He also gave credit to Mila, adding: "I will say your wife is amazing," which Ashton confirmed by lovingly adding: "My wife is the best."

The physician spoke of how she'd been "curled up" beside him while he dealt with the illness and through his recovery.

Mila has been by Ashton's side through his vasculitis battle

"It was a beautiful thing to watch," he continued, which left Ashton emotional as he once again called his partner, with whom he shares two kids, "the best."

His family has been by his side since he revealed earlier in the year that he had been diagnosed with the rare autoimmune disease, which he opened up about on Running Wild with Bear Grylls: The Challenge.

"Like two years ago, I had this weird, super rare form of vasculitis, that knocked out my vision, it knocked out my hearing, it knocked out like all my equilibrium," he told Bear.
