Julianne Hough has been a singleton for a while now–since she broke up with Ryan Seacrest last March, it’s believed–but the 25-year old was spotted out recently with a hunky hockey star, prompting rumors that the two are an item.
Hough and Brooks Laich were seen walking in L.A. and holding hands on Sunday afternoon after a trip to Disney Land on Saturday. They were also spotted together the day before Valentine’s Day, but it’s not known whether they were together on the big day.
Hough and Seacrest were together for over two years, but ultimately called it off after what a source said was a timing problem.
“Honestly, their schedules were too hectic,” the source said. “It just got to be too much. I think they both just sort of knew they couldn’t do it anymore. The travel and lifestyle got to be too much.”
Since their split, Seacrest is rumored to be dating model Shayna Terese Taylor. However, he and Hough were spotted together at a Hollywood pre-Golden Globes party in January and appeared to be having a friendly conversation.
As for Hough and Laich, the pair were set up by mutual friends and are said to be very happy with one another.
“It works out well,” a source said. “They’re having fun. She’s happier than ever.”
