Ryan Seacrest Overwhelmed by Girlfriend’s Family

Thursday, February 7, 2013

RYAN Seacrest is overwhelmed by his girlfriend’s huge family.

The American Idol host has been dating Julianne Hough for two years and while he is close to her brother Derek, he sometimes finds it hard to cope with her 200 relatives.

“Derek and Ryan are great, they’re good friends and I’m good friends with Ryan’s sister. But Ryan gets a little overwhelmed at times [with my family],” Julianne said.

“He has five people in his family and there’s 200 people in my immediate family … there’s a lot of action happening!”

Julianne, 25, has previously admitted Ryan, 38, was her “first celebrity crush”, and she was hesitant to go out with him when they first met.

“I’m kind of dating my first celebrity crush, so I feel pretty fortunate,” she said.

“I was reluctant because he is such an influential guy and what if it didn’t work out? Our first date, I was so nervous that I just sat there and interviewed him with questions like, ‘Are you loyal?’ and, ‘Are you close to your family?’ “
