Fans of My Big, Fat Fabulous Life have watched and waited for Whitney Way Thore to find love through the years. Between dramatic cheating scandals (thanks, Avi) and heartbreaking splits, the TLC star has been through a lot when it comes to relationship. Viewers were convinced she had finally found "the one" when Chase came into the picture and he ended up popping the question.
In a shocking plot twist, however, Whitney revealed she and Chase had not only called off their engagement — but that he was expecting a child with another woman. Naturally, fans were dying to know: Who is Chase's baby mama?
Let's take a closer look at the situation.
Whitney announced that she and Chase Severino called off their engagement.
On May 22, Whitney took to Instagram to deliver two bits of unexpected news to her followers.
"Hey y’all. This is a really weird and uncomfortable thing to have to 'announce' on social media, but as I get more questions and hear more rumors, I figured it was time," she wrote. "Chase and I are no longer engaged."
"After experiencing a lot of ups and downs and still living apart, Chase reconnected with a woman with whom he has had a long history. Chase recently told me this information and the fact that it had resulted in a pregnancy. Chase will be a father in October," Whitney continued. "I’m not interested in anything hateful being directed toward anyone. I would ask for privacy for all involved as we move on and focus on the future."
Despite initially trying to keep his baby mama's identity private, fans found out.
Meanwhile, Chase posted about their split on his own Instagram — while also making it crystal clear that he will not be divulging details about the woman with whom he's expecting a baby.
"I don't even know where/how to start. I am very excited to announce I am expecting a child in the fall. Please see Whitney's post for details," he wrote.
"I have nothing but love and respect for Whitney and our time together," Chase continued. "Thank you for always supporting us. As we now go our separate ways, I ask for privacy for Whitney, myself, and the mother of my child who wishes to remain anonymous."
Chase revealed on Sept. 9, 2020, that his baby girl was born earlier than expected. His daughter, Aurora Joyce Severino, surprised the couple, but she appeared to be healthy. Fans were able to uncover baby registries belonging to Chase and his presumed baby mama, Sara Jackson, stating that Aurora was originally expected to be born on Sept. 25.
A breakup, a baby mama, and an early birth — these are some pretty heavy revelations for fans of My Big, Fat Fabulous Life. However, we have a feeling viewers might learn more about the situation on future episodes of the TLC series, airing on Tuesdays on TLC at 9 p.m. ET.
