Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard is asking fans to pray for his family after he suffered an injury in a dirt bike accident earlier this week.
The superstar took to Instagram on Friday (Aug. 21) to reveal that he sustained a blown ankle after he was riding his dirt bike at the track, over jumped a jump and landed flat. Hubbard explained that he ruptured his Achilles tendon and broke the bone on the inside of his ankle. He plans to have surgery next week.
He says his doctor hopes to have him walking in about five weeks, however, the injury comes at a less than ideal time as his wife, Hayley, is expecting to deliver their third child within the next few weeks.
“Couldn’t be worse timing. I’m really bummed,” he says in a video posted to Instagram. “I’m upset that I can’t be helpful around the house as much as I’d like to be. I know God’s teaching me something through all this and I’m gonna try to stay positive.”
According to Tyler’s post, Hayley is due with their son in about four weeks.
Their baby boy joins big siblings Olivia Rose, 2, and Luca Reed, 1.
After he joins their family, the Hubbards say they are finished having kids.
“We’re looking forward to experiencing that again and then just knowing we’re going to be finished. This is our family, and let’s grow together,” Tyler previously shared.
Florida Georgia Line recently released a 6-Pack EP that includes the duo’s latest single, “I Love My Country.”
