Double date night! Derek Hough and new hookup Nikki Reed hit the town on Saturday, May 3, with his sister, Julianne Hough, and her hockey-playing boyfriend, Brooks Laich. Sources tell Us Weekly the foursome hit up a show at the Troubadour in L.A. before heading to a birthday party for the Houghs' Dancing With the Stars pal Cheryl Burke.
One insider says Derek and Twilight actress Reed were "making out like fiends" during O.A.R.'s record release party at the Troubadour. "They were all taking a lot of selfies and dancing up a storm," the eyewitness tells Us. Adds another onlooker: "Julianne and her boyfriend looked like they were having a dance party together."
From there, the two couples made their way to the Sayers Club in L.A., where they feted Burke's 30th birthday. A fellow club-goer tells Us that both pairs were very affectionate and into the music, and danced for hours to songs like Pharrell Williams' "Happy," Rihanna's "Birthday Cake," Beyonce's "Drunk in Love," and Cali Swag District's "Teach Me How to Dougie."
Julianne's beau was "the life of the party," the onlooker tells Us of Washington Capitals player Laich, noting that he was "constantly dancing and making jokes." (He and the Rock of Ages actress, 25, were set up by a mutual friend and have been dating since earlier this year.)
Derek, meanwhile, packed on the PDA with Reed, who split from husband Paul McDonald earlier this year. At one point during the evening, the rest of their group headed back to a private section of the club, leaving the DWTS pro, 28, and his new love interest, 25, dancing and "gazing into each other's eyes," the eyewitness says.
As Us Weekly exclusively reported last week, the pair were recently spotted making out at Rock & Reilly's in L.A. on April 18. "There was lots of PDA," an onlooker previously told Us. "Nikki was feeding him, [they were] holding hands, and they left together. They didn't seem to care if anyone was watching."
The Thirteen star was also backstage at DWTS during the April 29 episode, a source told Us. "She's such a sweet girl," an insider said. "Really down to earth. They are having fun hanging out."
