Ryan Seacrest and Aubrey Paige have called it quits after three years together. A source close to the couple confirmed the news to People saying, "After three beautiful years together, Ryan and Aubrey have mutually decided to part ways. They plan to stay in each other’s lives as good friends and support one another’s endeavors."

The pair first went public in May 2021 after they attended a party in the Hamptons celebrating Memorial Day. Seacrest, 49, and Paige, 26, attended many events together as a couple over the years, but kept most of their relationship private. Although they were a private couple, they occasionally shared a glimpse inside their relationship on Instagram. "Safe to say the best part of 2021 was meeting the most incredible man," Paige captioned photos of her and Seacrest on New Years in 2021. Paige was by Seacrest's side when he exited his six-year stint as the co-host of "Live" with Kelly Ripa, calling Seacrest the most "inspiring" man she has ever met. "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," Paige wrote at the time. "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."

Although the pair ended things amicably, rumors swirled that one reason for the breakup could have been Seacrest feeling "pressure" to propose to Paige and start a family. According to Radar Online, a source close to the pair told the news outlet that Seacrest's friends warned him that he might lose Paige, who was allegedly eager to get married, if he didn't pop the question. "A lot of people rolled their eyes when Ryan first started dating Aubrey because of the age difference, but his friends have come to admire her," said a source in 2023. They added, "Aubrey's really been there for Ryan. She's helped him get back on track after his health scare from a couple years back. Ryan's going to lose another one if he doesn't step up to the plate."
