Nothing like a tutu and a smile to relieve a broken heart. Whitney Bischoff posted a video of an adorable little girl on Friday, May 29, thanking followers for their support following her split from now-former fiancé Chris Soules.

“Now this little gal knows how to make me smile! From the bottom of my heart, thank you for your outpouring love, kindness and support! It means so much to me!” the fertility nurse, who got engaged to Soules during the season 19 Bachelor finale which aired just two months ago, wrote alongside the adorable black and white clip of the family friend or relative.

Bischoff and Soules told Us Weekly in a joint statement yesterday that they decided to end their engagement. (Bachelor producer Mike Fleiss broke news of the breakup via Twitter moments before the announcement.) 

"Whitney Bischoff and Chris Soules have mutually and amicably decided to end their engagement," the couple explained. "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."
