Ryan has been dating model Aubrey Paige, 24, since last year, making their red carpet debut as a couple at New York’s Tribeca Festival premiere of Jennifer Lopez‘s documentary Halftime in June.
While it sounds like Ryan and Aubrey won’t be exchanging vows anytime soon, there may be a reason Ryan isn’t rushing down the aisle. During his conversation with Lisa, the radio star noted his parents have been married for 52 years, so “there’s a high bar” and “that’s in my head.”
In a 2017 episode of LIVE, Ryan talked about how he loves the idea of marriage but just wants to make sure it really lasts.
“The truth is I have this thing that I don’t want to screw it up, and a lot of times they get screwed up,” he told co-host Kelly Ripa at the time. “And so, I figured the longer I wait, the older I’ll be, the closer to death I am so I can get it in and not screw it up.”
And while Ryan noted he’s never been engaged, he said there was a time when he came close.
“I did get close and I didn’t do it,” he said, “and it was the right move.”
