According to the Daily Mail, Hough and Laich didn't just share a walk together ... They made a day of it.

Laich is not Hough's first romance since her very public split with Ryan Seacrest. However, this seems to be the first one she's flaunting. After her break up with Seacrest, Hough had been spotted with film director Ari Sandel and many sources, including People, revealed that the two were dating.
