Julianne Hough's Husband Brooks Laich Says His Happiness Levels Are High Amid Rumored Marital Issues

There are currently rumors that Julianne Hough and her husband Brooks Laich are having marital problems. However, on a recent podcast, the hockey player revealed that he was quite happy.

On Monday, January 20, 2020, Laich took part in his podcast called “How Men Think.” The athlete co-hosted the episode called “Gavin a Good Time” with Gavin DeGraw.

While taking part in a game of “Come to think of it,” the hosts had to answer a range of questions from various women. One of the rules for the game was to be 100% honest and transparent in responding.

Laich rates his happiness

Despite the rumors that Laich, 36, and Hough, 31, weren’t in a good space; when the athlete was asked how much he would rate his happiness between 1 – 10, his answer was quite surprising.

At the 19:25 mark of the podcast, the sportsman was heard saying:

“Right now? I would be an 8.5. Here’s the thing. I love the turn of the New Year. I love the turn of the new decade.”

It is with the heaviest heart that I share with you the passing of our beloved dogs Lexi and Harley. Their tragic passing has left my wife and I heartbroken. Lexi and Harley were not just pets to us, they were our children, and we loved them as such. They were the purest example of love that I have ever seen. They showed me that true love did exist in the world. The way they loved their mom @juleshough and the way she loved them back was the first time I knew that there was hope for me to have love in my life. And they accepted me into their little family, and helped me become a dad for the first time. The past 2 weeks have been filled with tears of sorrow, and tears of joy. The immense pain we feel by their loss is due to the overwhelming love we had for them. Every single beautiful part of them will be missed, but we trust that they are in a better place now, and can still feel their presence in our hearts. I want to thank the many people who have helped see us through the past 2 weeks. The outpouring of love and support we have received from our family and friends has helped heal our hearts. I am eternally grateful for everyone who has held space for my wife and I to grieve and mourn. There are too many names to list, but you all know who you are, and know that we couldn’t have made it through this without each and everyone of you. In the most sincere way possible, thank you very much. Thank you to @kristysowin, @derekhough, and @camilaforeroo for going above and beyond what we could ever imagine asking of you. There simply are no words to express our gratitude, we love you deeply and are so grateful for you. Thank you to my wife for allowing me to share in their world, and trusting me to be their dad. I wasn’t perfect, but I loved them with every ounce of my heart. And thank you Lexi and Harley, for teaching me grace, softening my heart, and showing me love. You are perfect, and may you Rest In Peace. ❤️🐶🐼🐺💑❤️

The couple is allegedly “having problems”

Sometime this month, a source reported that Laich and Hough were “having problems” in December 2019. During the last months of December, the former “America’s Got Talent” judge was seen several times without her wedding band.

Laich & Hough went on a couple’s getaway

Reports came out this year that Hough and Laich had gone on a romantic couple’s getaway one month before it was confirmed that they were having problems in their marriage. The NHL player and the ballroom dancer met up with Derek Hough and his girlfriend, Hayley Erbert, at the Nobu Hotel Los Cabos in Mexico.

Every Monday we drop a new episode of our @howmenthinkpodcast. The episode we released today was one of my all-time favorites! We compiled a list of questions from our listeners, cut them out and put them all into a hat - then drew questions from the hat. The 2 rules in this discussion: 1) you can’t skip a question you pull 2) you have to tell the truth We got into some very interesting topics about, and for, both men and women. I even spoke about a new concept I’m learning about called “pleasure first” - which is part of my journey in 2020. Check out today’s episode by clicking the link in my bio, or by searching “How Men Think” wherever you get your podcasts! There’s a ton of insight and value in today’s episode, plus it’s always funny to listen to what @gavindegraw has to say! Give it listen, and let me know what you think! 🎙 @howmenthinkpodcast
