Dancing With the Stars judge Derek Hough announced that his wife Hayley Erbert is in “stable condition” after she was hospitalized and underwent an “emergency craniectomy” on Wednesday.

“At the end of last night’s tour performance in Washington D.C., my wife Hayley became disoriented and was taken to the hospital,” he wrote on Instagram. “She was diagnosed with a cranial hematoma from a burst blood vessel and required an emergency craniotomy. She is in stable condition.”

Hough continued, “I want to thank the first responders and medical personnel who have cared for and continue to care for her. I ask for your prayers and positivity during this time.”

Hough and Erbert embarked on their current Symphony of Dance tour in September. Following his announcement, the couple’s friends quickly took to the comments section of the post to wish Erbert a speedy recovery.

"Praying for you guys," Kevin Jonas wrote, while Jenna Dewan added, "Prayers and love for you both !!!"

“Focusing all my positivity and well wishes directly toward Hayley,” DWTS season 32 star Xochitl Gomez noted. “She is a shining light.”

Hough and Erbert first met when she joined the So You Think You Can Dance tour in 2013, but sparks didn’t fly between the pair until she joined the DWTS team years later. The couple, who got engaged last year, officially tied the knot this August.

Erbert had a craniectomy. An earlier version of this post said she had a craniotomy.
