Shayna Taylor celebrated her relationship with Ryan Seacrest just weeks before their split.

Taylor dedicated an Instagram post to Seacrest in honor of Valentine’s Day, in which she referred to the television host as her “best friend.”

“Happy Valentine’s Day to my best friend,” she wrote. “I hope everyone’s day is filled with love. Whether it be from a friend, a family member, or loved one … We all deserve a little love today.”

Meanwhile, Seacrest did not post a photo of the former couple on Valentine’s Day. Taylor last appeared on his social media account on Christmas.

On Wednesday, a source confirmed to PEOPLE that Seacrest and Taylor split after three years together.

“It was an amicable split and they’re still really close,” said the source of Seacrest, 44, and Taylor, 26.

“They still love and care about each other,” the source added.

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.

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.”
