Derek Hough Shares Emotional New Year’s Post Following Wife Hayley Erbert’s Skull Surgeries

Derek Hough is looking back on 2023 as his wife Hayley Erbert continues to recover from her brain injury. The “Dancing with the Stars” judge took to Instagram to share a montage of clips from the past year, including moments from his and Hayley’s wedding and her recent health complications. “In the face of uncertainty, this year has been a canvas of reflection, painted with the colors of life’s challenges and joys,” he penned. The message comes weeks after Hayley underwent an emergency craniectomy. Derek announced at the time that that his wife felt disoriented after a performance of their Symphony of Dance tour in Washington, D.C. and was taken to the hospital, where she was diagnosed with a cranial hematoma from a burst blood vessel.
