The 35-year-old singer had nothing but love for Wilson, 32, after the athlete underwent a procedure to treat his injured finger on Friday, writing in a tribute to her husband, "You're the toughest Man I know."

She continued, alongside a photo of herself standing by Wilson's bedside in the hospital, "Always dedicated and committed to do whatever it takes. I love you so much my Sweet King."

Ciara went on to thank Dr. Steven Shin and his team at the Cedars-Sinai Kerlan-Jobe Surgery Center for "taking care of my baby," before concluding her post with a series of hashtags that also included Wilson's Seattle Seahawks jersey number.

"#3 #RareBreed. ❤️💪🏽🐐," she added.

Wilson responded to Ciara's post by re-sharing it on his Instagram Story, calling the "Goodies" artist "my queen."

According to the team, the quarterback sustained "two injuries to the finger: an extensor tendon rupture (mallet finger) and a comminuted fracture-dislocation of the proximal interphalangeal joint" and underwent surgery to repair both.

"He will start therapy this weekend and it is highly anticipated that he will return to play later this season," the statement read.

Wilson's surgeon, Dr. Shin, added in a statement of his own on Friday, "Based on what I saw today, I am fully confident Russell will return to the NFL this season and play at the same world-class level that fans have come to expect of one of the game's very best quarterbacks."
