"Dancing With the Stars has always been my family, so the fact that we're all embarking on these big milestones in our lives at the same time is pretty awesome," shared Hough, who announced her engagement to NHL pro Brooks Laich in August. "I think we're all just getting older and growing up, what's happening?!"

While many dancers on the show have found love -- Witney Carson just tied the knot with her high school sweetheart, Carson McAllister, earlier this month -- Hough's brother, Derek, is still single.

"You know what? Derek is so talented, he's got so many things cooking right now with everything going on," she told ET on the carpet. "He's just so, so driven by what he's doing and he's got so many things coming up that I think people are going to be excited about."

He isn't the only one with exciting projects in the family, however, as his sister is currently gearing up for Grease: Live. Hough couldn't contain her excitement over the playing the iconic role of Sandy while chatting with ET.

"People always ask me if I'm nervous to do live things, but that's what I feed off of, that adrenaline," she revealed. "There's nothing like it. We actually get a live audience which hasn't happened in these [previous TV] live performances. So we have a live audience, [we have] Boys II Men, we've got Carly Rae Jepsen as Frenchy -- we have the best time on set, we're having a blast."

"We're like little kids in high school again, it's so much fun!" she continued. "I'm living my dream, too, so I feel very blessed."

So what was her reaction when she found out Boys II Men would be joining the highly-anticipated special that will air Jan. 31 on FOX?

"I think everybody had the same reaction, 'Are you kidding me? Boyz II Men, OMG!'" she gushed. "I think [Beauty School Dropout] is one of the most fun numbers people will remember from this show."
