It’s over— already!— for Bachelor in Paradise couple Krystal Nielson and Chris Randone!
The couple— who met in ‘Paradise’ and married a year later (also in ‘Paradise’) announced over the weekend that they are calling it quits on their marriage after less than eight months.
Krystal and Chris released a joint statement on Friday letting their fans know that they were breaking up, but they did not reveal what caused the very sudden split.
“It hurts to announce that at this moment, we have mutually decided to separate. Never did we imagine this scenario, but we’ve come to a point where we both need to work on ourselves,” the couple wrote in a statement posted to the official Bachelor Nation website. “We are best friends that love and care for each other so deeply. We’ve appreciated everyone’s love and support so far throughout our journey and we just ask that you please respect our privacy as we navigate through this.”
Krystal and Chris met on ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Season 5 in 2018, and became engaged at the end of that season. In June 2019, they got married, with Bachelor host Chris Harrison performing their wedding ceremony. The wedding footage was shown during ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Season 6 last summer.
‘Bachelor’ fans seemed surprised by the split, as the couple had been very vocal about their desire to have children this year.

Last February we decided to take a fertility test….and the results were NOT what we expected. We found out that my AMH levels, a hormone that deals with ovarian reserve, tested very low. This means that the amount of viable eggs I have is lower than average for my age group and could also lead to implications for egg freezing/IVG and early menopause… which basically made me want to cry.😭 We felt confused, conflicted and it was a conversation that had us really map out the potential of our future. Did we have time to put off kids? Or did we need to re-arrange our priorities because we didn’t have as long of a timeline as we expected?😳 We decided for me to get off birth control and re-test my hormones in December. I also didn’t have health insurance so a doctor visit and test would’ve run me $800! I opted for the @modernfertility at-home test that was super affordable and I had my results back within just a few days. 📦 I did a full breakdown of my results in my stories if you wanna check it out! And I just want to say thank you to @modernfertility for making fertility testing super affordable and available to the modern women!🙏 Ladies, it’s important to know YOUR BODY so that you can make the right choices for YOUR FUTURE. Whether you are looking to start a family sooner than later, I would 100% recommend getting your hormone levels checked! And I even have a discount code for you to get $20 off your fertility test! ❤️ ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ http://modernfertility.com/krystal
Chris and Krystal have not posted about the split on their individual social media accounts.
They are just the latest ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ couple to shock Bachelor Nation with a split. Last month, fan favorites “Grocery” Joe Amabile and Kendall Long broke up. They met during ‘Paradise’ in 2018 and had been together ever since.
