Former Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky Updates Fans While Waiting For Coronavirus Test Results

Season 6 star of The Bachelorette, Ali Fedotowsky, is one of the most transparent reality stars around. Not only does the Massachusetts native regularly share candid updates about her life as a working mom of two young kids, but she also has been open about her body image issues. As for Fedotowsky's latest act of transparency? She revealed to fans on March 16, 2020, that she had been tested for the coronavirus. "Yes I was tested for coronavirus, and that is because I've had all the symptoms of the virus except for a fever," she said in an Instagram Story, per People. "I went a few days ago and I got an X-ray of my lungs, and it showed that I have white spots on my lungs, so they put me on antibiotics." she added, "When I went back yesterday I was like, 'It's not getting better.' I just feel like it is my responsibility to be smart and get tested, and the doctor felt the same way."

Although Fedotowsky hasn't received her test results back, she did share an important update with fans about how she's doing. 

Ali Fedotowsky is struggling with her symptoms

Never one to shy away from difficult topics, Ali Fedotowsky didn't hold back when providing an update about her symptoms on March 18, 2020. "It really really hurts to breathe and take deep breaths," the social media influencer shared in Instagram Stories, per Page Six. "Yesterday I had a fever of 100.3, today so far I haven't had a fever." Fedotowsky, who said she went to an urgent care "like everyone else" and waited for three hours to get tested, also revealed that she has "white spots" on her lungs. White spots showing up on a chest x-ray can indicate an infection, according to

Fedotowsky explained how it might take two weeks for the results to come back, a frustrating timeline for various reasons. "I tried calling yesterday thinking I could get my results if I let them know that my mom is a nurse and needs to go to work and can't go until I found out if I'm positive or not," she said. "Hopefully I'm negative."

Fingers crossed Fedotowsky joins this list of celebs who've tested negative for COVID-19

Ali Fedotowsky is focused on her family

Although Ali Fedotowsky has a lot on her plate at the moment, she's doing her best to stay focused on what's most important — the two kids she shares with her husband, radio host Kevin Manno. Fedotowsky is especially concerned about her 3-year-old daughter, Molly, who is unsettled by the pandemic. "Today Molly came up to me and said 'Mommy the world is not good. Everybody is sick,'" The Bachelorette alum wrote on Instagram. "My heart broke into a million pieces right then and there I've been trying to not have the news on in front of her. However, I turn it on here and there to get updates on what's going on in the world (when I think she occupied in the play area and not paying attention). Sometimes when you don't think your kids aren't listening, they are actually soaking up all of it." This realization inspired Fedotowsky to talk "deeper" with Molly about what's going on, asking parents for advice about how to best broach the subject. "How do you guys talk to your kids about what's going on in the world today?" she asked her millions of followers.

Of course, there's no easy answer to this question. But it's nice to see Fedotowsky forging connections with fellow parents in these tough times.

Ali Fedotowsky isn't alone in this fight

It's clear Ali Fedotowsky is going through it at the moment, all the way from her difficult symptoms to ensuring her kids remain calm amid the pandemic. Someone else from #BachelorNation who is dealing with the COVID-19 fallout? The Bachelor alum Clare Crawley, who was chosen as the Season 16 lead of The Bachelorette. Crawley was overjoyed to receive the role, telling People, I've gone through a lot of personal growth in the last couple of years," she told People. "And my goal has always been to find happiness — and love."

Unfortunately, filming of The Bachelorette has been postponed until further notice, a development the hairstylist has taken in stride. "Talk about most dramatic season ever! In all seriousness, Everyone's health is the most important priority at this time, and as I'm sure you've heard, we are pressing pause for now on filming The Bachelorette," she wrote on Instagram. "We are taking it day by day and even hour by hour as this is so unpredictable." She continued, "All I know for sure is that my heart is so full from all the love and support this far, and am still so excited for my journey to begin! I've waited 38 years for these moments, what's a little bit longer, right!"

Although Crawley's predicament isn't as serious as Fedotowsky's health concerns, it's fair to say both of these ladies could use a virtual hug right about now. Hang in there, guys!
