Former Dancing with the Stars pro and judge Julianne Hough has the cutest relationship with NHL player, Brooks Laich, and she isn’t afraid to show it off! Latch, who plays hockey for the Washington Capitals, started dating Hough in December 2013 and they recently tied the knot in July 2017. Since these two like to keep a relatively low profile (aside from their SDA: social media display of affection), here’s a look at 10 things you probably didn’t know about their relationship!

10. How They Met

Julianne Hough met Brooks Laich after she went to a six-day seminar with her family on how to create your own destiny. It was a totally eye-opening experience for her. “I was not into it at first, but I learned so much about myself and why my relationships didn’t work that by the end I was on a high,” said Hough in an interview with Redbook back in 2014. When she got back from the trip, she ended several relationships with people she’d been casually dating at the time. “The next day, my Curve co-star introduced [Brooks and me]. It couldn’t have been a better time. We’ve been open and honest from day one,” she said.



9. They Have Two Different Stories About Why They Were Set Up

In an interview with Cosmopolitan, Hough said her friend Teddy Sears, who she was working with on a never-released horror film, set her up with Laich because he’d previously joked about meeting her. She said: “My co-star tried to invite Brooks – who was a good friend of his – to visit him in L.A. Brooks, who knows nothing about pop culture, joked, ‘What are you going to do – hook me up with that Juicy Fruit starlet?’ He’d seen the commercial and was like, ‘Where do I meet a girl like that?’ I was the girl in the commercial!” Brooks, on the other hand, recounts the story differently. In an interview with 106.7 he said they were set up because, when Sears asked Julianne if she was seeing anyone and said no, he was watching Brook’s play hockey on Game Center on his iPad. “I guess he just showed her the iPad and said, ‘Well I’ve got a guy for you,’ or something,” said Brooks.
