Laich, who plays hockey for the Washington Capitals, shared the same photo on his Instagram page with the same caption as Hough’s.
As Gossip Cop reported, Hough opened up about her relationship with Laich and her 2013 split from Ryan Seacrest during an interview with Redbook last year. She noted that in all her past relationships there was “nothing wrong or bad, but there was nothing right.” Hough explained, “I had one foot out because I didn’t want to get hurt. 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.”
Hough went on to say that she knew she was ready to date again following her breakup with Seacrest, after her family went on a retreat in November 2013. Soon after, she was introduced to Laich. “It couldn’t have been a better time. We’ve been open and honest from day one,” said Hough.
