Michelle, 33, had the major operation earlier this week and later told fans it had gone well but that she was "disorentated and sore".
Today (23 Nov), Hugh - who has a baby daughter called Faith with Michelle - took to Twitter and said: "Nothing but admiration for my wife @wonderwomanshel.
"It's been a tough year starting with an emergency C section then getting loop recorder on her heart and now a double mastectomy, but she has never once felt sorry for herself.
"Her first question is always is Faith ok? #Inspirational"
He also told a well-wisher: "She is on the road to recovery... Very sore but she is a trooper."
Michelle revealed in September that she had an 80 per cent chance of getting breast cancer due to a mutated BRCA2 gene.
The former Liberty X star decided to have both her breasts removed to dramatically reduce the odds, and she will later have her ovaries removed. The gene means she also has a 30 to 40 per cent chance of developing ovarian cancer.
We wish Michelle a very speedy recovery.
