Ryan Seacrest Pranks Tanya Rad for Birthday Surprise: Watch


Happy Birthday, Tanya Rad! Ryan Seacrest and Sisanie helped celebrate our resident #modernwoman’s birthday on Thursday, July 18, by surprising her on-air and gifting her the most perfectly curated present. 

The surprise resulted in Ryan pranking Tanya on-air which had even us nervous ...

“I don’t like surprises,” Tanya nervously said before the reveal. “Literally, I have no idea [who it could be] —is it somebody famous? … Beyoncé?” she hilariously asked. 

“Beyoncé declined … appreciate the pull you think we have, but we did not get to Beyoncé,” Ryan hilariously told her, before teasing: “Well, Dr. Screen Time was kind enough …”

Tanya, shocked, replied: “Please don’t even — that’s what I was going to guess, but I was like ‘There’s no way’ …” 

It turned out to not be Dr. Screen Time, the man Tanya's been dating virtually after a six-hour long FaceTime first date, much to her relief. 

“I just had a panic attack,” Tanya exclaimed. “… I am literally sweat under my armpits, it’s like you have no idea … My heart just like dropped.”

Watch back the video above to see who Ryan actually surprised Tanya with and to see what Sisanie gifted our resident #modernwoman!

Happy Birthday, Tanya!
