Hough’s new love?

Julianne Hough sparked romance rumours on Sunday after being spotted out with athlete Brooks Laich.

Julianne Hough is “happier than ever” with rumoured new beau Brooks Laich.

The alleged couple were seen cosying up to one another as they went for a hike in Los Angeles with her two dogs on Sunday.

After the hike, Julianne and the Canadian hockey player visited a grocery store together.

“It works out well. They’re having fun,” one source noted about their fledgling partnership, with another insider adding: “She’s happier than ever.”

This is the third time in under a week Ryan Seacrest’s ex-girlfriend and Brooks were seen snuggling in public. They were also spotted holding hands the day before Valentine’s and the pair enjoyed a romantic date at Disneyland on Saturday.

While Julianne, 25, and Brooks, 30, haven’t officially confirmed their relationship, both have hinted at it through social media.

“Share a kind gesture to a stranger today and show them the true meaning of love. Show love. Be love. Happy Valentine’s Day!!,” Julianne posted on Instagram on Thursday.

“Happy Valentines Day everyone—hope you are spending it with that special someone who makes you happy! #onelove,” Brooks wrote.

Julianne has made it clear romance is important to her in relationships, and admits it was one of the main things that drew her to Ryan Seacrest, 39.

According to the dancer, the media mogul thought of everything.

“Ryan is the most romantic person I’ve ever met,” the 25-year-old previously told Entertainment Tonight. "[He’s] very thoughtful and very generous…Things that you wouldn’t think a guy would even pick up on he’s already done five steps ago.

“When we do see each other, we are super excited and do these cute and romantic things,” she also told People in 2012.

“I’m 20 lbs. heavier than I was when we started dating. And now we always have great wine, and I can tell the difference. So I told him, ‘You ruined my life because I can’t go to a friend’s house and drink cheap wine anymore.’ "
