During an interview on Tuesday’s The Project, Keith admitted his wife sustained the injury while ‘running around their neighbourhood’ in Nashville.

‘Five weeks ago she was running around the neighbourhood as she does and just didn’t see a pothole and rolled her ankle and got a small break in her ankle,’ he said. 

‘So she’s been relegated to the boot for the last handful of weeks and is still sort of getting through it, but her spirits have been amazing I’ve got to say.   

‘She has been handling it way better than I would have.’

Nicole’s injury caused concern and confusion among fans last weekend. 

A picture of the actress wearing a walking ‘moon boot’ at Keith’s drive-in concert for healthcare workers in Tennessee was shared to Instagram, with no explanation. 

It was the first time she and her husband had been seen in public for weeks. 

'She's been relegated to the boot for the last handful of weeks and is still sort of getting through it, but her spirits have been amazing I've got to say,' gushed Keith on Tuesday
