This is just too awesome for words. I can’t imagine how relieved Wynonna and her husband Cactus are?! What a journey and emotional ride they’ve been on!! No matter what happens to Wynonna tonight on Dancing With The Stars, this is a true blessing and a shining star reigns….
Wynonna Judd’s husband, Michael Scott “Cactus” Moser, is doing a two-step again.
After enduring life-threatening injuries from a motorcycle accident that took one of his legs, Moser walked for the first time Monday with the assistance of a prosthetic leg.
“After eight months of waiting, he walked towards me for the first time two days ago,” Judd, 48, told People backstage at “Dancing with the Stars.” “It’s been an emotional ride for me this week.”
Fellow “Stars” contestant Lisa Vanderpump was one of the first people to walk alongside Moser.
For Judd, seeing her husband walk again “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.’”
Seeing him come full circle was an amazing experience for her.
“I was so stunned,” she continued. “I saw the wreck; I saw him lose the leg.”
Moser, 55, collided with an oncoming vehicle on Aug. 18 while riding alongside Judd who was on her own bike. The couple took the leisurely ride before their scheduled performance in Deadwood, S.D. Although Judd was not injured in the accident, her drummer husband was rushed to a hospital with serious injuries.
“The outpouring of prayer and support from friends, family and fans has been a blessing to both Cactus and I,” she said in a release at the time. “Cactus is a champion. I love him deeply and I will not leave his side.”
The couple, who married in June, continue inspiring each other through it all.
He even reassures her while she’s being whisked around the dancefloor by her partner, Tony Dovolani.
“He’s so positive,” she said of her husband. “I call him Mr. Happy-Go-Lucky. 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.’”
