As the NHL world attempts to come to terms with the news that Alexander Ovechkin and tennis star Maria Kirilenko have broken off their engagement, at least some solace can be achieved by knowing that the relationship between Brooks Laich — Ovi’s Washington Capitals teammate — and actress Julianne Hough is still going strong.
Miss Hough celebrated her 26th birthday Sunday, and beyond the personal well wishes and presumably extravagant giving of gifts, Laich took to Twitter to smear sugary love missives all over his gal pal.
@brookslaich Thank you my darling! You are the best part of everyday for me too! I love you!
Aww, isn’t that … too much? It’s like an example of overdone puppy love. Russian Machine Never Breaks took some time to properly chronicle how Laich and Hough’s online interactions are not limited to birthday wishes, especially as it relates to Laich’s social media activity.
