Not so fast! Julianne Hough and estranged husband Brooks Laich might not be done after all. The couple announced back in May in a joint statement that they were separating, but were spotted last week enjoying lunch and a stroll down the sidewalk in Los Angeles together. Now sources close to the situation are saying that the pair might be making an attempt to rekindle their romance.
The source said they are “still trying to figure things out” and “back to seeing if it can work between them.” The insider told E! News that they have been spending more time together recently.
“She is not 100 percent sure, but she is exploring her feelings and giving it a chance,” the source added. “He seems to be on the same page.”
Hough may be reportedly having second thoughts about the separation and the source says she’s concerned she moved too hastily in ending the relationship.
“With the world now on pause, Julianne doesn’t have the distractions she had several months ago and finds herself missing Brooks. It really hit her over her birthday that maybe she moved too quickly and didn’t appreciate what she and Brooks had together,” the insider noted.
Laich spent time partying with Hough at her home for her birthday back in July. In an Instagram Story photo that was posted by Hough’s best friend, Nina Dobrev, Hough and Laich can been seen playing around in her pool together.
The couple announced their split in a joint statement on May 29th after several months of speculation that things were rocky in the relationship.
“We have lovingly and carefully taken the time we have needed to arrive at our decision to separate,” the statement read. “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.”
The two spent the first few months of quarantine apart — he was in Idaho while she stayed back in California.
A source told PEOPLE that Laich would still be open to giving the relationship another shot.
“If that were an option, he would be all in,” an insider told the outlet. “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.”
A source also said that Laich didn’t want the relationship to end and he fought hard to keep the relationship intact.
