With a new year comes plenty of new exciting changes in not only your life but the lives of those around you. And for celebrities Julianne Hough and Brooks Laich, breakup rumours are looking like a pretty big part of those changes.

If you watched Dancing with the Stars over the years, you may remember Hough as a peppy, fun, competitive blonde who helped some of their favourite celebrities nail some fancy footwork. Although she's no longer on the show, she's still kept booked and busy in recent months.

In 2013, Hough was introduced to Canadian NHL player, Brooks Laich. The pair began dating in 2014, Laich proposed in 2015, and they were married in July of 2017, near Couer d'Alene, Idaho.

The professional dancer and the hockey star couldn't get enough of one another in the beginning — they were constantly posting adorable selfies and videos to Instagram and talking about new and unique ways that they were working to improve their relationship with one another.

Lately, Laich and Hough have been sparking a lot of breakup rumours, especially after the DWTS alumn was spotted without her wedding ring.

The former reality TV star posted the above video of her decorating a Christmas tree to Instagram back in December, sans her sparkly rock from Laich.

This could all be a coincidence, but fans of the couple couldn't help but notice that the Canadian NHLer's latest Instagram post also dropped some subtle hints about a "new stage" in Laich's life.

"In 2020 I look forward to releasing old identities, and stepping into a new chapter in my life. I find myself wanting to officially say the words 'I retire' from professional hockey, instead of vehemently resisting it as I have been for the last 2 years. I feel a new stage of life calling me, and though I don’t exactly know what it is yet, it feels right, and exciting!", Laich wrote in his caption.

The 36-year old also went on to say that he's recently taken up new hobbies such as reading, colouring intricate mandalas, singing in church, and dancing, just to name a few.

It's unclear whether these new and exciting changes involve Hough or not, although it is worth noting that the last time the couple posted a photo of one another was in September of 2019.

Neither Laich nor Hough has yet to address any of the rumours, and it will be interesting to see exactly what the new year has in store for them.
