Ryan Seacrest would love to be a married man! Serving as man of honor at his sister Meredith’s recent wedding prompted the beloved television host to contemplate his own future nuptials.

“So, did she inspire me to get married?” Seacrest, 41, said during an interview with ET at 102.7 KIIS-FM’s Jingle Ball in Los Angeles on Friday, December 2. “I really enjoyed it. I thought to myself, ‘This is something everybody needs.'”

When asked if he plans to get married, the On Air with Ryan Seacrest host replied, “Of course. Of course, eventually, yeah.”

For now, wedding bells may have to wait for Seacrest. Along with his television and radio gigs, his production company is busy producing two shows: Keeping Up With the Kardashians and Rob & Chyna on E!

“I don’t know that we have announced [season two] yet, but we have had incredible success with the first season [of Rob & Chyna],” he told ET. “I mean, we were all very excited to see how many people were tuned in and watching the show.”  

Despite his busy schedule, Seacrest prioritizes his family. During a recent appearance on Live with Kelly in November, he opened-up about being his sibling’s man of honor. “I was so nervous about giving a speech in front of 110 people and in front of her and her husband,” he reflected. “She’s literally my best friend… And in the middle of it, I cried and I turned my back on everybody.”

Seacrest joked that his sister’s nuptials diverted his mother’s attention. “What I loved about this wedding… My sister’s younger, and my mom thought I would be the first,” he said. “So I’m good for a year. And if they have a kid, two years.”
