Julianne Hough Says Ryan Seacrest Is 'Romantic' & 'A Good Man'

Julianne Hough is having the time of her life spending time with Ryan Seacrest – even with the drawbacks that come from dating one of busiest guys in Hollywood.

“He’s a good man and he’s a romantic man,” Julianne told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Access Hollywood Live on Wednesday. “He’s a great guy and we’re both really, really happy.”

The former “Dancing with the Stars” pro said she and Ryan share many similar traits – including their love of hard work.

“We’re both really motivated and driven by what we love and what we’re passionate about,” she continued. “We’re both very passionate about our families too, so we definitely make the time for them. We’re both really, really busy and traveling. I’m always traveling, so it just kind of works out.”

Adding, “We make the time to see each other.”

Julianne isn’t able to pinpoint when she first met Ryan; she says that it’s all been one big Hollywood blur!

“It’s hard to say when we exactly met because four years ago I was on the set of ‘Dancing with the Stars’ and ‘Idol’s’ right next door, you can throw a tennis ball between the two,” she told Billy and Kit. “So, we would always see each other in the halls… but I can’t even think of when we first met.”
