Overwhelmed Poet for Ryan to be a 'Man of Honor'
As we already mentioned above, Meredith is the only sister of the co-host of Live with Kelly and Ryan, Ryan Seacrest. The sister and brother duo, therefore, definitely have a beautiful connection because they are very close to each other.
In November 2016, the former host of ESPN's Radical Outdoor Challenge stepped up over the weekend to help with the big wedding bash of his sis Meredith as the Man of Honor. In an extravagant marriage ceremony, the two siblings even worked together.
Actually, last year, sister Meredith asked Ryan to be her man of honor in her wedding through a poem posted on Instagram. She said:
“You’ve been by my side all of my life and I wouldn’t want you anywhere else when I become a wife. I’m so lucky to have you as a brother, and couldn’t imagine celebrating with anyone other. So basically what I’m trying to say… Will you be my Man of Honor on my special day?!”
The mega-producer, who recently ended his 15-season run hosting "American Idol," even shared the wedding pictures of Meredith and Jimmy, claiming that he is very proud to be a honor. Therefore, we can obviously see the pure love of the two siblings.
