Ryan Seacrest's girlfriend Julianne Hough once thought he was gay.

The pair have been dating for several months, but singer-dancer and two-time winner of ABC's Dancing With the Stars Hough once rejected Seacrest's advances because she thought he was gay.

Hough talked about how the pair began dating at a dinner party to celebrate her 22nd birthday at a Mortons steakhouse in North Carolina, celebrity website TMZ.com reported.

“He was after me since I was 18,” Hough said at the party. “He totally wasn't my type … I thought he was gay.”

Hough went on to say that she only agreed to go out with him because of his persistence.

“So I went out with him on a date and I realized how much I liked him,” she added.

The pair have been spotted vacationing together in Italy and pictured touring on Seacrest's yacht.

“Things have gotten more serious over the last month,” an unnamed source told People.com last month. “They're perfect for each other.”

The thirty-five-year-old host of E! News and American Idol has dodged rumors that he is gay for years.
