Julianne Hough not only posed naked on the cover of Women’s Health, but she also bared her soul for the magazine’s Naked Strength issue.
The “America’s Got Talent” judge has opened up about her sexuality after disclosing she underwent a massive transformation following her wedding to Brooks Laich in 2017.
The 31-year-old described what it was like once she revealed her truth to the professional hockey player.
“I [told him], ‘You know I’m not straight, right?’ And he was like, ‘I’m sorry, what?’ I was like, ‘I’m not. But I choose to be with you,’” she recounted to the magazine.
“I think there’s a safety with my husband now that I’m unpacking all of this, and there’s no fear of voicing things that I’ve been afraid to admit or that I’ve had shame or guilt about because of what I’ve been told or how I was raised.”
Her journey of self-discovery was partly aided as she developed her new dance movement Kinrgy, which she says helped tap into her “most authentic self.”
And while he may have been a little caught off guard at first, Laich is nothing but supportive now.
“So proud of my wife @juleshough for the woman she is, and her courage to share her journey of trials and triumphs!” the 36-year-old captioned a photo of Hough’s magazine cover.
He added, “Love you so much babe!
And while the former “Dancing with the Stars” pro didn’t elaborate on her sexuality or label herself bisexual, she did say the couple now have “a more intimate relationship.”
The “Rock of Ages” star’s latest revelation comes on the heels of previously disclosing she and Laich hired a sex therapist to come up with an “erotic blueprint” to keep their marriage exciting.
It appears to have worked!
