“My Big Fat Fabulous Life” star Whitney Way Thore and her boyfriend Chase Severino are leveling up on their relationship!
In October, Chase popped the question to Whitney in Paris, and the couple managed to keep their engagement under wraps for two months.
In a statement obtained by “Extra,” the pair said, “Chase and I are so excited to officially announce our engagement and even more excited for 'My Big Fat Fabulous Life' viewers to share this happiness with us. We can’t wait to see the new season and watch as we hang out for the first time, go on our first date, fall in love, and make life-changing plans in Paris. It has truly been a dream.”
While Whitney has introduced Chase to her followers on Instagram, he won’t make his debut on “My Big Fat Fabulous Life” until the sixth season.
Whitney met Chase through her business partner and friend Ryan Andreas. In a preview of the new season, she said, “Chase is one of Ryan’s best friends from college, and I’m so into him.”
While Thore introduces Severino as her boyfriend to her friends, the couple don’t see eye-to-eye on her close relationship with old flame Buddy Bell, who she smooched in Season 5. Severino told Thore, “I trust you 100 percent, it’s just that Buddy’s around all the time.”
The teaser clip ends with Chase’s proposal. Watch!
Whitney told People magazine, “We can’t wait to see the new season and watch as we hang out for the first time, go on our first date, fall in love, and make life-changing plans in Paris. It has truly been a dream.”
