‘My Big Fat Fabulous Life’: Whitney Thore Pregnancy Plans – Chase Ready to Be a Daddy?

My Big Fat Fabulous Life star Whitney Thore really needs to start making plans for a pregnancy sooner rather than later. It’s no secret the reality star wants to be a mom. Now, she’s engaged to Chase Severino. So, her dream’s within reach. However, on the latest episode of her hit TLC show, she had a candid discussion with her mother Barbara Thore about her future and motherhood.

Whitney dropped the bomb on her mother Babs that she didn’t know if Chase wanted kids soon — or even at all. Of course, at the time it filmed, Whitney Thore and hunky Chase Severino just started dating. Babs clapped back: “maybe you should find out if he wants a wife first”. Since they’re now engaged, we know the answer to that.

But, the jury’s still out on whether Chase wants kids. Here’s what we know about Whitney Thore and fiance Chase Severino’s path to parenthood.

My Big Fat Fabulous Life: Getting Pregnant May Not Be Easy For Whitney Thore

My Big Fat Fabulous Life celeb Whitney Thore won’t have an easy time becoming a mother. The former Big Girs Dance Class instructor has several hurdles to get over. First, there’s her age. She is 35 years old. So, that makes pregnancy a higher risk. Then, there’s her weight. Although she’s strong and fit, weight can be an obstacle to fertility.

Plus, the biggest issue for the My Big Fat Fabulous Life alum is her PCOS (Polycystic ovary syndrome). This hormonal disorder affects women of childbearing age. Although the disorder manifests in many ways, the worst symptom is infertility. So, with all these factors stacked against Whitney Thore, she certainly will not have an easy path to parenthood.

MBFFL: Does Chase Severino Want Kids?

On the most recent episode of My Big Fat Fabulous Life, we saw Whitney and Babs gushing over the nail salon owner’s newborn daughter. In her confessional, Whitney said: “My ovaries are positively bursting”. No doubt, Whitney Thore wants a child. And, from the looks of things, Babs is ready to be a doting grandma. However, one variable’s uncertain – does Chase Severino want children – and if so, when?

My Big Fat Fabulous Life fans recall Chase Severino is seven years younger than Whitney Thore. He’s 28 and might not be in the same place as his bride to be who’s 35. Whitney says she thinks Chase wants kids but she’s not sure. And even if Chase wants children, he may not be ready to start a marriage – and babymaking both right now.

Most newlyweds want a year or two to enjoy being married, travel, and get set up financially. These are all luxuries that time affords couples. Except Chase Severino and Whitney Thore may not have the luxury of time given her fertility challenges. So, what will happen with the My Big Fat Fabulous Life dancer and future husband Chase Severino?

My Big Fat Fabulous Life: Whitney Has Baby Names Picked Out

Whitney Thore certainly has babies on her mind. And, if she gets her way, they’ll be a part of her future. The reality star even has a few names picked out already. In fact, she’s shared one of her favorites – Glenna for a little girl. Of course, that would honor her father Glenn. Whitney’s set on the name. Especially, since Babs wanted to give Whitney Thore that name – but Glenn nixed the idea.

We all know My Big Fat Fabulous Life‘s Whitney Thore is one determined woman. She usually gets what she wants. So, maybe we’ll see her and Chase Severino announce pregnancy news sooner rather than later. And, if she can talk Chase Severino into the name choice – maybe it’ll be daughter Glenna Severino.
