Julianne Hough’s Summer of Emmys and Engagement
By Penny Clift
The summer has been an exciting time for Julianne. She toured the country with brother, Derek, with their Move Live on Tour show. The show played to sold out crowds. Julianne is also nominated for an Emmy for the dance she choreographed with Derek. The pair performed the dance on DWTS last spring. Cross your fingers the siblings come home with the statue! The biggest news of Julianne’s summer is her recent engagement to hockey player Brooks Laich. The pair have been dating since December 2013. They were introduced by Julianne’s “Curve” co-star, Teddy Sears.
Laich worked with celebrity jewelry designer, Lorraine Schwartz, to design the perfect ring to fit Julianne’s fashion style. The result was a stunning 5 plus carat ring. Laich proposed during a Hough family get together in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Julianne’s mother tweeted a thanks to Julianne and Brooks for sharing their beautiful home during the reunion. We can only gather the couple have bought a home in Coeur d’Alene.
A big congratulations to Julianne and Brooks. I hope they have a lifetime of happiness! Julianne’s upcoming projects are “Dance Wars” where she serves as producer and creator, Judge on Dancing With the Stars and the live production of “Grease” for television.
