Ryan Seacrest says he’s been too busy with work to get married

Ryan Seacrest thinks he needs to ‘grow up’ and find a work-life balance because he puts all his energy into work.

The American Idol presenter  – who’s in a relationship with Shayna Taylor – thinks his dedication to his career could be one of the reasons why he has never married as he’s always either at work or feeling ‘drained’.

Recalling his busiest working time, he said: ‘There were five daily responsibilities. You lose the balance and you are drained by the end of every day and you’ve gotta go do it again the next day.

‘So that’s always been a tough struggle. I mean, maybe it’s perhaps why I’m not married now. So thank you for this therapy!’

The TV host continued: ‘I do have to grow up a little bit and realise that there needs to be a work-life balance.’

Ryan first met 28-year-old chef Shayna back in 2013 and the pair have split and reunited several times over the past seven years.

But the 45-year-old host has always loved working in front of a live audience and his ambitions grew and grew after he landed his job on American Idol.

Speaking on The Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter podcast, he explained: ‘I always wanted it, I never had it and I couldn’t believe I got it.

‘I wanted to have a touch-point to an audience at every part of the day. So that would be wake up and drive in; that would be a primetime TV show; that would be a cable TV show; that would be an award show.’

He continued: ‘My model was to always have a connection with the audience, no matter what time of day or day of the week.’
