Bachelorette winner Blake Moynes’ mother is asking for prayers after he was rushed to the ER with a ‘bad infection’ during a trip to Africa
BLAKE Moynes’ mother has reached out to fans for prayers and support after he was hospitalized during a trip to Africa.
Emily Moynes posted a video on Instagram expressing her fear for her reality star son.
In the video, reposted by Bachelor fan account Bachelor Nation Scoop, Emily said: “I just got a call from Blake, I haven’t heard from him, he’s been in Africa for about a month.
“He has no cell phone reception. But he’s down there fighting the poachers, saving the rhinos, saving the elephants, absolutely doing what he loves, he’s so passionate about stuff like that.
“But four days ago he called and said he had a really bad infection and was being treated. Well I just got a call today… like I’m starting to freak out!
“He just came out of surgery and maybe um… do you like to believe in the power of prayer? It doesn’t matter how old your kids are, the worry never ends.
“I could really use some prayers for Blake or I want him to come home. F*** Blake, just come home! I know you love what you do, but you really scare me! I’m ready to go on the next damn flight to Africa.”
Fans sent their congratulations in comments on the post, with one writing: “Oh my god I can literally feel her pain and emotions as a parent myself!!! I pray Blake is okay!”
Another wrote: “She should definitely get on a plane!!! I pray that he is well.”
“You’re so right that you never stop worrying. I pray Blake recovers quickly and goes home,” wrote another.

Fans know Blake from previous seasons of The Bachelorette, who was briefly engaged to Katie Thurston from August to October 2021.
On October 25, the couple announced that they had split.
Katie and Blake shared identical posts to reveal the news, which read: “It is with mutual love and respect that we have decided to go our separate ways.
“We are so grateful for the moments shared and the entire journey that has unfolded this year, but we have ultimately come to the conclusion that we are not compatible as life partners and moving forward independently is the most caring choice for both of us.” “
They added: “We ask for kindness and privacy as we both navigate this transition. We will both always want what is best for each other and ask for your support in our decision.”
Blake was also a contestant on The Bachelorette’s Clare Crawley and Tayshia Adams seasons.
It’s also no surprise to fans that Blake is abroad trying to save endangered species.
The outdoor aficionado works as a wildlife manager and does voluntary work for endangered species in his free time.
It’s unclear if Blake was traveling alone or with a group.
Following his public split from Katie, Blake said he knew what he wanted, describing his “sweetheart” as close-to-nature, goofy and funny, and having to be able to handle his “potty mouth”.
The 32-year-old comes from a large family and has two furry friends, a cat and a dog.
He has no problem talking about his feelings and “would like a partner who appreciates that he wears his heart on his sleeve”.
