The plot thickens! Just one day after Whitney Thore *basically* confirmed she has a boyfriend, the My Big Fat Fabulous life star, 35, shared yet another romantic photo on Instagram. “My favorite way to wake up,” Whitney captioned the sweetest post of herself in bed with her cat on Tuesday, July 9. 

Now, as much as we would enjoy fawning over Whitney’s feline furbaby, Henchi, we have bigger fish to fry — and as it happens, the people of the internet agree. Within minutes of posting the picture, tons of fans began to inquire about the photographer. After all, taking a picture of someone snuggled up in the sheets is a very intimate thing to do.

My favorite way to wake up! 😻

A post shared by Whitney Way Thore⚡️ (@whitneywaythore) on

“Who took the picture?!” one fan commented, along with several winking emojis. “I wonder who took the picture!” echoed another. “Did a stranger take this pic?” asked a third follower. Ummm, we seriously hope not. Considering just one post earlier, Whitney captioned “Documentaries all night long,” with a mystery man who goes by @severinbro7 on Instagram, we have to suspect he’s the elusive photographer. 

Plus, as mentioned, Whitney pretty much made it clear that she’s boo’d up during an interaction with a fan. “Maybe she can’t confirm due to contract with show? Calm your tatas! I think it’s obvious, the answer, but I can wait for the new season! BUT I WANT THE NEW SEASON RIGHT MEEEOOWW!!!” one user wrote, to which Whitney responded with three bell emojis (a.k.a ding, ding, ding.)

Well, there you have it, ladies and gentlemen, Whitney definitely has some romance going on in her life … she just can’t reveal too much yet! In the meantime, we’ll keep looking for clues and gushing over this potential new relationship.

Get it, girl. *Wink, wink.*
