Wynonna Judd’s husband, drummer Cactus Moser, walks again for the first time since he lost one of his legs in a serious motorcycle accident last August.
The country singer told People magazine that Cactus is back up and walking again with the help of a prosthetic leg.
“It’s been an emotional ride for me this week,” Wynonna, 48, said after her husband walked toward her for the first time since his accident.
“It freaked me out because I’ve seen him in a wheelchair and using a walker, and he just walked towards me and I was like, ‘Wow.’ I was so stunned. I saw the wreck, I saw him lose the leg.”
Wynonna added that Cactus has been positive about life in the aftermath of his accident, calling him “Mr. Happy-Go-Lucky.” She said his attitude reminds her of her “Dancing” partner, Tony Dovolani.
“It’s really irritating, because sometimes I just want to complain or act tired about dancing, and he’ll say, ‘But you’re moving and you’re looking so great.’ I’m like, ‘Go talk to Tony. You guys are so alike.’”
Wynonna and Dovolani were eliminated from the competition Tuesday night, after a poorly received samba to Def Leppard’s “Pour Some Sugar On Me,” failed to impress judges and viewers.
“I faced one of my biggest fears and I’ve made a lifetime friend out of Tony,” Wynonna said at her send-off.
