Julianne Hough is celebrating her first birthday as a married woman, and to ring in her 29th year on earth, she stripped down to her birthday suit on a beautiful beach next to her new husband, NHL player Brooks Laich.
The couple said their “I do’s” on July 8 in Idaho, where Hough used to spend her summers growing up. After their fairy-tale wedding, the couple immediately jetted to La Digue Island, Seychelles, a tropical paradise in the Indian Ocean, for their honeymoon.
The newlyweds have been keeping their fans updated by sharing on Instagram photos of the love-filled trip.
Hats off to my beautiful wife @juleshough – wishing you the happiest of birthdays today! You are full of so much goodness and love, your joy is contagious, and I am so grateful that it's me you choose to spend your life with! You are the best part of every single day, happy birthday babe, ❤️B! #honeymoonbirthday

Honeymooning definitely brings the best out in both of them. Hough radiates happiness and doesn’t even need to wear makeup to help her look flawless.
