"She's one tough baby and is loving all the cuddles right now. Only one parent was able to head back with her, and I tested negative," she said. "We can't find any antigen tests to save our lives in Sydney, but we'll keep trying and keep isolating and keep cuddling until we're well and able to break free."


Murphy said 2022 has been "a sneaky little devil so far."

"This is the beginning of a beautiful budding relationship YOU'LL SEE (pls be good to us," she wrote.

Fellow Bachelor alums Raven Gates and Catherine Giudici were among those to send well wishes in the comments.

"Awww feel better, Nora!" Gates wrote.

"Praying for her and you all, my precious friend. sending you so much love and some extra strength and energy," Giudici said.
