“We have telepathy,” Kelly previously gushed about her friendship with Ryan to People. “We don’t need to communicate with words, we definitely share each other’s thought processes.” Because of their unbreakable bond, Kelly even gave her pal a key to her house.
“He will do things for me if I’m traveling,” the New Jersey native explained. “I can ask him to go inside my house … and go bring my retainer out of the medicine cabinet and bring it to the remote.” But now that Ryan is considering leaving New York, things might change for the dynamic duo.
The radio personality “misses” his lifestyle in Los Angeles, an insider previously told Closer Weekly, so he was thinking about moving back to the West Coast with his girlfriend, Shayna Taylor. However, a second source assures that’s not the case and Ryan has plans to “return to set” in New York “once production resumes” following the coronavirus pandemic. That should make his pal Kelly pleased because the first insider noted she would be “upset” if she had “to replace him.”
After all, Ryan has a very close relationship with her children — Michael, Joaquin and Lola. “He does intel with my kids,” the former actress explained. “He doesn’t betray their confidences, but he will give me a heads up if there’s something going on because they don’t think of him as an adult … he’s one of them.”
Kelly has even given Ryan relationship advice. She and her husband, Mark Consuelos, have been telling him it’s time to get engaged to Shayna. “They’ve been on his case for about a year now,” another source told Closer in October 2018. “Kelly and Mark not only adore her, but they also don’t want Ryan to lose her.”
Although the American Idol host “trusts Kelly,” he’s also very “scared” about becoming a married man. However, “he loves what [Kelly] and Mark have and is slowly warming up to the idea of marriage,” the insider notes. With Kelly’s advice, Ryan will be a great husband and maybe one day, an even better father.
