Julianne Hough has kept her relationship with Ryan Seacrest to herself the last few months, but on Monday, she finally opened up about dating the radio and “American Idol” host.

During an interview to promote her role in “Burlesque,” taped for Tuesday’s episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Julianne revealed Ryan is a wonderful boyfriend.

“Oh my gosh. He’s phenomenal,” Julianne told Ellen, when the talk show host asked if he was a good beau.

“He’s really romantic,” Julianne continued. “He’s not even in town and I got in my car and there are flowers everywhere.”

Julianne, who previously dated country cutie Chuck Wicks, said Ryan is fond of giving her lots of gifts.

“For my birthday, same thing — like flowers everywhere,” Julianne told Ellen. “I was almost embarrassed. You walk in and you’re like, ‘Is this my room? I don’t even know.’ I’m kind of embarrassed.”

The singer, dancer and actress said Ryan has met the Hough parents, but said it was no big deal.

“Everyone’s like ‘Oh you met the folks?’ Its like, I don’t know. Both of our folks are like our best friends so when we hang out, its more like hanging out with friends,” she said.
