There's no question this must be excruciatingly difficult on the entire family.

We couldn't be happier for Julianne Hough!
Though we aren't entirely shocked that the blonde beauty said "yes" to her NHL star beau, Brooks Laich, after hearing about the specifics that lead up to her engagement!
While at the 2015 Industry Dance Awards on Wednesday, Julianne's brother Derek Hough shared a few insider details about the special moment — or rather moments.
"[I'm] so excited. We actually spent the week at the lake house and all the family was there, the kids, nieces and nephews. And we spent the most magical, amazing week together and then at the very end [they] got engaged. He's a great guy, I just couldn't be happier for them."
In fact, the hockey hunk proposed to the Dancing With The Stars judge with a custom designed, oval-cut diamond ring by Lorraine Schwartz, which also happens to be more than six carats.
Color us jealous!
An insider explained:
"It's such a beautiful stone. Brooks started working with Lorraine about eight months ago and it was really important to find the perfect stone that reflected Julianne's classically chic style."
We don't know what's more precious: this story or the stone itself! LOLz!
Apparently, Brooks went the old fashioned route and made sure to ask Miz Hough's papa's permission before getting down on one knee.
"They locked themselves out on a deck — they were out there for a good two hours talking so I kind of had an idea. I was like, 'Oh, ok. I see what's happening!'"
That's so sweet!
