It’s been two years since Julianne Hough tied the knot with husband Brooks Laich, and in the time since, the America’s Got Talent judge has been on a journey of self-discovery and personal exploration.
Four months after the couple got married in July 2017, Hough, 31, began her “massive transformation,” she tells Women’s Health for its September cover.
Baring all for the outlet’s annual “Naked Strength” issue, Hough admits that as she was undergoing her personal evolution, she was fearful that Laich, an NHL player and entrepreneur, wouldn’t understand.
“I was connecting to the woman inside that doesn’t need anything, versus the little girl that looked to him to protect me,” she says. “I was like, ‘Is he going to love this version of me?’ But the more I dropped into my most authentic self, the more attracted he was to me.”
As a result, Hough says they now “have a more intimate relationship.”
Becoming more emotionally and physically intimate allowed Hough to be open with her husband about her sexuality — and reveal that she isn’t straight.
