Somehow, Ryan Seacrest finds time for romance.

"He's phenomenal," Julianne Hough gushed about her ubiquitously employed boyfriend in an interview airing Tuesday on Ellen. "He's really romantic. He's not even in town and I got in my car and there are flowers everywhere!"

And to think, most guys just leave fast food wrappers in the car.

But apparently the E! News anchor, American Idol host, longtime radio personality and Emmy-winning reality-TV producer is good at the in-person stuff, too.

"And for my birthday, same thing," Hough continued. "Like, 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," she added, a hint of a blush creeping into her cheeks.

"Like in a hotel room he did that?" asked Ellen DeGeneres, a good friend (and onetime colleague) of Seacrest's who obviously wants to get to the bottom of this oft-long distance relationship.

"Yeah, because we're obviously traveling," Hough said, keeping the conversation clean.

And though Hough and Seacrest haven't done too much parading around in public together, they have spent time with Hough's parents.

"Yeah, but 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."

Except for that guy friend sitting across from your boyfriend is the one who will be giving you away at your wedding.
