Former ‘Dancing With the Stars‘ pro Julianne Hough gushes on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show‘ about her embarrassingly romantic boyfriend Ryan Seacrest.

“Oh my gosh, he’s phenomenal,” she of the ‘American Idol‘ host to Ellen. “He’s really romantic. He’s not even in town, and I got in my car and there are flowers everywhere.”

And it wasn’t the first time, Seacrest, 35, has surprised her. He did the same thing for her recent 22nd birthday, putting flowers everywhere. “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 reality show stars have also met each other’s families, which Hough says isn’t the big deal people have made it out to be.

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