Julianne Hough And NHL’er Brooks Laich Enganged

Julianne Hough and NHL star Brooks Laich announced their engagement on Tuesday with an adorable photo on Instagram.

“We are overwhelmed with joy and excitement to share with you our recent engagement! #fiancé #love,” the Dancing With the Stars judge captioned the picture, where the professional dancer is wrapped around her NHL star beau with her hand extended in a happy wave as she admires her engagement ring.

The Washington Capitals player was introduced to Ryan Seacrest’s ex-girlfriend through a mutual friend back in 2013. “She’s happier than ever,” a source told Us at the time.

Hough, 27, and Laich, 32, have been dating since February 2014 – and the couple hasn’t been shy with the PDA, locking lips when they reunited at the airport in April and enjoying a romantic New Year’s Eve ice-skating date.
