Derek Hough and Hayley Erbert captivated audiences with their chemistry well before they started dating.
The former Dancing With the Stars pro first connected with Erbert after she was cast as one of the dancers in his and sister Julianne Hough’s Move Live Tour in 2014. By July 2015, they were a couple.
Derek played coy about his plans to propose to the So You Think You Can Dance alum for years, but his feelings were clear as he gushed about his girlfriend constantly.
The couple performed together as part of Derek’s fall 2021 residency at the Venetian in Las Vegas, and Derek joked about getting married at one of the city’s famous little white wedding chapels during one of their first shows.
“Honestly all jokes aside, we’re just playing up here,” he explained after dropping to one knee in front of Erbert — to tie his shoe. “But it really is really special to be able to do something that you love on the stage with somebody that you love so much.”
The twosome announced their real engagement in June 2022 and tied the knot one year later.
