Julianne Hough and Brooks Laich Separate After 2 Years of Marriage

The former Dancing with the Stars pro/judge, 31, and the hockey player, 36, announced their engagement in August 2015 following a year and a half of dating. They tied the knot in July 2017 in an outdoor ceremony outside of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.

The split comes after multiple sources told PEOPLE earlier this year that the stars had hit a rough patch in their marriage. Fans began speculating about a split after noticing that Hough wasn’t wearing her ring while co-hosting live on New Year's Eve on NBC.

"She's very independent and a free spirit, and that's been tough for Brooks and their marriage," one source said at the time.

Despite the split, the two appear to have remained friendly. Earlier this week, Hough applauded Laich's series of shirtless "thirst trap" photos on Instagram, commenting, "This is awesome haha 🤣🔥 Also the fact that you just figured out what a thirst trap is… 🤣"
