Did American Idol host extraordinaire Ryan Seacrest touch a celebrity mom-to-be’s baby bump at the 2013 Oscars without permission? There’s little that’s more enticing to touch than a round, pregnant belly, as it’s just so precious, but as most mothers know, doing so can be rather taboo!

Many times, it depends on the mama and how well she knows the person daring to go there. In the case of the 2013 Academy Awards, it was actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum, and the offender? None other than American Idol host Ryan Seacrest!

Perhaps it was Ryan’s subconscious desire to procreate and caress a pregnant Julianne Hough. Regardless, some are calling the fact that Ryan reached down and touched Jenna’s belly on the E! red carpet “inappropriate.” Jenna’s husband, (hunky) Channing Tatum, reportedly seemed unfazed. Perhaps he and Ryan are buddies. In that case, it seems there’s less of a chance that he crossed any sort of line.

Jenna still seemed affable after “the touch” as well, joking with Ryan, “I’m walking the red carpet, trying to keep it together tonight, but we’re good!”

As Hollywoodlife.com reported, the insanely gorgeous expectant couple is going to have their wee one across the pond.

“We’re gonna actually have the baby in London while I’m shooting so there will be no downtime whatsoever after that,” Channing revealed.

So much for paternity leave! We’re eagerly awaiting the arrival of what is sure to be one beautiful baby.

What do you think -- did Ryan cross the line?
