Ryan Seacrest is such a busy guy what with his radio show and his American Idol duties (not to mention the commitment that hair has to take), that we sometimes worry he’s not making any time for love. Well, thankfully we were wrong! Turns out the 39-year-old entertainment guru has a new lady in his life and he’s revealing the details to fellow TV maverick Ellen DeGeneres.

Spilling the beans to Ellen during a recent stop by her show, he couldn’t stop gushing about his new love. She’s a little on the short side, has the most beautiful black hair, big eyes, and… wet nose?

“She’s a black lab,” Ryan tells Ellen. “That’s about all I know about dogs. That she’s a black lab.”

And a darn cute one! A giant image of the pup, whom Ryan named Georgia after his home state, took up the screen behind Ellen and Ryan as she gave him a little ribbing about his new four-legged friend.

“I’m so concerned about you having a dog. I really am,” Ellen teases.

“Why? You always say to me, ‘You’ve got to take a step in life. You’re turning 40 soon. You’ve got to commit to something.’”

“A relationship is what I meant,” Ellen counters.

“This is a relationship!”

We’ll give you that one, Ryan. Ex Julianne Hough though? She might beg to differ.
