“An inspiration to us all. Happy #50Years to Connie & Gary!” the foundation’s official Instagram account wrote alongside the image of Connie and Gary walking down the aisle after saying, “I do.”
In November, the star and his family celebrated the ninth anniversary of opening the first Seacrest Studios.
“9 years ago, my family and I opened the first #SeacrestStudios in our hometown. Today, it’s grown beyond our imagination all thanks to the patients, families, staff, and special guests who make it a place of positivity and hope with every visit,” Ryan wrote on Instagram at the time. “It became the impetus behind the 9 others we built across the country…with studio no. 11 on the way! Cheers @ChildrensATL – happy bday :).”
Last year, to honor his mother and father on Mother’s and Father’s Day, respectively, he penned sweet messages on Instagram.
“Happy #MothersDay to all the awesome moms out there, especially to my mom and sister Mere! Thank you for all the love and support. My niece #FloraMarie is lucky to have two incredible role models!” he wrote in tribute to Connie and Meredith.
A month later, he posted two photos — one throwback and one recent snap — of the father and son wearing suits.
“The man who taught me the importance of a well-tailored suit, among many other things. Happy #FathersDay dad!” he wrote.
Recently, to commemorate Valentine’s Day, Ryan shared a behind-the-scenes look at how he and Taylor celebrated the love-filled holiday.
“Early morning sunrises and late nights making deep dish cookies,” he wrote alongside the Instagram post, which featured a photo and video of the deep-dish cookie they enjoyed. “Today and every day couldn’t be any sweeter. Happy #ValentinesDay @ShaynaTereseTaylor!”
