There was a time when people used to actually take out ads in the newspaper to notify the public when a couple got engaged. While creative engagement聽announcements are still amazing, if you鈥檙e a celeb, you probably can get the job done just by sharing the news with your 1.7 million followers on social media. The lady of the pink hair Julianne Hough did exactly that today via Instagram. The DWTS star said yes to her NHL player boyfriend, Brooks Laich, yesterday during their family trip to Lake Coeur d鈥橝lene in Idaho. Yup, the hockey player proposed with Julianne鈥檚 family present, as we know Jules was playing lakeside with her nieces and nephews just three days ago on the same trip.


Julianne and Brooks posted matching pics to let the world know what they鈥檙e getting married! Yaaaaaaaaas! Here鈥檚 what they wrote in the caption: 鈥淲e are overwhelmed with joy and excitement to share with you our recent engagement! #fianc茅 #love鈥

The super photogenic and social media savvy pair make appearances on each other鈥檚 social media on the reg, so announcing their engagement this way only feels right. And it certainly looks like Julianne can鈥檛 get enough of her ring. While ring pics are yet to come, we鈥檙e sure we鈥檒l get a snap of that on Julianne鈥檚 new lifestyle site, which promised us some love and relationship content after all.


According to US Weekly, Julianne, who is starring as Sandy in the live TV production of Grease next year (how perf is that casting?), and the Washington Capitals centerman started dating in February of 2014. We wonder how Julianne鈥檚 two King Charles Cavalier spaniels Lexi and Harley feel about getting a new dad. Considering how heavily featured they already are on Brooks鈥 Instagram, we鈥檙e going to say they probably adore him already.

Congrats to the happy couple!
