SES can not verify a LightSail DNS?



I am trying to get SES verify my domain which is hosted at LightSail. There in my DNS Zone I am required to add

A. a TXT record either with _amazonses subdomain, but LightSail does not allow _
B. or a TXT with an empty subdomain, which Lightsail does not allow either.

What else can I do to get SES verify my domain at LightSail.

When you download record set for the domain you want to verify, you would see alternate domain verification record, you can add that record.

The alternate domain verification record uses an empty subdomain which LightSail does not allow for TXT records.

Or am I misunderstanding?

I can swear lightsail didn't allow _ in subdomain the last time I've tried. If AWS engineers have fixed this after my post, thank you!
