The actress recently made the big announcement and is getting praised for not keeping it hidden

Julianne Hough recently had a conversation with her husband, NHL player Brooks Laich and revealed that she was not straight. The actress and dancer, who posed fully nude in the September issue of Women’s Health Magazine spoke about how she reached that conclusion.

Health problems

Hough was diagnosed with endometriosis, a disorder in which tissue similar to the tissue that forms the lining of your uterus grows outside of your uterine cavity. The lining of your uterus is called the endometrium. She discussed the matter of having children with her doctor and in the end, decided to undergo vitro fertilization. She spoke about how supportive her husband was through this difficult journey, but she feared that there was one aspect in all this where he was going to disagree with her.


On one side, she was getting more in touch with the woman inside her that doesn’t depend on anyone and on the other hand, she was someone seeking out her husband to protect her. But she laid her fears to rest as he had no trouble with her more authentic self. Thanks to that, their relationship grew stronger.

With this newfound bond, she revealed something to him which he never knew before: that she was not straight. When he replied that he had no idea, she said that responded that she wasn’t straight but chooses to be with him. With her husband knowing this matter, Hough said that she has no more emotional baggage left and would can voice things without any shame or guilt.

The actress received a lot of praise, including one from her brother and fellow dancer Derek Hough.
