A mega-mansion for a mega-star!

American Idol host Ryan Seacrest has purchased the former Beverly Hills, Calif. home of talk show host Ellen DeGeneres and her partner, Portia de Rossi, for close to the asking price of $49 million.

In addition to the 9,200 square foot main house, there are three guest houses and two pools sitting on a total of 2.87 acres where Ryan, 37, can relax when he’s not busy working one of his many jobs.

When Ellen purchased the house for $29 million, she too, bought it from a famous name. Who?

The hilarious 54-year-old comedienne turned talk show host, who is being honored with the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor later this year, purchased the home from Max Mutchnick, who co-created the Emmy-award winning sitcom, Will & Grace.

However, the reason it is much more expensive now that Seacrest is purchasing, is because Ellen and Portia bought the adjacent homes to expand the property.

Who knows, maybe this means he’s ready to settle down with girlfriend of two years, 23-year-old Rock of Ages star Julianne Hough?

Also, if you remember, we also recently got a look inside Ryan’s Hollywood Hills home, which he listed in order to purchase his brand-new digs. You have to admit, he has great taste!
