The couple shared the news in an Instagram post on Thursday.

Kaitlyn Bristowe, former star of The Bachelorette and recent winner of Dancing With the Stars, and her boyfriend Jason Tartick — also of The Bachelor franchise — revealed on Thursday via Instagram that they both have been diagnosed with COVID-19.

Beside a lackluster photo of herself and Tartick sitting next to a Christmas tree, Bristowe shared the news. "Unfortunately, this is our Christmas card this year. We have Covid. Jason and I had been trying to quarantine before seeing family. We thought we were making a responsible decision to have ONE person over, who had been tested daily for work. Negative tests 4 days in a row. The day we saw her, she became positive which we all found out the next day."

She went on to write, "Now, like many, we will spend Christmas by ourselves. We just want to let everyone know that we thought we were being safe, but covid is bigger than us."

Toward the end of the post, Bristowe wrote that she and Tartick are thinking of "everyone who is spending the holidays alone," especially the healthcare workers who are away from their families. "We will be ok!!" added Bristowe.

Bristowe and Tartick appeared in Season 14 of ABC's dating reality series The Bachelorette, among numerous other television appearances between them, such as Celebrity Family Feud.

Earlier this year, Bristowe was crowned the winner of Season 29 of Dancing With the Stars alongside her partner, professional dancer Artem Chigvintsev.
