Julianne Hough is putting her emotions out there for all to read!
The Dancing With the Stars judge posted a photo on her with her boyfriend, Brooks Laich, and her dogs on Instagram with a romantic caption that reads, "A little nature walk with the loves of my life! Amazing goal tonight sweetheart! @brookslaich xoxo." So cute!
The Safe Haven actress and the 31-year-old Washington Capitals hunk started dating last winter after a mutual friend, Teddy Sears, introduced them to one another, but it seems their love has grown in the year that they have been together! The 26-year-old star and her hunky boyfriend have quite the life together as they're also raising her two dogs together, which she named Lexi and Harley.
But were they fans of each other's work before they got together? Not quite!
When asked by 106.7 The Fan whether or not he watched her show, he answered candidly, "To be honest, I had never seen an episode of Dancing With the Stars, but in my defense, she had never seen a Caps game either until she met Teddy."
Since then the two have done nothing but pack on the PDA and gush about each other! Laich opened up about his ladylove despite wanting to remain relatively private and dished about how it feels to be dating her.
"I don't want to get into a whole lot of it; I'm kind of shy on my personal life," he said before gushing, "But she's a cool, cool gal. She's just a sweetheart, very loving, very giving. She puts so much great out into the world. I'm a pretty lucky guy."
With a guy who talks about his girlfriend like that, you know she must be pretty happy!
"He's a wonderful guy...I'm very lucky that my friend I shot Curve with, the movie I just did, introduced us," she told E! News.
