“World of Dance” star Derek Hough is living his best life with girlfriend Hayley Erbert as a new photo shows them hanging with friends at Disneyland.
There is no better way to start the new year than with your loved ones. This was the case for “World of Dance” star Derek Hough who kicked off 2020 by hanging with friends at Disneyland.
The 34-year-old took to his Instagram earlier this week to share snapshots of his trip to the happiest place on earth. Derek was joined by his girlfriend, Hayley Erbert, alongside some of their other friends.
The lovebirds took center stage as they were all smiles in the two snapshots. The playful post was captioned:
“Starting this year out with some Disneyland with the friends.”
In no time, fans of the dancer flooded the comments section with sweet remarks. Hayley and Derek are well-known for having fun with outdoor activities.
"The couple met on “Dancing With the Stars.” In fact, the lovebirds danced together to Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud” on “DWTS” Live in 2015."
This was the case in September as Daily Mail reported that the lovers were spotted riding an EBike after a lunch date at a French eatery in Sherman Oaks.
Although the bike was meant for one person, that didn’t stop the “Dancing With The Stars” alum from having a good time.
Hayley rode on the crossbar while Derek had his hands around her as they drove around. It is no surprise that Derek and Hayley have an exemplary relationship as they connect on several levels.
According to Women’s Health, the couple met on “Dancing With the Stars.” In fact, the lovebirds danced together to Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud” on “DWTS” Live in 2015.
The couple was no doubt destined to be together as Heavy reports that Derek’s sister, Julianne, was the one that helped Hayley secure a spot on “DWTS.”
The 24-year-old was reportedly hired to go on a live tour with the dancing siblings. It was while she was performing that the producer of “DWTS” spotted her and recruited her.
While it’s not sure when they became official, Closer Weekly notes that it was in 2016 that they became an actual item.
Given that it has been more than three years since Derek and Hayley have been together, fans have been eager to know when wedding bells would ring.
While no information has been given, Oprah Magazine notes that after Derek’s sister got married in 2017, the dancer has been discussing engagement details.
According to reports, Derek has opened up about waiting for the right time to pop the question. Our fingers are crossed for 2020.
