Have you talked to them in person? Those are signs of an overworked CD. I've admittedly done this, but it's usually when I'm overtasked and the workload hasn't been corrected yet. However, I've never missed the deadline. So, perhaps find them in person and see what you can do to help make sure they meet their deadline.

...my boss is constantly asking for a status and telling her it’s with the CD is not a good enough answer. Any suggestions? My last resort is having to ask my boss to help light a fire under them

Maybe you don’t know the whole story. As a CD who knows what it is like to be scheduled into meetings every second of the office day and then has to figure when to brief teams, oversee work, edit, pee, read emails, etc. it can be rough getting to all of the daily demands. Follow up in person and ask if there is a time that works so you can quickly go through it together. We are not all dicks, just super super busy.
