She may have played the role of a battered housewife in Nicholas Sparks‘ Safe Haven, but Julianne Hough‘s actual love life is far from that. The Dancing With The Stars alum, who lives a life of glitz and glam, knows that even when times get tough, her sweet husband, Brooks Laich, will always have her back.
“Brooks is a huge support system for her whenever she’s feeling anxious or depressed,” a source close to the couple, who tied the knot in July 2017, recently revealed to Us Weekly. “He’s the kindest man and so patient with her. He always has an intense look of love when they’re together. He looks at her like she’s the only person in the room.”

Thank you to my love for always supporting the joy I get from hosting holidays! It’s my favorite thing in the world to bring people together and create memories! 🤗💛 ~ Feeling very Blessed and Grateful today knowing that we all have the love of God pouring in to us. That we get to choose to live our lives fully free. To be our best selves instead of being imprisoned by our own fears and judgements. Whatever your beliefs are, I believe we all have the freedom to choose LOVE! 🙌🏼❤️ ~ Check out stories for all the Easter fun🐰🐣
Julianne, 30, has been open and honest in the past about suffering from anxiety and depression on top of endometriosis, a painful disorder in which tissue grows outside the uterus. Luckily, she has Brooks, 35, to lean on. Their bond is reportedly so special that even the insider dubbed them “the perfect couple.” We can’t disagree with that!
While many argue that the struggles Julianne faces could tear them apart, the blonde beauty actually believes they make their marriage stronger. “When you actually get to purge [the bad stuff] and then you’re like, ‘OK, I love you. Come back to me,'” the Footloose star once explained to the outlet.
Although she’s been struggling with endometriosis for some time, Julianne first opened up about the disorder just three months after marrying Brooks. “In the past, it was kind of a hush-hush thing, but it’s a way of life,” the actress explained to People. Julianne wanted to share her story in hopes that other women would get the courage to open up, too. “It’s that it’s OK to talk about these kinds of things.”
Luckily, the Rock of Ages actress has the tools — and her handsome hubby — to get her through the most painful moments. “[I take] a hot bath. I have a hot water bottle that I call the boiling baby, and I sleep with it and put it next to me,” she explained. “Also, stretching and almost breaking a little bit of a sweat. You don’t have to, like, go for a run, but just getting my heart rate up helps with the blood flow.”
We couldn’t love them more!
