My Big Fat Fabulous Life: Whitney Thore’s New Romance
In the summer of 2021, Whitney Thore embarked on a journey to Paris – the city of love, as they say. She posted one of her first photos with her new sweetheart on Instagram on July 21, 2021, officially confirming that the sparks are more than alive. As he explained in the caption, the mystery man wanted to protect his privacy. He agreed to take a photo in front of the Louvre Pyramid, one of the most famous sights, but he didn’t want his face to be shown. Whitney Thore used a ring to conceal her facial features.
In the first two photos, he wore black trousers, a light brown jacket and matching trousers and looked like a gentleman. Whitney’s initial post was soon followed by further snaps of herself and her new partner.
During her stay in France, Whitney Thore also took part in pool parties and found time to visit the Eiffel Tower, Disneyland Chessy’s in Paris and other attractions. She and the mystery man also spent time in the gardens of Luxembourg.
As she explained, many commenters saw her new partner’s desire to hide her face in a negative light, claiming that she might not want to be seen in public with him. Whitney Thore rejected the critics, noting that the man already spent a significant amount of time out with her without showing the slightest sign of shame.
