What’s Shayna Taylor‘s is Ryan Seacrest‘s.

The Live with Kelly and Ryan co-host, 43, stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to share an anecdote about his unintentionally outfit mishap.

“I went back to L.A. last weekend, and I get very few nights off with my girlfriend [Taylor], and I said, ‘Hey, let’s do a date night. I’m going to barbecue,'” Seacrest explained to Fallon, 43. “I get home, and I look at my closet, and I have a few clothes there.”

Then Seacrest spotted the fateful shirt: “I pull it out, and I feel it, and I’m like, ‘God, I don’t know why I didn’t bring this to New York. This is great.’ It’s very soft. It’s got a nice dip. So I put it on.”

He was ready to debut his new look. “I’m so proud of it, and I’m standing by the grill, and I say, ‘Hey babe, what kind of kebab… would you like?’ She says, ‘Why are you wearing my shirt?’ I was wearing her shirt, and I was actually kind of proud of it. #WhyIShouldBeSingle.”

PEOPLE exclusively confirmed in May 2017 that Seacrest and Taylor, a personal chef, had moved in together in Manhattan after an April jaunt to Paris. The duo had previously dated a few years earlier.

In September, Seacrest raved about Taylor on Live. When Kelly Ripa, 47, shared a study that male-female relationships are more successful when the man is less attractive than the woman, Seacrest replied, “I’m good!”

“Shayna’s special,” Ripa said. “She’s got it all.”

Seacrest answered, “I know. It’s frustrating.”

In October, Seacrest brought Taylor, who graduated from the Art Institute Culinary School, on Live for a “Banana Bread Bake Off.” He said, “[I’m] proud and excited to have her here.”
