Julianne Hough has been single and ready to mingle since her split with Ryan Seacrest in March, but that all changed yesterday. The former Dancing With the Stars pro is “in love” and shared a pic of her kissing her object of affection in public to boot!

However, it’s not who you’d think it is, or even what species you’d imagine. Yup, Jules is in love with a dolphin, and snapped a few adorable photos kissing Purina, a 14-year-old dolphin at Sea World!

While entertaining her cute nieces during their visit to California — which has included shopping, front-row seats at The Voice finale, and hanging out with Blake Shelton — Julianne took a trip to the theme park in San Diego. Clearly, everyone involved was having the time of their lives.

The DWTS fan favorite Instagrammed a pic (on left), looking adorable with a side braid tucked into a bun as she puckered up to Purina. The dolphin even looks like he (or maybe she!) is smiling in the photo. She captioned the pic, “I’m in love!” and so are we.

Even though Julianne tricked us by telling everyone she caught the love bug, we’re just glad to see her happy. She doesn’t need a man to do that — apparently just some family time and adorable animals.

What do you think of Julianne’s PDA with Purina? Sound off below!
