Ryan Seacrest and his hoppity Easter Bunny getup – complete with a tail – are gaining big likes as the 45-year-old celebrates Easter with a little costume action. On Easter Sunday, the “American Idol” host posted an Instagram video shouting out the annual calendar date, with the footage also coming as great promo for the competition series he fronts. Including judges Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan, Ryan made his full getup a buggy affair and a cast one – check it out below.
Scroll for the video. It comes as Ryan, who has his hands full with radio, “Live! With Kelly and Ryan,” and “American Idol,” proves that the work clock never stops, although this video, from the set of “American Idol,” kept it fun. Ryan, who kicked off with a bit of a no cameras please vibe as he sharply blocked the lens with his face, then seemed more than happy to be filmed, and it was quite the outfit for the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” producer.
Head-to-toe in a white bunny outfit complete with a carrot apron and a full eared head-piece, Ryan, who was definitely not recognizable beneath his suit, was seen pulling up to a parking lot in a buggy, bouncing around indoors, and big-time hanging with Lionel, who was masked and holding a takeout coffee – Luke Bryan was also seen in the upbeat post. The caption 100% gave a nod to The Sugarhill Gang’s 1980 track “Rapper’s Delight.” See more photos after the video.
Ryan, super casual but totally goofing around, was heard saying: “All right, let’s do the show.” A caption, meanwhile, read: “Making sure the hip hop don’t stop! Happy Easter to everyone, especially @lukebryan and @lionelrichie. #Easter #AmericanIdol.”
Fans have responding. “You are too cute, Ryan! Happy Easter ? ?. Hope you post a pic of Flora with her Easter Basket sometime today,” one wrote, referring to niece Flora Marie. “That song brings back good memories,” another added. See more photos below!
Late March brought a giant hoopla as “Live!” co-host Kelly Ripa took a week off, with fans wondering where the 50-year-old was and seeing Ryan enjoy the company of three co-hosts including Maria Menounos and Ali Wentworth. Ryan, who confirmed that Kelly was “off,” was, in particular, told that his “energy” with 42-year-old Menounos was great, although many viewers were pumped to see Kelly’s eventual return.
Ryan has since updated to with Kelly’s 1996-married husband Mark Consuelos a happy 50th birthday. See Kelly’s stringy bikini run with Mark below!
