'America's Got Talent' Judge Julianne Hough on Why She & Husband Brooks Laich Don't Have Kids Yet

Julianne Hough and her husband Brooks Laich are in no rush to welcome their kids into this world and they have a pretty solid reason for that. 

The "America's Got Talent" judge, Julianne Hough, is good at nurturing people in the show and she enjoys doing that. However, the 31-year-old is not ready to nurture her babies yet.

In an exclusive interview with ET, Hough opened up about why she and her husband are not ready to have children. 


With her nurturing nature, Julianne is undoubtedly going to be a great mom when she has kids, but for now, she is okay with just being supportive of others. 

Speaking to ET about the possibilities of having kids anytime soon, she said:

"I'm not right now, no, but, you know, that's definitely been a part of my future in the past. Of what I want," Hough said

For now, extending her maternal skills to the contestants of "AGT" is as close as she can get to being a mother.   


Hough and her husband Laich are well-aware of the fact that times are changing. According to Hough, she simply enjoys being a "mama" to people.

"I mean, we're living in a different time now where that was an old paradigm of what is expected," she said. "And, it's like, I have an incredible life where I get to nurture and being mama to lots of people, so who knows." 

She further elaborated on the sentiment saying that she loves people "more than anything" and although she does not have kids, she feels like a mom. 

I just want to support and watch people be their true, authentic self and so when I see Luke out there and he's just being him and his glorious amazing self it just ...I literally feel like a proud mama," she gushed.


According to Hough, she always wanted to start a family someday. Her baby fever dates back to when she was just 5 years old!

""I'd probably want to start our family in the next 10 years," Hough shared. "We'll see how it goes, what happens. We both wanted four [kids at first] and now we're like, 'Let's just take it one at a time.'"

For now, the couple is enjoying their married life and career. With a realization that having a baby is a matter of great responsibility, Laich resonates with his wife's sentiments.
