Julianne Hough, the renowned host of Dancing With The Stars, recently reached out to her fans on Instagram, calling for their prayers and love during a difficult time. Her brother Derek’s wife, Hayley, is currently recovering from a cranial hematoma in the hospital. Julianne shared Derek’s original statement on her Instagram story and added her own heartfelt message, emphasizing the importance of sending healing energy and love to Hayley and Derek.
Derek, a professional dancer like his sister, revealed that Hayley became disoriented after their recent tour performance in Washington D.C. Unfortunately, Hayley was diagnosed with a cranial hematoma caused by a burst blood vessel, which ultimately required an emergency craniectomy. Despite this distressing situation, Derek mentioned that Hayley is now in stable condition. The dancer expressed gratitude towards the first responders and medical personnel who took care of and continue to support Hayley.
During this challenging time for the Hough family, friends and colleagues of the dancing siblings have rallied together to provide support and well-wishes. Alfonso Ribeiro, Julianne’s co-host on DWTS, expressed his love and prayers for a speedy recovery. Alyson Hannigan, a previous contestant on the show, sent her love and positive energy as well. Even Heidi Klum took a moment to share her strength and love for Hayley and Derek. Other notable figures such as Nina Dobrev, Charli D’Amelio, and Ariana Madix also left supportive comments on the post.
Derek and Hayley’s journey began in 2014 when Hayley, a former competitor on So You Think You Can Dance, interviewed for a touring opportunity with Derek and Julianne. Since then, she has been an integral part of their dance tours and has even worked as a troupe dancer on six seasons of DWTS. The couple tied the knot earlier this year after being engaged in 2022. Julianne’s close relationship with Hayley, spanning almost a decade, highlights just how deeply invested she is in her brother’s wife’s recovery.
Amidst the unfortunate circumstances surrounding Hayley’s health, Julianne has had a busy year. She dedicated time to redecorating her stunning $2 million LA home, creating a space that brings her joy and tranquility. Additionally, in September, Julianne welcomed a new furry friend named Sunny into her life. This marked a significant moment for Julianne, as it came three years after the passing of her two beloved King Charles Spaniels.
Julianne Hough showcases her unwavering support for her brother and his wife, Hayley, who is currently healing from a cranial hematoma. The overwhelming response from friends, colleagues, and fans highlights the power of love and positivity in difficult times. As Julianne continues to navigate her own personal journey, she remains steadfast in her commitment to her family, spreading love, and finding solace in her beautiful home and the companionship of her new pup, Sunny.
