The Footloose star has been dating the Washington Capitals skater since last year (14) and on Tuesday (18Aug15), Hough took to to announce the happy news, posting a photo of the couple embracing while Hough admires her ring.

She added the caption, "We are overwhelmed with joy and excitement to share with you our recent engagement!"

Hough, who previously dated country singer Chuck Wicks and TV personality Ryan Seacrest, recently told Redbook magazine she was sure Laich was her Mr. Right, stating, "Every relationship, there was nothing wrong or bad, but there was nothing right. I had one foot out because I didn't want to get hurt. And I didn't say what was on my mind because I didn't want to ruffle any feathers. I needed to be perfect.

"Now I'm not holding anything back because I'd rather get my heart broken than never know what it is to be completely, madly in love. If I had been this open in my last relationship (with Seacrest), who knows?"
