Ireland rugby captain Brian O'Driscoll goes into hospital on Wednesday for an operation on his shoulder for a trapped nerve, according to his wife Amy Huberman.
Superglam Amy totally looked the style icon on Saturday night when she went out on the town to collect a coveted drama award.
But this week she will be playing nurse when husband Brian has the much-publicised procedure carried out.
The Irish rugby star is expected to be out for six months afterwards.
The petite actress attracted lots of admiring glances from the largely female audience at the Irish Tatler Women of the Year awards at the Four Seasons, Dublin, for her raspberry-hued long jersey dress from Covet Boutique in Powerscourt Townhouse Centre, Co Wicklow.
Joining Amy for the ceremony was her mother and former model, Sandra.
