When Did Ryan Seacrest and Aubrey Paige Petcosky Start Dating? 

Ryan and Aubrey were first linked in May 2021 after spending Memorial Day weekend together. The couple was photographed arriving via helicopter at the West 30th Street Heliport in New York after a vacation in the Hamptons. 

At the time, Ryan was hosting Live With Kelly and Ryan with his good friend Kelly Ripa. He announced his departure from the talk show on February 16, 2023. It was an emotional moment for the cohosts as they loved working together on TV. 

Kelly was a fan of Ryan’s former leading lady. “I am so fond of her,” the All My Children alum said about Aubrey during an April 2022 episode of the show. 

On rare occasions, Aubrey posted photos with Ryan and their fun adventures together. In April 2023, she shared a sweet tribute to her beau as he marked his last episode of Live With Kelly

“Ryan, never have I ever met a more inspiring man. You make it look so easy, but the truth is there is just nobody quite like you,” she captioned a carousel of adorable photos. “I am so beyond proud of you. Not just for your work ethic, but for your caring heart and the genuine love that you give to others.”

“I am so excited for this next chapter of your life and our life,” Aubrey added. “May it be filled with total presence, joy and relaxation in every single moment.”

Ryan Seacrest and Aubrey Paige Split

A rep for Ryan confirmed on April 24, 2024, that the talk show host and Aubrey had split.

“After three beautiful years together, Ryan and Aubrey have mutually decided to part ways,” a source revealed to People. “They plan to stay in each other’s lives as good friends and support one another’s endeavors.”

Prior to the shocking news, Ryan and Aubrey had shut down split rumors. After Ryan accepted his new gig as host of Wheel of Fortune in September 2023, rumors began circulating that the pair had split because Ryan was absent from Aubrey’s Christmas 2023 celebrations with her family. They cleared up suspicions by celebrating New Year’s Eve together in New York City.

Shockingly, Ryan gave a shout-out to Aubrey on Instagram for Valentine’s Day in 2024 after years of keeping their romance rather low-key on the social media platform. Fans could not believe their eyes!

“Happy #ValentinesDay @aubreypaige_ , can’t wait to eat that cookie dough with you but first, @disneyparks churros,” he captioned the post. The entertainment mogul included photos captured during a trip to Disney with his girlfriend.

Before the breakup, Ryan and Aubrey were also “discussing” having a child together, a source exclusively told Closer. They also got a dog together in February 2024.
