Despite rumors, Julianne Hough and Ryan Seacrest are not heading down the aisle soon.

According to Hough's brother, "Dancing With the Stars" champion Derek Hough, "I haven't heard anything [about an engagement]." He tells People, "I am sure I would have it if were true."

Acting like the protective big brother, Hough says he thinks his sister is "a little young" to be engaged. "But we are all very supportive, and as long as she is happy that is what matters," he adds.

Julianne Hough recently gushed about her boyfriend to Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show saying, "Oh my gosh, he's phenomenal. He's really romantic. He's not even in town, and I got in my car and there are flowers everywhere."

Hough said Seacrest has already met her parents, adding: "Everyone's like, 'Oh, you met the folks!' Both of our folks are like our best friends so when we hang out, it's more like hanging out with friends."
