It's taken a while but now American Idol host Ryan Seacrest has found love with a fresh-faced, raven-haired...labrador puppy!

The black lab pup, Georgia, moved into his Beverely Hills home five months ago 

"It's a big deal," Seacrest told People, "I've never done this before!" 

The soon to be 40-year-old added that this: " me saying to myself, 'You should have a little responsibility' ... I'm turning 40 and it's a turning point number. You go, 'Wait, you've got to grow up a little bit.'" 

The Emmy winner has built a $400 million multimedia empire, that includes American Idol, a syndicated daily radio show, the weekly American Top 40 countdown, a production company, charitable foundation, and a men's clothing line for Macy's. 

And now he has someone to welcome him over in the evenings.
