Ryan Seacrest wants a family with Julianne Hough: “she’s the best part of every day”

When Ryan Seacrest, 38, and Julianne Hough, 24, first got together a little over two years ago, a lot of us thought it was a publicity stunt. I remember that he took her shopping for luxury goods in Paris and made sure the paparazzi were there to document their PDA-heavy outing. The more time that passes, the more they come across like a regular, committed couple. It also helps that we’re getting to know Julianne and that she seems like she’s much wiser and more mature than her years. During his Golden Globe red carpet coverage, Ryan gushed about Julianne’s (goofy) dress a few times, and he was genuine about it. It’s like he was looking for excuses to talk about her.

In a new interview with Chelsea Handler, Ryan continued to praise his girlfriend, calling her “the best part of every day” and admitting that they were considering starting a family together.

“She’s so beautiful…stunning,” the American Idol host said about his girlfriend of two years, Julianne Hough, on Chelsea Lately tonight when Handler flashed a pic of the glamorous duo at the Golden Globes earlier this month.

Agreeing with Handler’s assessment of Hough as a “great girl,” Seacrest called her “phenomenal.”

“She’s the best part of every day,” he said—and, since Seacrest never sleeps, that’s a long day to be the highlight of!

Asked if he wants to get married and have a family, the 38-year-old multihyphenate said, “We both do,” but that the 25-year-old [sic] Hough—not Handler—would be the first one to know when that’s about to happen.

They touched briefly on American Idol, too, Seacrest diplomatically saying that Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj have “come to work and disagreed about a thing or two, here or there, but now, today, they’re fine.”

“It just sort of depends,” he added, a master of ceremonies, as always.

[From E! Online]

In the video segment posted on E!, Chelsea ribs Ryan and tells him that she’s heard that the decor in his new house “is very feminine.” She makes constant references to the rumors that he bats for the other team. It’s a testament to Ryan’s personality that he didn’t get defensive or deny anything. Plus he practically owns E! He could easily tell Chelsea or The Soup to stop making fun of him, but he accepts the ribbing and doesn’t pull rank. When Chelsea introduced the topic of Ryan’s girlfriend, she said “I believe this relationship, actually” later adding that unlike Ryan “I don’t have to prove to anyone that I’m straight.” That’s Chelsea for ya. (Also, Chelsea says in the interview that Julianne is 25, but she’s not. She doesn’t turn 25 until July.)

As far as Ryan starting a family, I just get the sense that the dude is way too busy to think about it now. He has a radio show, he’s on Idol, he produces multiple reality shows. He looked so tired on Chelsea Lately. He probably can’t even consider having kids at this point, but at least he has plenty of time for that with Julianne. She’s young and seems too busy with her career too.

    She is so young, only 24, maybe they keep on saying she is 25 to make her seem older??

    But it is really hard to believe she is only 24!

  2. Redheadwriter says:

    He’s going to have to do a little more than that “I’m kissing my grandma at Christmas” kiss in the first photo to have kids. I hope he knows that.

  3. flor says:

    I thought she was with him to get more roles.

  4. annabelle says:

    Sure. Why not.

    While I understand – though don’t agree with – the fact that a lot actors will hide their sexual orientation in order to play the box office game, nothing RS is associated with would take a financial hit if her were an out and proud man.

    He seems like a tightly wound control freak with diva tenancies, but that doesn’t make him secretly gay.

  5. gee says:

    Even if they are ‘fake,’ I like them.

  6. Cathy says:

    I don’t watch Idol, so I don’t know much about him or her. But the pictures seem genuine. I’m glad they’re happy with each other.

  7. Joanna says:

    I don’t know if he’s gay or not. but i think that she prob lets him be the dominant one and that’s why he likes her. she kinda goes with what he wants and in return, he helps her out with her career. I’ve dated a couple of workaholics and we didn’t work out b/c i wouldn’t let them be the dominant one. i wanted an equal relationship; they wanted to be the boss.

  8. Word says:

    I still blame this guy for the infestation of the Kardashians

  9. epiphany says:

    Maybe Jeremy Renner can give him tips on handling a gestational carrier.

  10. lucy2 says:

    The relationship always seems…convenient to me. He gets a pretty girlfriend to ward off the rumors, and she gets media attention for beginning her acting career – for someone who is most definitely not an A list actor or nominee, they spent a LOT of time focusing on her during E’s red carpet show for the Globes.
    Maybe they are for real, but it never struck me that way.

  11. Jayna says:

    Julianne is trying to be a movie star right now, laying the foundation step by step with small roles to now this one. She also wants to be a singer. A baby isn’t even on her mind right now at 25.
    The movie star thing won’t happen.

  12. jacquie109 says:

    Ugh really, am I the only person who does not believe that she is only 24? Unless she has spent most of her life in the sun without sun screen she is at least 30, no one has that many wrinkles at 24 unless they have poisoned themselves with the sun. She’ll look like Rachel Zoe in 10 years….

  13. Tessa says:

    I never got the Ryan is gay rumors. He’s a disk jockey frat boy type to me; too lame to be gay. A dorky former fat kid that goes a little overboard with the grooming.

    • valleymiss says:

      There have been rumors that at the beginning of Ryan’s career, he was a twink for the late Merv Griffin who in turn as an extremely powerful media mogul, pulled a LOT of strings to help Ryan’s career…plus Ryan is just SO metro. The frosted tips, spray tan, capped teeth…it’s all a little much.

    • Skipper says:

      I don’t really get the gay rumors either. Maybe he dabbled in some behaviors to advance his career, but that doesn’t mean he prefers men. He’s just career driven.

  14. Maritza says:

    They make a cute couple. I wonder what he is waiting for to give her the engagement ring.

  15. Madriani's Girl says:

    She’s gorgeous and he looks like a platypus.

  16. blonde on the dock says:

    She and Jennifer Aniston could be sisters. They look so much alike. Both beautiful!

  17. Rose says:

    I don’t love either one of them, but I like them together and this seems legit. Even though he’s 38 and she’s 24, all you can see is that they’re a great match. All career conspiracies aside.

    Maybe I’m a little defensive because my boyfriend is 14 years older–a lot of people are cool when they learn about the age difference, but I know I’m gonna get sh*t for it at some point.

  18. Paige says:

    My sister married a guy 12 years older. I’ve always thought she gave up her youth for him. They’ve been married for twenty years or more and now it seems like she’s looking after an old man. Not for me. I like them a bit younger. Men age quicker than women imho.

    • Jayna says:

      Twelve years isn’t bad depending on the man. There are plenty of men who stay attractive, in shape, and energetic, and are interesting. On the other hand, some men age badly and don’t stay in shape.

  19. cut the bullshi*t. whens he gonna put a ring on it?

  20. StormsMama says:

    Really like them…
