After a very public break up with her boyfriend of almost three years, Ryan Seacrest, Julianne Hough is finally getting her happy ending. After breaking things off with radio host and TV personality Ryan Seacrest in 2013, the Dancing with the Stars champion is finally engaged to hockey player Brooks Laich.

The 27-year-old uploaded a photo of her engagement on her Instagram and gave us the details on her own personal blog.

Julianne shares, “We stood on the deck, watching the sun set over the lake and listening to our favorite songs. Not even for a second did I expect that beautiful, serene scene was about to become one of the most meaningful moments of our lives.”

The dancer-turned-actress continued, “I didn’t have any words at first (me! no words!). All I could do was explode into his arms and experience pure joy from head to toe.”

Laich proposed in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, where Hough’s grandparents live. One year earlier, Hough told Redbook how she knew Laich was her soulmate.

“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,” she said.

“And I didn’t say what was on my mind because I didn’t want to ruffle any feathers. I needed to be perfect. 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. If I had been this open in my last relationship [with Ryan Seacrest], who knows?”

A week later, Julianne was spotted sharing a few laughs with her brother Derek on the red carpet of the TV Academy Choreography Peer Reception – with her diamond on her finger, of course.
