Here comes the bride! Dancer and actress Julianne Hough and NHL player for the Washington Capitals Brooks Laich are engaged and announced the happy news on Instagram on August 18. In the cute photo (that looks like the proposal took place on a cozy deck overlooking a lake), Laich embraces his new fiancee` while she smiles and looks down at her engagement ring.

"We are overwhelmed with joy and excitement to share with you our recent engagement! #fiancé #love," Hough captioned the snap (Laich also posted the same photo and caption).

We can't wait to see a close-up shot of Julianne's sparkler -- but until then, all we know is that their wedding is going to have one serious dance party reception. The athletic couple has been dating since February 2014, and Hough even called Laich the "love of her life" in another sweet Instagram pic in December.


A little nature walk with the loves of my life! Amazing goal tonight sweetheart! @brookslaich xoxo
