Julianne Hough has nothing to hide when it comes to the love she has for her man. The Rock of Ages star declared her love for boyfriend Ryan Seacrest on Friday while promoting her new musical movie on his radio show. According to People, 22-year old Hough closed the flirty interview with a simple, “Alright. Love you. Bye” after Seacrest complimented the movie and shared how proud he was of his gorgeous gal. The radio host was later teased by members of his staff for not returning the ‘I love you.’ But between Seacrest’s praise over his girlfriend and Hough’s declaration, love seems to be the least of their worries.

Telling your significant other you love them for the first time is a huge step in any relationship. Here are some tips to help you communicate your feelings in the best way:

1. Go on a special date: Plan an amazing, romantic date that sets the mood for what you want to say. Show your honey how the night is different from the rest.

2. Present a nice gift: Great gifts can easily serve as an ‘I love you.’ Imprinting those three magic words on a piece of jewelry can be a unique way to always remember the moment.

3. Invite them to meet your family: Show your sweetie how important they are by allowing them to meet your family. A family dinner is a great step to take right before you say ‘I love you.’
