Aubrey Paige Instagram
Ryan Seacrest has been dating Aubrey Paige Petcosky since 2021.
The American Idol host was first linked to the model, more commonly known as Aubrey Paige, when they were spotted celebrating Memorial Day together in the Hamptons that May. Since then, the pair have kept their relationship fairly private. They rarely attend public events together and have only walked the red carpet once since first getting together.
However, fans have received a few glimpses into the couple's romance. Shortly after making their red carpet debut, Seacrest and Paige were spotted on vacation in Ibiza, Spain, in July 2022. Then on Nov. 8, 2022, Aubrey posted a photo of the couple sharing a kiss at her 25th birthday celebration.
"I'm happy. I'm happy in the present moment," the television host said on an August 2022 episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan, hinting at his romance with Paige.
Luckily, it seems Seacrest's relationship happiness has lasted much longer than just a moment. By the end of 2022, the pair appeared to still be going strong, with the American Idol alum sharing that Paige would be his New Year's Eve kiss. "I'll get in trouble if I don't [do it]," he joked about the kiss.
It appears the couple will now have the chance to spend even more quality time together — on Feb. 23, 2023, Seacrest announced that he was exiting Live with Kelly and Ryan after six years and would be moving back to the west coast, where Paige is located in Los Angeles. Kelly Ripa's husband Mark Consuelos will be Seacrest's permanent replacement on the show.
So who is Ryan Seacrest's girlfriend? Here is everything to know about model Aubrey Paige.
She's a model
Paige has been modeling for a few years now. According to her Instagram bio, she is currently signed with Genetics Model Management.
Her first big modeling campaign was with Dick's Sporting Goods. In August 2021, Paige posted photos from the campaign on Facebook, writing, "It means so much to have been able to work for a company that originated in my hometown Binghamton, NY. Check it out online, in stores and in the DSG catalog."
She also regularly posts photos of herself from various photoshoots on Instagram.

Seacrest and Paige were first spotted together celebrating Memorial Day in the Hamptons, New York, in May 2021.
In December 2021, Paige posted a rare photo of the two on her Instagram along with the caption, "Safe to say the best part of 2021 was meeting the most incredible man 😍🙌🏼 Wishing everyone love, happiness, safety & health in 2022."
She grew up in New York before moving to Texas
The model grew up in Binghamton, New York, before moving to Austin, Texas. Per her LinkedIn profile, Paige received her associate's degree in fashion marketing from Austin Community College in 2019.
She now lives in Los Angeles
Not long after graduating from Austin Community College, Paige moved to California.
In May 2021, she posted about getting back to L.A. after some time away, writing on Facebook, "Cheers to a new chapter in my favorite city It wasn't easy getting back out here post Covid, but after a year of reflecting and resetting I finally got my butt back out to LA! I could not have done it without my incredible parents."
She comes from a big family

In a May 2022 Instagram post that included several photos of her family, Paige wrote, "Happy Mother's Day to this icon who raised us 5 kids like the ultimate boss with an abundance of love, laughter, and support 💗🙏💁🏽♀️ Blessed to be your daughter mama."
She has Kelly Ripa's seal of approval
It seems like Paige has the approval of some of Seacrest's friends — in particular, his Live with Kelly and Ryan co-host, Kelly Ripa.
"Kelly said, 'We're all happy you're here and that you exist because we weren't sure there was somebody,' " Seacrest remembered. Ripa said, "We were starting to be like, 'Maybe he doesn't have a special person and maybe we should check in on him more often?' "
She then joked that she "will go into seclusion" if Seacrest breaks up with Paige.
"That's exactly what she said to her," Seacrest said. "I said, 'That's a compliment.' " Ripa added, "I am so fond of her."
Seacrest hinted that he might be thinking about having kids with her
In a December 2021 interview with WSJ. Magazine, Seacrest said that he does want children — and that he has been thinking more about the future since meeting Paige.
In the interview, Seacrest shared, "I start thinking about blocking off certain times in my month or year or week to focus on my personal life. I do want to have kids. But I haven't even gone down that path, which is nuts at my age. I think in the last year, it's become clear to me that yes, I do want to do that … I want to be available and present."
However, in August 2022, the American Idol host said he is in no rush to get married. "I'm happy. I'm happy in the present moment," Seacrest said on an episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan. "I don't think about anything else. Why push it?" He then added, "I think having kids at the right time would be great."
She's into fitness

In addition to modeling, Paige is also an aspiring screenwriter. In March 2022, she shared a photo of a script in which a pen strategically covers the title, but it says "Written by Aubrey Paige Petcosky, Based on Real Events."
She made her red carpet debut with Seacrest in 2022
The model wore a patterned one-shoulder gown to accompany Seacrest, who wore a striped navy suit jacket and gray pants. In April, the pair attended the LACMA 2022 Collectors Committee Gala, but didn't stop for photos together.
