AceShowbiz - Actress and TV personality Julianne Hough has turned to in vitro fertilisation to realise her dreams of becoming a mum.
The "Rock of Ages" star, who is currently a judge on TV show "America's Got Talent", has been married to former ice hockey professional Brooks Laich for almost two years and now they are getting serious about starting a family.
"My wife and I want to have children in our future, and going through IVF was a decision we made to increase the (odds) of that happening," he tells Us Weekly.
Shortly after becoming Mrs. Laich, Hough, who revealed her painful battle with uterus condition endometriosis in 2008, told Entertainment Tonight she has had "baby fever" since she was five.
"I've always wanted to be a mum," she said. "Every time I see a baby, my ovaries start screaming... I'd probably want to start our family in the next 10 years. 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...'"
"When it happens, it happens... We're really enjoying our stage of marriage right now. We still have some things we're wanting to do but, who knows? I mean, there's never a right or a wrong time to do anything."
