Julianne Hough has revealed that she is “not straight” while posing nuder for a magazine cover.

The former Dancing With The Stars judge said she opened up to her husband, Brooks Laich, about her sexuality after going on a journey of self-discovery.

She told Women’s Health magazine: “I (told him), ‘You know I’m not straight, right?’

“And he was like, ‘I’m sorry, what?’

“I was like, ‘I’m not. But I choose to be with you’.”

Hough, 31, said she went through a “massive transformation” in her life a few months after she married the ice hockey player in 2017.

She said that new level of intimacy enabled her to tell Laich about her sexuality.

The dancer, who posed nude for the publication, also said she plans to evolve throughout her life.

Julianne’s husband, Brooks Laich, opened up o nhis iHeartRadio podcast "How Men Think" recently, where he revealed his wife decided not to take his surname after they married, two years ago.

"I don’t find it disrespectful,” Laich said.

"I’m obviously open to it, but at the start, yeah, it was a little jarring for me."
