Derek Hough’s Wife Hayley Erbert Says She’s ‘Grateful To Be Alive’ Following Skull Surgeries

Derek Hough and wife Hayley Erbert are giving an emotional update amid Hayley’s recovery from her brain injury. The 29-year-old dancer took to Instagram to share a candid video of the pair opening about her recent health complications after suffering from a cranial hematoma in early December. “A new haircut, a new scar, a new sac of fluid on the side of my face, which is supposed to eventually go away,” Hayley said. “A new skull. But also, a new outlook on life. Life is so precious. Spend time with the ones you love. Hold them close ’cause you never know what could happen.”
