Luke Combs’ wife, Nicole Hocking, has spent the past two weeks battling COVID-19. 

Nicole took to Instagram on Saturday evening to check in with her followers after being MIA on the social media platform for nearly two weeks. In her Instagram stories, Nicole revealed that she came down with COVID and that “it’s been brutal.” 

“I wish I was like those people that just lost their smell or taste or just didn’t even know they had it I guess, but no, I’ve had all the symptoms, except for a fever,” she explained. “It’s beat me up. It’s brutal, but you know I am on the up and coming and I am feeling great these last two or three days and hopefully, I test negative soon.”

Nicole did not comment on whether or not Luke Combs tested positive for the virus.

Luke Combs and Nicole Hocking began dating in 2016 after meeting at the Key West Songwriter’s Festival. After the festival, the Hocking and Combs started spending more time together and eventually began dating. In 2018, Combs planned an elaborate proposal that ended up going south after a hectic day of moving. Weeks later, Combs and Hocking revealed their engagement with fans via Instagram.

The couple tied the knot in August 2020 after changing their wedding plans a few times due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. They exchanged vows in an intimate ceremony at their home in Florida surrounded by a small group of friends and family.
