From poodle skirts to black leather, anyone who has seen Grease has dreamed of living an on-screen musical love story. And Julianne Hough’s fiance woke up this morning celebrating his real-life “Sandy.”

The highly anticipated Grease: Live aired on Fox January 31, and Canadian ice hockey player, Brooks Laich, put on his very own Instagram pep rally.

“Proud to support and very excited for my beautiful fiancee @juleshough as she realizes a lifelong dream by playing #sandy in #GreaseLive tonight on Fox!!!!” Laich, 32, shared with fans. The post was met with critical acclaim following Hough’s epic performance.

We have no doubt that Hough’s future husband is “Hopelessly Devoted” to his Dancing With the Stars fiance. During her Grease: Live debut, he was her very own personal cheerleader.

“Babe be killing it! @juleshough #sandy #grease,” Laich proudly posted, along with a photo of his future wife in action. It’s no surprise that Hough’s fans shared in her fiance’s excitement about the show. “She was fantastic!” one fan replied. “Tell her she exceeded all of our expectations!

The Dancing With the Stars professional dancer teased fans with a series of short video clips on Instagram leading up to the Grease: Live broadcast. “The transformation has begun!!! #GreaseLIVE #TONIGHT on Fox,” Hough shared as she prepped for her debut.

 Hough, 27, who has referred to Laich and the couple’s two pups as “the loves of her life,” has been dating the hockey player since early 2014. The athletic duo, who have documented their love story on social media, were engaged in August of last year.

We adore her as Sandy, but what we’re really looking forward to is her debut as Mrs. Brooks Laich. Congratulations, Julianne, on a perfect Grease: Live performance! Fingers crossed that your next epic transformation will be into a beautiful bride!
