Share this pen


Ryan Seacrest may not be married himself, but at least he has surety that a long-lasting relationship is possible. His parents just reached a landmark that most don't get to see. 

Ryan Seacrest, 45, is honoring his parents, who just made it to their 50th wedding anniversary on Friday. Happy anniversary Connie and Gary Seacrest!

According to People, the pair got married on February 21, 1970. Ryan took to Instagram to pay tribute to the lovely couple with some before and after shots. The post is found below.

Ryan honors his parents

"Cheers to 50 years!" wrote the "Live with Kelly and Ryan" daytime talk show host in his caption. Co-host Kelly Ripa claimed top comment by wishing the couple a happy anniversary as well. 

Ryan shared a horizontally split image that featured his parents on their wedding day at the top. At the bottom, the pair were seen enjoying some drinks near a beach.


In sync on the beach

The older couple both wore a pair of dark sunglasses and blue outfits in the second shot. Clearly, they're still very much in sync — no wonder their relationship is thriving. 

The Ryan Seacrest Foundation also celebrated the couple in a three-part slide show. The first slide was the wedding photo, while the next two showed the pair at the Ryan Seacrest studios.


NYFW top picks from Ryan

Ryan may not yet be married, but his parents still have a lot to be proud of. The tv-personality not only has a successful foundation, but people want to hear his views on the biggest nights in entertainment. 

Earlier this month, the media reached out to him to hear what he had to say of the outfits at New York Fashion Week (NYFW). Seacrest's favorites were Renee Zellweger, Brie Larson, and Regina King.

Ryan drops to the floor

Of course, there are also moments when the producer embarrasses those who know him. Last month, for instance, he fell out of a chair during "Live with Kelly and Ryan." 

The television host was attempting to catch a golden balloon when he ended up hitting the floor instead. After his co-host and a set worker helped him up, he went on to pick up the balloon. "I got it!" he said.

At least Connie and Gray know that they raised a son who never gives up. We hope the pair had a wonderful 50th anniversary and have many more to come.
