Julianne Hough Reveals She’s “Not Straight” In New Women’s Health Issue

Julianne Hough showed strength and plenty of openness in her new Women’s Health cover story.

She told the magazine that four months after the wedding, she opened up to her husband about her sexuality.

I [told him], ‘You know I’m not straight, right?’ And he was like, ‘I’m sorry, what?’ I was like, ‘I’m not. But I choose to be with you.’”

I think there’s a safety with my husband now that I’m unpacking all of this, and there’s no fear of voicing things that I’ve been afraid to admit or that I’ve had shame or guilt about because of what I’ve been told or how I was raised,”

I was connecting to the woman inside that doesn’t need anything, versus the little girl that looked to him to protect me,” she remembers. “I was like, ‘Is he going to love this version of me?’ But the more I dropped into my most authentic self, the more attracted he was to me. Now we have a more intimate relationship.

Her husband, Brooks Laich, posted the following on Instagram, praising his wife.

So proud of my wife @juleshough for the woman she is, and her courage to share her journey of trials and triumphs! You can learn more about it below, and join the movement she is creating surround personal transformation and growth! Love you so much babe!
