TOP STORY: Julianne Hough & Brooks Laich Open Up About Undergoing IVF Treatment

Former Dancing with the Stars pro Julianne Hough and husband Brooks Laich got married in July 2017, and the couple is more than ready to start growing their family. Even though Hough is just 30 years old, and Laich, 35, getting pregnant the natural way hasn’t been easy, and they announced that they’ve started IVF treatments. Laich told Us Weekly, “My wife and I want to have children in our future, and going through IVF was a decision we made to increase the of that happening. I wish people would perceive it [that way instead of with] shame or guilt.”

Hough was diagnosed with endometriosis in 2008, and has openly discussed the two surgical procedures she’s had to combat the chronic pain. Endometriosis affects 1 in 10 women, and according the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, 40% of women who struggle with infertility also suffer from the chronic disease.

Laich is confident that Hough will be an incredibly mother. “The way she looks after our dogs, she treats them as her own babies,” he said. “She cares, she deeply cares, I know that she would be involved heavily in promoting the identity of a child and who they want to be in the world and how they want to show up in the world and supporting their goals and dreams. She does it with friends and people in our lives already. She does it with our nieces and nephews. She does it with me on a daily basis.”
