When Ryan Seacrest first met Shayna Taylor in 2013 through mutual friends, he was not only drawn to her beauty but also her natural wit and intelligence. But, they connected on a level that most people wouldn’t think would be the game-changer – Food. During their first conversation together, Taylor mentioned that she makes amazing gluten-free pancakes and that was all Seacrest needed to hear. Although he considers himself a vegan, Ryan Seacrest loves to eat, and the connection was the starting point for a lasting friendship and much more.
While living in Corona, California, Taylor, who is currently 26 years old, grew up listening to KIIS-FM 102.7 and “On-Air With Ryan Seacrest.” In 2017, the pair moved from Los Angeles to New York City after Ryan Seacrest accepted the co-host position for “Live.” Their “food chemistry” is not the only thing that keeps them connected. They both have a passion for fitness, health, and wellness. It is undeniable that the compatibility between the couple is fantastic, and the move to New York City was a chance to put the relationship to the test. According to Taylor, “Moving to a new city was fun…living together is easy.”
The couple chooses to wake up an hour earlier than usual to spend quality time together. Typically, they will exercise together or take a walk, but the extra hour also allows them to take their time and not have to rush. Ryan Seacrest says, “I’ve always tried to put my life into a master schedule with deadlines, and I don’t want to do that [with Shayna].
At the age of 43, Ryan Seacrest remains one of the hardest working individuals in the entertainment industry, and it’s hard not to see that he absolutely loves what he does. He is the original host of American Idol, which is set to begin its seventeenth season in March 2019. Taylor, who is a trained chef, operates a food and wellness blog, “Shayna’s Kitchen,” and she has also appeared on “Live” during cooking segments.
After a brief breakup in 2014, it’s important to both of them to stay in the moment and continue the connection that brought them together, to begin with.
