Chris Harrison is giving Bachelor fans an update on Peter Weber's injury.

In an exclusive statement to ET, the host of the beloved reality show reveals that Weber "suffered a freak accident."

"He got a cut on his head," Harrison said in the statement. "He did get stitches but he's 100% OK and production is already back underway. He's still the dashing, handsome pilot we've all dreamed of." 

ET confirmed earlier on Tuesday that Weber -- the new star of the Bachelor franchise -- had sustained an injury to his face while getting into a golf cart in Costa Rica.

Weber was confirmed as the season 24 Bachelor in September, after placing third in Hannah Brown’s recent season of The Bachelorette.

"This is life-changing. I have truly, my entire life, looked forward to finding my girl, and that person that I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with," he said at the time of the announcement. “I've had the most amazing example of my parents, growing up, and I feel like the luckiest kid ever. I saw so much love in my household, and just 30 some odd years later now, they're that much in love with each other.”
