"I wanted you to hear it straight from me," the 36-year-old dancing pro said in the video. "Even though I've been fully vaccinated, I've just been diagnosed with a breakthrough case of COVID."
Hough added he "just found out," and stressed to his followers that he is doing OK! "I feel strong, but I'm currently taking advice from medical professionals. Doing everything I can to get better as fast as I can,” he explained. “I'm currently in quarantine and I'll make sure I keep you guys all updated with what's going on. I just wanted to send a lot of love out there to all."
His famous pals and followers showered him with love and some well wishes on his announcement. “Sending you love & healing thoughts! Get better soon friend. 🙌🙌🙌,” Paralympian Amy Purdy — who was Hough’s dancing partner during season 18 — wrote, while a fan commented: “Sending lots of wishes for healthy recovery ❤️❤️❤️ get well soon 😍❤️🙌.”

It is unclear if the hunky Utah native — who currently serves as a judge on the hit ABC dancing series' 30th season — will be forced to sit out next week’s finale.
Hough recently spilled to OK! who he sees as the frontrunner leading up to the finale. "You know, it’s tough! Everybody says, 'Oh, come on!' But it actually is. For instance, JoJo — she was in the top all season, and then she was in the bottom two. Iman is my favorite one even though his scores have been the lowest accumulatively," the World of Dance alum dished, while talking about his partnership with The Incredible Egg.
"I am honestly blown away by Olivia Jade [Giannulli], truly. For no dancing experience — and even if she did have dance experience — she is really good and really fun to watch. She has an authentic performance and her frame — just everything about her is fantastic," he continued, adding, "Amanda [Kloots] is great, Melora [Hardin] is great. It’s going to be left up to America to decide [who wins]."
