"Sad news to report: [Chris] and [Whitney] are no longer engaged...," Bachelor creator and executive producer Mike Fleiss tweeted out on Thursday.

The end of their engagement comes just two weeks after Whitney, 29, joined Chris, 33, on his Arlington, Iowa farm.

At the time, Chris called her "a natural" as she had her first day planting corn.

More recently, Whitney has spent her time bonding with her former Bachelor contestants Becca Tilley and Kaitlyn Bristowe, which sparked rumors that there may have been trouble on the farm.

ET spoke to Chris and Whitney after they first got engaged at the end of season 19 of The Bachelor, and Whitney spoke about the fact that only six couples are still together out of the 28 seasons of the two Bachelor series.

"I think that it is important to not focus on that and to focus on us as a couple," she said.

Chris said that he was confident that his relationship with Whitney's would stand the test of time. "We didn't go on this show for anything but for finding someone and our number one focus now is to continue that relationship that we developed on the show," he said. "I wouldn't have gone on if I would have looked at the past."

The couple was engaged for just over 6 months. See them talk about their engagement in the video below.
