Wildcard SSL certificate with load balancer

I have a load balancer that terminates SSL connections and routes to multiple front end servers.

I need my LB to terminate SSL with a wildcard domain name, at multiple levels, for instance:

I have acquired a wildcard certificate for * and installed it on the load balancer.

But I’m not getting any love from the LB. is not validated by the cert.

It occurred to me that I might be confused about certs. Can * validate for as well as

If not, I have a problem, as the LB only lets me select one certificate, so I can’t solve this by adding an addition cert for the higher-level domain.

Is there a way to make this work with the DO LB? Or do I need to suck it up and set up an NGINX server?
