Bachelor in Paradise star Carly Waddell suffered a medical emergency late Monday night and had to be rushed to the hospital.

She was escorted by her ex-husband Evan Bass whom she met while on Bachelor in Paradise.

Evan kept fans updated on Carly’s status as the night progressed.

Evan is standing by Carly’s side through this health crisis

Evan shared on his Instagram story that he joined Carly on her first-ever ambulance ride after suffering from an unknown medical emergency.

“Carly’s first ambulance ride – she’s gonna be ok and, my goodness, this brings back some memories,” Evan said, referencing the time she accompanied him to the hospital on Bachelor in Paradise, which ignited their relationship.

Evan also posted a picture of Carly on a hospital bed as she laid motionless.

Hours later, Evan posted an update to his Instagram story. He stated that while Carly left the hospital she’s still suffering.

“Thanks for all the prayers and support. After 9 hours we left the hospital but she’s still in pretty rough shape and may have to go back,” he wrote.

“Continued thoughts and prayers are so appreciated. And she knows she’s beloved,” he added, assuring fans that he has been passing along their kind words to Carly.

He also let fans know that he received permission to post the picture of Carly in the hospital bed.

He continued, “I know y’all wanna know what’s going on but it’s her health and story to tell if she wants to share. (I did get her permission to share photo from earlier so you can relax Jan from Wisconsin.) In all the madness, she lost her phone and really needs to rest so it might be a bit.”

For now, it seems that Evan will be the one keeping fans posted on Carly’s state.

Evan is there for Carly despite their recent split

Evan and Carly were one of the few successful pairs to leave Bachelor in Paradise engaged.

However, they announced that they had separated in December 2020 after three years of marriage.

Evan and Carly share two kids, Isabella and Charlie. Despite the split, they shared that they have remained friendly.

Six months later, Evan revealed that they were trying to rekindle their relationship. He spoke on it during a Q&A on Saturday, June 12. Just two days later, Evan found himself in the hospital at Carly’s beside.

This medical emergency seems to be a true test of their relationship and if they pass, they’ll likely be stronger than ever.

The scary health emergency may even bring them closer together with the realization of how short life can be.

Best wishes to Carly, and here’s to a speedy recovery.

Bachelor in Paradise returns to ABC on Monday, August 16 at 8/7c.
