According to People, the 45-year-old uploaded the beachside image of him and Shayna rocking similar outfits as they looked out over the water, via Instagram. The image, which also showed them standing on some driftwood, was captioned:

"Happy birthday to a chef, a legend, and an angel @shaynateresetaylor! Here's a throwback from before our new normal."

The latter part of Ryan's caption pointed to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which has forced him to tape both his morning radio show and "Live with Kelly and Ryan" from the confines of his home.

[It was reported that] Mark Consuelos and Shayna Taylor joined their partners, Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest as they filmed their morning show from home on Monday.

As regards his relationship with Shayna, Good Housekeeping recounted that the duo first met in 2013 when Shayna walked into a restaurant that the TV personality was dining at with some friends.

At some point, Ryan had made his move by walking over to Shayna's table, and even then, she didn't notice that he was interested in her. Shayna, herself, told Good Housekeeping that her friend had typed "Ryan likes you" on her phone and threw it at her. 

Even at that, it took the 28-year-old, who attended culinary school and did private chef work in her early 20s for individual homes in LA, a minute to digest the fact.

Eventually, she accepted that Ryan was interested in her, and the duo began a relationship. Their longlasting involvement has resulted in many sweet photos and videos emerging online.

For example, Daily Mail reported that Mark Consuelos and Shayna Taylor joined their partners, Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest as they filmed their morning show from home on Monday.

Ryan and his model girlfriend even opted to rock matching outfits that included a tie-dyed white and black hoodie and sweatpants, as they shared healthy at home recipes. 

As expected, the topic was a smooth one for Shayna as she is also a wellness influencer and entrepreneur with a plan to modify the self-care industry with her blog, website, and Instagram page.
