Ryan Seacrest and Aubrey Paige have made their relationship red carpet official!
The 47-year-old and his 24-year-old model girlfriend made their public debut as a couple during an appearance at the premiere of Jennifer Lopez‘s new Netflix documentary, “Halftime.”
Rumors of the pair’s dalliance started in May 2021 after they got caught in cozy poses during a Hamptons getaway over Memorial Day weekend.

ET reported that Paige rocked a multi-colored one-shoulder dress which complemented her boyfriend’s white dress shirt and navy blue striped blazer combo beautifully.
Seacrest and Paige’s red carpet appearance comes almost three months after the “Live With Kelly and Ryan” co-host, Kelly Ripa, gushed over Paige. The Blast shared that Ripa claimed she was one of the first people to meet the model.
She revealed this after the couple attended her husband Mark Consuelos’ intimate birthday party in early April. Recalling the event during an episode of her and Seacrest’s daytime talk show, she said:
“The most exciting guest that came was Ryan’s plus one, as acknowledged by every single speech given because we were all so excited.”
When it was time to give a birthday toast to her husband, Ripa ensured it was clear to Paige that her presence at the celebration made everybody happy.
The “Kim Possible: A Sitch in Time” star also admitted she was glad about the model’s existence as friends had started wondering if Seacrest had “a special person” and if they could “check on him more often.”
Then she threatened to enter seclusion if her co-host and the model broke up. As it turned out, Ripa’s husband was also concerned about Seacrest’s love life in a hilarious way.
Consuelos reportedly pulled the “American Idol” host aside to ask how the Atlanta heartthrob’s romance worked, seeing as his girlfriend is taller than he. Reliving the moment, Seacrest said:
“He had that dead-serious look. He’s like, ‘Because Kelly and I talk about that all the time. The height.’… He was so confused. He was like, ‘When you walk together, who’s arm goes where?'”
The camaraderie between Seacrest and Consuelos is expected as the TV host has been friends with his “Live with Kelly and Ryan” co-star for over ten years.
Reports and how they interact show that they share a tight bond that transcends the TV screen. What keeps their friendship going is the “trust and respect” that is the foundation of their on-air chemistry.
As for Seacrest and his woman, who officially began dating in June 2021, an insider told news outlets that the duo was “very happy together and doing great.”
Before getting into his relationship with Paige, the “American Top 40” host dated 30-year-old professional chef Shayna Taylor, who was younger than him by 17 years.
The ex-couple were together for eight years – in an on-again, off-again relationship – until they finally broke up in 2020. Before this, the TV producer was with dancer and actress Julianne Hough from 2010 to 2013.
The former item had a 13-year age difference, making Paige the youngest woman the “E! Live from the Red Carpet” host has been romantically affiliated with – although the model is significantly younger than he is by 23 years.

Since rumors of their relationship began, fans have become curious about who Paige is.
The Sun gathered that she is based in New York City and often posts about her work on Instagram to over 59k followers.
Before starting a modeling career, she attended Austin Community College, where she obtained an associate’s degree in fashion marketing.
Although Paige and her beau do not have any children together, the “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” host has not shied away from talking about him wanting children.
He noted that it was “n*ts” that he had not gone down the fatherhood path, so he was open to doing that and being “available and present.”
