March 8 (UPI) — Julianne Hough hopes to fulfill her longtime dream of having kids.
The 29-year-old dancer and television personality discussed her plans for children in an interview with Entertainment Tonight published Wednesday after marrying Brooks Laich in July.
“I’d probably want to start our family in the next 10 years,” Hough said. “We’ll see how it goes, what happens. We both wanted four [kids at first] and now we’re like, ‘Let’s just take it one at a time.’”
“I’ve had baby fever since I was, like, five,” she added. “I’ve always wanted to be a mom. Every time I see a baby, my ovaries start screaming. They’re like, ‘Yeah!’”
Hough said Tuesday in an interview with E! News that she doesn’t believe her endometriosis will affect her ability to have kids. She was diagnosed with the condition in 2008.
“The good thing is I found out that I had endometriosis when I did back in 2008, so I’ve been really lucky that I’m able to come across things that maybe could’ve been challenging in the future,” the star said.
“Now that I know, and that I’ve had conversations with my doctor, we’re good,” she added. “There are options.”
Hough is known for serving as a pro and a judge on the ABC reality competition Dancing with the Stars. She told Entertainment Tonight she won’t return for the show’s 26th season because she’s focused on other projects.
“Who knows what will transpire [in the future],” the star said. “But as of right now, I’m focusing on that show [Blackpool], my acting and then my music.”
