On Thursday, July 22, the former Bachelor revealed the mastitis — an inflammation of the breast tissue that leads to infection — "is getting worse even on antibiotics." Alongside a video to his Instagram Story of Burnham lying in a hospital bed with a face mask on, he added, "Hate this for her," with a broken red-heart emoji.

The 39-year-old explained the former Bachelor contestant was receiving antibiotics through an IV and had scans done to check for any abscess, noting she would have to stay overnight for observation. "She's been through a lot this week," he wrote on another video of the mother-of-three lying in bed.

Meanwhile, Luyendyk headed home to take care of their first daughter, 2-year-old Alessi, and newborn twins, Senna and Lux, who the lovebirds welcomed in June. On Friday morning, July 23, the handsome hunk shared an adorable video from home as he fed the twins.

While sharing that he spent the night with his kiddos, Luyendyk said he'll be heading back to the hospital as soon as visiting hours open again to see his "#1 bb," referring to his wife — who he proposed to on the After the Final Rose special after breaking off his engagement to his season 22 winner, Becca Kufrin.

The couple — who met on the ABC reality dating show in 2018 — announced their two buns in the oven last December. The exciting news came only months after Burnham revealed she suffered a miscarriage that May.

Days after Burnham gave birth to her twins, she shared that the family would be leaving the hospital without their newborn daughter. The reality star couple — who wed in Hawaii in 2019 — explained she was having trouble breathing and had to stay in the neonatal intensive care for another week.
