the third anniversary of the two celebrities hosting the show together. She teased him saying that it wasn't exactly an anniversary. "No, it's an eight-year run, but it's our third run together. So we celebrate each trial," Ryan said. "Third time's a charm!" Kelly added when Ryan said, "Listen, nothing's perfect. You just keep trying until you get it right."
Ryan recalled the rollercoaster of a relationship that was. "You know, when we drive by an amusement park, I always look at the roller coaster and go, 'Look, there we are.' It's all definitely upside down loops. It's no Thunder Mountain, it's definitely the Mind Bender."
In March, he took to Instagram to share a sweet throwback image of them to celebrate her 28th birthday. "Happy birthday to a chef, a legend, and an angel @shaynateresetaylor! Here’s a throwback from before our new normal," he said.
Ryan first met Taylor, a chef and food blogger, in March of 2013 through some mutual friends. Taylor, at the time, was 21 and Ryan was 39. In February, last year, it was confirmed that Seacrest and 28-year-old Taylor had called it quits after three years together.
At the time, a source close to Taylor had said that it was an "amicable split", but it was her who wanted out. "Shayna wanted more out of the relationship. It felt like the natural next step for her. She was ready to get married, but Ryan wasn't there yet."
Ryan doesn't wish to put himself on a deadline when it comes to making long-term commitments while she prefers to live in the moment. "Family is so important to me, and to Shayna as well, but I've always tried to put life into a master schedule with deadlines, and I don't want to do that (with Shayna)," he had said in an interview, adding, "We both try to actually be in this moment, feel this connection, enjoy it and let it grow."
By September the same year, they had reconciled and have been going just fine since then.
Ryan and Taylor have had quite the rollercoaster relationship since they got together. They even broke up in 2014 shortly after they got together in 2013. Upon getting back together, Taylor moved from Los Angeles to New York City to be with him. "We’re very in sync," Ryan had said.
