Washington Capitals’ Brooks Laich Talks New Girlfriend, Julianne Hough

By: Jodi Phillips

Dancer-turned-actress Julianne Hough is proving she’s over ex-boyfriend Ryan Seacrest by publicly hitting the town with a new man, Washington Capitals player Brooks Laich.

The pair were spotted hand-in-hand in Southern California this past weekend — both outfitted with smiles — as they walked Hough’s dogs in the Hollywood Hills. 

Just days before, Laich tweeted out his support of Valentine’s Day, wishing D.C. and his fans a special day and using the hashtag “#onelove.”

The Sports Junkies, of our sister station 106.7 The Fan, had a chance to talk to Laich about his newest love connection.  

The two met through a mutual friend, actor Teddy Sears, who was working with Hough on her latest film, “Curve.” [Hough] was watching a Capitals game while on set,” Laich recalls, “and [Sears] told her ‘I’ve got a guy for you’.”  In December, the two connected and hit it off.

“She’s a cool, cool gal and a sweetheart,” he beams. “[She’s] very loving, very giving.  She puts a lot of great in the world.”

Four weeks ago, Hough posted a picture to her Instagram account wearing a Washington Capitals shirt while the team was in New York City.
