Ryan Seacrest has a new girl on his arm.

People magazine has confirmed that the extraordinarily busy celebrity is managing to find some time to date former Miss Teen USA Hilary Cruz.

According to the magazine, Seacrest, 40, has been out on the town with the 26-year-old former beauty queen Hilary Cruz, who now works for producer Ken Erlich.

"It's new," a source close to Ryan Seacrest said. "They're having fun."

The new couple are reportedly taking things slowly. Having met through mutual friends, Ryan Seacrest and his lady love have enjoyed each other's company on a few dinner dates, and Cruz stopped by American Idol toward the end of last season.
