Brooks Laich is opening up about moving forward after his split with dance pro Julianne Hough. The former hockey star looks forward to having kids!


Brooks Laich sat in during a recent episode of "How Men Think With Brooks Laich and Gavin Degraw" podcast where he talked about life after divorce. The former field athlete broached the topic of how he's always been passionate about being a father someday.

Laich shared that he hoped the "world would be a better place" because one crucial thing for him is to become a dad! The ex-Ice hockey player mentioned that he wasn't ready for fatherhood in his twenties as he devoted all his time to hockey. He told his co-host:

... "I needed to do that for myself. So now that I'm 36, I feel I do have the space in my life…"


These days, Laich no longer plays hockey, therefore creating time to build a family. Once in an interview, Julianne Hough revealed that she and Laich never really tried having kids. She said:


"It was more of a precautionary measure; Let's do our due diligence for the future by freezing eggs."



Towards the end of May, Julianne Hough and Brooks Laich announced in a joint statement that they were calling it quits. A close source revealed to Us Weekly that the famous duo had prolonged differences on "important issues."

Last month, Hough revealed that her endometriosis condition drove her to explore possible ways for fertility. The DWTS star made it known that so far, she hasn't been having symptoms of endometriosis, and she credited her dance routine for that.



In 2017, the former "America's Got Talent" judge and Brooks Laich tied the knot. However, in subsequent years, Hough started feeling different. Laich wanted to make things work out, but he couldn't pinpoint what changes to make.

A close source confirmed this in a recent interview: "She is a deeply different person than she was when they got married, and she is proud of those differences and changes…"



In months leading up to their split, the star couple took time away from each other and were in separate cities from the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

For the lockdown, Hough chose to stay in Los Angeles while her estranged spouse was in Idaho. This gave them time to think things through.

The two realized what was best for them and jointly decided on a separation. Laich and Hough, however, seem not to have any rift as they hope to remain friends.
