Ryan Seacrest Announces Gender of Sister Meredith’s Baby-to-Be!


It’s a girl! Ryan Seacrest announced on Instagram on Monday, July 2, that his sister, Meredith, is expecting a baby girl. 

Ryan helped coordinate the gender reveal, pulling off an epic fireworks show while on vacation in Europe. 

“Excited to have a niece! (I promise they’re pink…this is not a laurel/yanny, blue/white dress situation),” he captioned an Instagram video of pink fireworks shooting into the sky. Meredith and her husband, Jimmy, could be heard excitedly shouting “It’s a girl! It’s a girl!”

Ryan announced Meredith’s pregnancy in June, revealing that she’s expecting her first child with hubby Jimmy on Live With Kelly and Ryan. 

“Before we do anything else, I’ve kept a secret and I’m nervous,” Ryan told cohost Kelly Ripa at the time. “Do you know how hard it is to keep a secret?”
