'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.

Today and everyday I am blown away by the beauty of this man. The selfless need to give me what I can’t give myself in the moment is one of your greatest qualities. The last few weeks have been a lot of energy output on my end with this new position on AGT, new developments for Canary House Productions along with the upcoming launch of my new company in the next few months. All these outlets are new and exciting but have required an immense amount of focus and execution, which unfortunately hasn’t left much quality time and energy for my love. I keep saying it’s a season and this won’t always be this way but it’s hard in the moment knowing I want to give more but am physically, emotionally and energetically spent. All this being said, Brooks my love, you have supported and nourished me and our relationship so that we haven’t let our connection slip. You have been so intentional and have fed my spirit and my heart during this time and I couldn’t be more grateful for you! You have been our rock! You have poured your energy in to me and have charged me with your love! Last night we had a date night after shooting AGT and spent the evening laughing, dreaming up new adventures and flirting across the table. I’m so grateful for your consistency even when times aren’t as smooth sailing as we hope. I love you ❤️

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.
