In June 2021, Us Weekly announced the host of American Idol’s affair with the model, whose full name is Aubrey Paige Petcosky.
“[They] are really happy together and doing fantastic,” a source told Us at the time, adding that the couple “kept their relationship very discreet.”
Despite the fact that Seacrest and Paige are 23 years apart in age, the Live With Kelly and Ryan cohost is no stranger to dating someone younger. Seacrest and his ex-girlfriend Julianne Hough, whom he dated from 2010 to 2013, are 13 years apart in age. He dated chef Shayna Taylor, who is 17 years his junior, on and off for eight years prior to his relationship with Paige.
In June 2020, his agent informed Us, “Ryan and Shayna chose to end their love relationship amicably some time ago.” “They’re still terrific friends and each other’s strongest supports, and they’ll always remember their time together as a couple.”
While Seacrest later moved on from Paige, it took her months to meet Ripa. The All My Children actress referred to her friend’s girlfriend as “the most exciting visitor who arrived” to her husband Mark Consuelos’ birthday celebration during an April 2022 edition of their talk show.
“‘We’re all glad you’re here and that you exist because we weren’t sure there was anyone,” Kelly remarked. “We were starting to be like, ‘Maybe he doesn’t have a special person and maybe we should check in on him more often?'” Seacrest remembered, to which Ripa added, “We were starting to be like, ‘Maybe he doesn’t have a special person and maybe we should check in on him more often?”
The actress is clearly a fan of Paige, warning her cohost that if Seacrest and his girlfriend split up, she “shall go into seclusion.”
Seacrest said, “That’s precisely what she said to her.” “‘That’s a compliment,’ I said.”
In terms of Consuelos, the radio host said that the Riverdale star expressed concerns about the couple’s height disparity.
“At the start of the night, Mark took me aside. ‘May I ask you a question?’ he said. She’s rather tall. She’s taller than you, and in heels, she’s much taller. ‘Can you explain how that works?’ He explained, “I was like, ‘What are you asking me?'” “He had that dead serious look on his face. ‘Because Kelly and I talk about it all the time,’ he says. ‘The pinnacle.’… He was befuddled. ‘When you walk together, whose arm goes where?’ he said.
