Nathan Apodaca, the TikTok star best known for his viral skateboarding, cranberry juice-drinking video set to Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams," has tested positive for COVID-19, his representatives confirmed to The Los Angeles Times.

TMZ reported that Apodaca's fiancée, Estela Chavez, also tested positive for the virus, saying that the pair have been traveling since Apodaca's rise to fame in October.

In a reply to a comment on a video posted on Wednesday, he said that he hopes that he's "past the worst of it." He posted what appears to be a screenshot of his positive COVID-19 test result on Instagram on Wednesday.

Apodaca originally rose to mainstream internet fame in October after a September 25 TikTok video showing him lip-syncing to Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams" while longboarding and drinking cranberry juice went viral. He told Insider in an October interview that he filmed the video while longboarding to work after his car broke down, and that its viral success was helping him get enough money to put in a down payment for a house.

People reported in November that Apodaca had bought a 5-bedroom, 3-bathroom house in Idaho Falls, ID. He now has approximately 6.2 million followers on TikTok and 3.3 million on Instagram.
