Watch: Ryan Seacrest's GF Honors His Last Day on Live With Kelly and Ryan

Dim the lights, it's time for Ryan Seacrest's new chapter.

On April 14, the host appeared alongside Kelly Ripa for his final day on Live With Kelly & Ryan—and he had one special guest in attendance: girlfriend Aubrey Paige.

The 25-year-old even penned a message to her 48-year-old partner as he starts a new journey post-Live. "Ryan, never have I ever met a more inspiring man," Aubrey, who first sparked romance rumors with the American Idol host in 2021, began her Instagram post. "You make it look so easy, but the truth is there is just nobody quite like you. 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," the model continued. "May it be filled with total presence, joy and relaxation in every single moment. The best is yet to come."

Kelly Ripa & Ryan Seacrest's Friendship

Ryan—who will continue with his radio show and his American Idol gig—also commemorated his last day on Live with his own Instagram message. 

"I'll miss all of it, especially sharing a cup of coffee with everyone in the morning, watching at home," he wrote. "I'm truly grateful and honored to have been a part of it for 6 years. Thank you. See you this Sunday at American Idol from Hawaii."
