"From [his family's] perspective, they always recognized they were running the risk of getting it, and they were OK with it".
Mr Kunkel, from Kentucky, made headlines in the USA last month after he took legal action against his school, Our Lady of the Sacred Heart/Assumption Academy, for barring unimmunised students following an outbreak of chickenpox which affected at least 30 pupils.
After an outbreak, students who weren't vaccinated were ordered to stay away from Our Lady of the Assumption Church school, in the U.S. state of Kentucky, and activities.
An unvaccinated teen who was banned from school during a chickenpox outbreak now has chickenpox himself, his lawyer says. Kunkel, who is unvaccinated, was barred from playing basketball as part of the ban. The teen's father said that he opposed vaccinations because some are derived from cells from aborted fetuses, according to the BBC.
On Tuesday, Wiest confirmed Kunkel now has chickenpox, WKYT's sister station, WXIX in Cincinnati, reports.
When the ban came into force, 32 cases of chickenpox had spread within the Catholic school, escalating the need to control the outbreak.

Chickenpox is a highly contagious disease that causes a blister-like rash, itching, fever and tiredness.
"Their ban didn't stop these kids from going to church together", Mr Wiest said yesterday.
"The Court's ruling, which follows on the heels of the Northern Kentucky Health Department receiving national recognition through re-accreditation by the Public Health Accreditation Board, underscores the critical need for Public Health Departments to preserve the safety of the entire community, and in particular the safety of those members of our community who are most susceptible to the dire consequences when a serious, infectious disease such as varicella, is left unabated and uncontrolled".
The department said people who contract chickenpox can expose others to the virus before the disease becomes apparent.
They "are created to prevent unvaccinated people who have been exposed to the virus from infecting members of the general public while they are infectious", the statement said. The virus spreads by contact with infected individuals. "They regret what the health department did".
