NEW YORK (CBS/AP) Country singer and "Dancing with the Stars" pro Julianne Hough isn't making her romantic life public, but she is giving hints that rumors linking her to "American Idol" host Ryan Seacrest are true.

When asked Tuesday by the Associated Press whether she is dating Seacrest, Hough laughed and said that she wasn't going to confirm or deny anything. While she answered, Hough looked up and to the right with a coy smile on her face.

"Ryan's great. He's a really good guy," she said.

A source recently told People magazine, "Things have gotten more serious over the last month. They're perfect for each other."

According to the report, Seacrest, 35, and Hough, 21, were spotted on June 13 walking on the beach in Malibu, Calif., with their arms around each other. Three days later, they were seen together again at a Los Angeles restaurant, where a diner said that Seacrest "was very attentive."
