Hough & Erbert go on tour
Hough and Erbert will be touring in 2023, Hough revealed during a Feb. 17, 2023, appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show.

Hough and Erbert announced their engagement on June 2, 2023 after seven years together. The couple shared a YouTube video her engagement story.
Hough said he originally intended to propose during the couple’s April 2022 trip to Tulum, Mexico, but changed his mind before making the trip. Erbert later shared that she suspected he would propose at that point.
“I actually had a feeling he was going to do it in Tulum. … I told a couple of my friends, so it’s kind of a good thing he didn’t do it in Tulum, otherwise I kind of expected it,” Erbert said during the video.
Instead, Hough proposed to Erbert at her home.
“Our home is where we built our lives together,” Erbert said in the video. “We were quarantined there together for almost two years. It all started here, so it’s a special place for us.”
