Julianne Hough: I’m engaged!

Julianne Hough is to marry boyfriend Brooks Laich after more than a year of dating.

The Dancing with the Stars professional dancer has been dating the Canadian hockey player since February 2014. On Tuesday the 27-year-old revealed her beau had popped the question in an Instagram post to her fans.

“We are overwhelmed with joy and excitement to share with you our recent engagement! #fiancé #love, (sic)” she wrote alongside the photograph.

In the image, the dancer can be seen straddle-jumping the 32-year-old while sticking her left hand out towards the camera. Brooks has his back to the camera while a beautiful lake view can be seen behind them.

The Safe Haven actress met Brooks a year after her three-year romance with Ryan Seacrest came to an end. Julianne opened up about what went wrong in her relationship with the American Idol host a few months after their split.

"Every relationship, there was nothing wrong or bad, but there was nothing right. I had one foot out because I didn't want to get hurt. And I didn't say what was on my mind because I didn't want to ruffle any feathers. I needed to be perfect,” she told Redbook magazine. "Now I'm not holding anything back because I'd rather get my heart broken than never know what it is to be completely, madly in love," she added. "If I had been this open in my last relationship, who knows?"
