The ex-factor at Julianne Hough's 32nd birthday party over the weekend was none other than Brooks Laich, her estranged husband.
Over the weekend, the former "Dancing With The Stars" pro celebrated with a pool party, according to a social media video posted by her dear friend Nina Dobrev. Page Six said the video shows Julianne doing a trick on an inflatable pool toy. Brooks can be seen in the video laughing along to his estranged wife's waterlogged antics.
Interestingly, in an Instagram video posted by Julianne, presumably from the party, the birthday girl used hashtags to claim she's "single as a pringle."
Julianne and Brooks revealed in May that they had separated after nearly three years of marriage, an announcement that was made as they quarantined in separate states amid the coronavirus pandemic.
"We have lovingly and carefully taken the time we have needed to arrive at our decision to separate," the duo said in a joint statement. "We share an abundance of love and respect for one another and will continue to lead with our hearts from that place. We kindly request your compassion and respect for our privacy moving forward."
Despite the split, sources close to the couple have indicated that there is a definite chance for a reconciliation, particularly given that the former NHL player allegedly still carries a torch for Julianne.
He is "definitely still open to getting back together with Julianne," a source recently told People magazine. "If that were an option, he would be all in."
The source added, "Her friends and family love him, and everyone is pulling for him. He's a great guy, and they would love to see Julianne give things another chance."
