American Idol and E! host Ryan Seacrest is spending a lot of time with former “Dancing with the Stars” dancer-turned-country singer Julianne Hough. I know- Ryan with a girl? But sources say that the couple are getting serious, in spite of their busy schedules.
Are Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough a match made in reality TV heaven?
“Things have gotten more serious over the last month,” a source tells PEOPLE. “They’re perfect for each other.”
The American Idol host and the former Dancing With the Stars pro have tried to keep things quiet, but In recent weeks, they’ve been spotted getting cozy all over Los Angeles.
On June 13, the couple walked on the beach in Malibu with their arms around each other. Three days later, they dined at intimate new L.A. hotspot Red O restaurant, where a diner says Seacrest, 35, “was very attentive.” And Sunday, Hough, 21, accompanied the American Idol host on another outing in Malibu, where the two shopped at Alice + Olivia.
Hough, who split from country star Chuck Wicks last year, was also linked with comedian Dane Cook in March.
With all the shows Ryan is either starring on or producing, it’s amazing he has time for a personal life at all. He seems like a rabid workaholic and maybe a bit of a commitment-phobe. But they do look like a cute couple- two determinedly perky people with blindingly white teeth, right?
*Note by Kaiser: These photos of Ryan and Julianne are from last week – they had dinner together, but didn’t leave together, so we don’t have photos of the two of them in the same frame.
