Julianne Hough is going to be a bride! The Dancing With the Stars judge (and two-time champ) announced the happy news on her Instagram account today, next to a heartwarming photo of her jumping on now-fiancé, Washington Capitals hockey player Brooks Laich, in excitement.

"We are overwhelmed with joy and excitement to share with you our recent engagement! #fiancé #love," she wrote alongside the adorable photo, in which she also can't help but gaze at her new engagement ring. Groom-to-be Laich posted the same photo with the same caption, a sweet gesture of excitement and solidarity.

All other details are scarce, except for the fact that the proposal took place in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, where Hough's granparents live, E! News reports.

Dating since 2013, Hough hasn't been shy when differentiating her love with Laich from her exes (which includes Ryan Seacrest). Last year she told Redbook: "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," she explained. "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 Ryan Seacrest], who knows?"

We couldn't be happier for the couple and know their wedding is going to be incredible. Between the dancers and hocky players in attendance, we're pretty positive some serious viral-worthy moments (hopefully including brother Derek Hough and fellow Dancing With the Stars co-stars!) will come out of the celebration.
