In an eye-opening interview with Women’s Health Magazine, professional dancer, singer, actress, and America’s Got Talent judge Julianne Hough revealed some intimate information about herself that no one saw coming…not even her husband Brooks Laich.

Laich and Hough were married on July 8, 2017 in a beautiful ceremony in Idaho. Since then, we’ve seen their love flourish on social media and in interviews. They really do seem happier than ever!

Hough graces the September cover of Women’s Health’s annual “Naked Strength” cover, and she bares it all – physically and emotionally.

In the interview, she revealed that four months after she wed former professional hockey player Laich, she began a “massive transformation.”

She says, “I was connecting to the woman inside that doesn’t need anything, versus the little girl that looked to him to protect me. I was like, ‘Is he going to love this version of me?’ But the more I dropped into my most authentic self, the more attracted he was to me.”

As she became her most authentic self, the couple began to have a more intimate relationship, which allowed Hough to finally open up to Laich about her sexuality.


She says the way she told her husband was by saying, “You know I’m not straight, right?”

The multi-talent tells the magazine, “[Laich] was like, ‘I’m sorry what?’ I was like, ‘I’m not. But I choose to be with you.’”

Since “unpacking” all of this, Hough says there’s a new sense of safety with her husband.

There’s no fear of voicing things that I’ve been afraid to admit or that I’ve had shame or guilt about because of what I’ve been told or how I was raised,” she said.

Just one day after the interview was published, Laich broke his silence.

He reposted her magazine cover and wrote, “So proud of my wife…for the woman she is, and her courage to share her journey of trials and triumphs! You can learn more about it below, and join the movement she is creating surround personal transformation and growth! Love you so much babe!”


His support means everything to her, writing back, “Thank you so much for your continued support through all of this!
