'The Bachelor' Chris Soules and Whitney Bischoff have ended their engagement.

NEW YORK -- Say it isn't so! "The Bachelor" Chris Soules and Whitney Bischoff have called off their engagement!

The official word came from the show's executive producer via Twitter Thursday afternoon.

Just a few weeks ago, Whitney posted a picture of the formerly happy couple getting engaged for TBT.

Chris also took to instagram as recent as two weeks ago to show them happy on his Iowa farm for planting season.

So after just two months of being out in the public as an engaged couple, they have called it quits.

Chris and Whitney released a statement saying, "Whitney Bischoff and Chris Soules have mutually and amicably decided to end their engagement. They part with nothing but respect and admiration for one another and will continue to be supportive friends. They wish to thank everyone who has supported them through this journey."

Rumors about a breakup started swirling when Bischoff stopped appearing in the audience of "Dancing with the Stars" to watch Soules perform. In published interviews, the former couple had said over and over that they were happy, but that appears to not be the case after all. They were engaged for six months.

Hopefully, we will get an update during "The Men Tell All" on this season's "The Bachelorette" with the "rose master" Chris Harrison!
