“It was an amicable split and they’re still really close,” says the source of Seacrest, 44, and Taylor, 26, who had been dating for nearly three years.
“They still love and care about each other,” the source adds.
After meeting through friends in 2013, the pair soon began dating, and after an initial breakup in late 2014, they rekindled the romance.
“We had both matured,” Taylor told PEOPLE last fall.
When Seacrest was tapped to co-host Live with Kelly and Ryan in 2017, Taylor, a trained chef, moved to New York City from Los Angeles with him. “We’re very in sync,” Seacrest told PEOPLE in November, adding that their cross-country move had been an “adventure” they’ve both embraced.
While Seacrest is famously one of the busiest stars in show business, he and Taylor, who runs the fast-growing food and wellness blog Shayna’s Kitchen, were committed to making time for each other.
Self-avowed fitness, health and wellness buffs, the duo counts tango lessons, boxing and yoga among their recent favored activities.
Still, when asked about future plans last fall, Seacrest chose to focus on the present.
“Family is so important to me, and to Shayna as well, but I’ve always tried to put life into a master schedule with deadlines, and I don’t want to do that [with Shayna],” he told PEOPLE. “We both try to actually be in this moment, feel this connection, enjoy it and let it grow.”
