All of Ryan Seacrest’s loved ones — including his rarely seen girlfriend — showed up for his emotional final episode of “Live with Kelly and Ryan.”
Several times during Friday’s show, cameras panned over to Aubrey Paige, 26, who was sitting in the audience alongside Seacrest’s parents and only sibling.
Paige, mom Connie, dad Gary and sister Meredith then joined the multi-hyphenate on stage for a final toast given by his tearful co-host, Kelly Ripa.
“We will all keep our same mailing addresses in case there is ever a wedding invitation,” Ripa, 52, quipped. “Just in case!”
Paige then took to her Instagram to gush over her hardworking boyfriend.
“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,” the brunette beauty captioned three photos of the darling duo.
“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.”
The influencer — who is more than two decades the Emmy winner’s junior — went on to explain how “excited” she is for the pair’s “next chapter,” saying she hoped it would be “filled with total presence, joy and relaxation in every single moment.”
“The best is yet to come. Cheers ?,” she concluded her congratulatory note, signing off, “Love ya babe ?.”
Paige also shared the “American Idol” host’s post about his last day to her Instagram Story, writing, “Cheers to you my love ?????? … And now time to eat ??.”

Seacrest, 48, and Paige have been dating since at least May 2021.
Their romance first made headlines when photographers caught them arriving back in New York City after having spent that Memorial Day weekend together in the Hamptons.
Starting Monday, Ripa’s co-host will be her husband, Mark Consuelos, as they kick off “Live with Kelly and Mark.”
Seacrest, who made his debut on the ABC morning program in 2017, announced his departure in February.
Though many fans were shocked, insiders told Page Six at the time that his exit from the show was actually a long time coming given his level of fatigue from balancing so many projects.
