It’s love! Julianne Hough and her new beau, hockey pro Brooks Laich, have been trying to keep their budding romance quiet but there’s just no fighting their feelings. The Washington Capitals player tweeted an adorable snapshot of him and his gal pal taking in his beloved D.C.

“Great day spent with my lovely @juliannehough in downtown @washingtondc - love this gal and this city!!!” he tweeted March 31. In the background we spy the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool and the Washington Monument, which has us immediately flashing to that one romantic scene in Forrest Gump. You know the one.

While Julianne and Brooks probably didn’t wade through the waters, we’re almost as happy with them airing their love online! These two have been staying real quiet about their relationship with Brooks reluctant to say much more than “she’s just a sweetheart, very loving, very giving” and commenting on how he’s a “pretty lucky guy.”

Seeing Julianne in D.C. is an encouraging sign that their LDR is going well. The Dancing With the Stars alum currently lives in California while Brooks calls the nation's capital home (if you didn’t pick up on that already). Judging by how happy these two look to be, we have to wonder if a little relocating isn’t on the table. They play hockey in L.A., right?
