Did Ryan Seacrest put a ring on it?

The large diamond on the ring finger of one of the American Idol host’s female travel cohorts had many wondering. According to reports, Seacrest, 40, arrived at London’s Heathrow Airport with a group of longtime friends to catch a departing flight following their Thanksgiving abroad.

Among the TV personality’s posse was a blonde woman sporting a impressive sparkler on her ring finger, launching speculation about a possible engagement for Seacrest.

But a source confirms to PEOPLE that the woman with the rock is the girlfriend of Seacrest’s friend Kurt Rappaport, who was also traveling with the group.

So the ring might be real, but it’s not from Seacrest. The entertainment mogul’s last relationship was with with model and fitness enthusiast Shayna Taylor, and their coupling ended in late 2014.
