Although Ryan Seacrest is a busy guy, he's finding time for romance! Just don't expect him to talk about it.
For the last month, the host/uberproducer has been quietly romancing former Dancing with the Stars stunner Julianne Hough, Star reports in our June 28 issue, on sale now. On Sunday, the couple was snapped with their arms around each other as they played with her dog and hung out with friends on a Malibu beach — and days earlier a smitten Ryan, 35, arranged a top-secret trip to Nashville — with American Idol buddy Kara DioGuardi — to watch budding country singer Julianne, 21, perform at the CMA Music Festival.
"Ryan was so excited to see Julianne that during the 10 minutes it took to get [to the show], Ryan was fixing his hair and making sure he looked perfect to see her," says a source.
But don't expect him to be talking about his new love on his KIIS-FM radio show or E! News.
"Ryan was adamant he didn’t want anyone to know he was in Nashville to see Julianne,” the source says, “because their relationship is still in its early stages and Ryan really, really likes her.”
