Happy Anniversary, Gary and Connie Seacrest! Ryan Seacrest’s parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary over the weekend in Mexico with Ryan, his sister Meredith and her husband Jimmy and their adorable baby girl Flora Marie.
Seacrest shared on-air that during the celebrations he asked his mom, Connie, the secret to a lasting marriage.
“I said to my mom, ‘Now, people talk about this all the time and its kind of cliché, but what’s the key? What’s the secret? What’s it been for you guys?’” Seacrest recalled.
“And she said communication which is pretty obvious and then she said they decided early on to always have something to look forward to,” he added. “Something that creates time together or goodness. … [Like] it could be Friday they’re going to have their favorite meal. or you know in summer they’re going to go somewhere they’ve never gone before — putting it in the calendar and thinking about it.”
