The “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” star, 43, said she expected to “hold his hand” by his bedside as he “moaned and groaned in pain,” but instead she found him “wheeling himself around, laughing with his friends.”
“It’s a miracle, a straight-up miracle,” she said. “He’s made of something really tough, that guy. You’ve always been able to see that in him. He is recovering incredibly, and I’m so grateful.”

“These 30 plus broken bones will mend, grow stronger, just like the love and bond with family and friends deepens,” he wrote on social media alongside a photo of himself in a hospital bed with a doctor stretching his leg.
“Much love and appreciation to you all,” he added.
