Julianne Hough engaged to NHL player Brooks Laich

Julianne Hough announced on her Instagram page that she just got engaged to hockey player boyfriend Brooks Laich!.

The Dancing With the Stars judge and her Canadian NHL star fiancé (currently playing with the Washington Capitals) have been dating for less than a year, and were set up by a mutual friend.

“We’ve been open and honest from day one,” Julianne said in an interview with Redbook last year, adding that she and Brooks have a “solid foundation.”

“We are overwhelmed with joy and excitement to share with you our recent engagement! #fiance #love!” she wrote on Instagram (Brooks added the same post to his Instagram account as well).

Hough and Laich began dating in late 2013, about six months after Hough ended her three-year relationship with “American Idol” host Ryan Seacrest. This will be the first marriage for both.
