Derek Hough’s wife Hayley Erbert breaks silence over her recent health scare with sweet Christmas post


Derek Hough’s wife Hayley Erbert is grateful that she got to spend some quality time with her husband post a recent health scare.

“Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas,” wrote Hayley in the caption on her Instagram post, which featured the couple kissing in front of the Christmas tree.

Matching with the tree in the back, Hayley sported a pair of green pajamas and a green polka dot head scarf, which covered any evidence of her recent surgery. Meanwhile, Derek kept things cozy in a gray sweater. In the caption, she also wrote, “Hold your loved ones close and treasure every moment.”


Derek’s sister Julianne Hough commented on their post by calling them a “Christmas miracle.” Others who commented included Alfonso Ribeiro and Carrie Ann Inaba.

The Christmas post marks it the first time of Hayley on social media post suffering a cranial hematoma earlier this month. Derek had informed their online family via Instagram on December 7 that his wife had been hospitalized in Washington D.C. following a performance of her tour, A Sympathy of Dance.
