The American Idol host, Ryan Seacrest isn’t feeling any pressure from his family to walk down the aisle anytime soon with his girlfriend Shayna Taylor. His family is too distracted by his sister, Meredith Seacrest, giving birth on December 10th to a beautiful baby girl named Flora. Ryan is so excited to be an uncle that he has been practicing holding a baby despite his many time consuming involvements with American Idol, Live with Kelly and Ryan, On Air with Ryan, and The Ryan Seacrest Foundation.
Ryan Seacrest is presently filming the upcoming season of American Idol. Although he has kept mostly quiet regarding what fans can expect to see, he has promised that there are going to be some very emotional and heartfelt moments on the show. All he would say was that there was one audition that was so emotional that it had everyone in the room crying.
Ryan Seacrest also started a non-profit organization called The Ryan Seacrest Foundation. Since opening, this organization has created 10 broadcast media centers around the nation, named Seacrest Studios, that allow patients and their families that are staying in the pediatric centers to take a look at the creative dimensions of television, radio, and new media. They have opened their 10th studio in Nashville, Tennessee at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt on March 18th, 2016. The organization feels that by providing these patients with these experiences it will help them to have positive attitudes during treatments. Many of the families feel that this has been an uplifting distraction from the difficulties their children face from day to day.
The Live with Kelly and Ryan co-host and producer has been very busy since joining the show on May 1st, 2017 as a permanent co-host. When being interviewed by ET’s Katie Krause, the 43 year old, admits that he still gets star struck and has moments where he is left in total astonishment when he interviews celebrities that he admires.
The On Air with Ryan host is quoted as saying, “Its in my blood to be on the radio everyday. I have done it since I was 16.”
There is no slowing down for this radio personality, television host, producer, and new uncle.
