"It has been REAL hard to keep this a secret!"

One of the photos showed Chase holding Whitey's hand and another showed two of them kissing by the famous Louvre Museum.

The dynamic duo were first connected through college friend and business partner, Ryan Andreas.

Ryan works for NoBS by Snoga, Whitney's clothing line that encourages curvy women to stay active.

Whitney's life has drastically changed for the better – as she is no longer dating Nathan, the man she met online who ended up being her cousin.

A My Big Fat Fab Life episode showed Nathan coming forward with the news: “We are related. We’re, like, second cousins or something. I was telling my mom — she asked about the date, and I mentioned your name.

"… I forgot how the connection was, but she knew everybody’s name, and she was telling me how we’re tied together somehow in our family, and I was like, ‘What?'”

Despite Nathan's honestly, Whitney still felt as if he made up the story to get out of the relationship, US weekly reported.

The inner workings of Whitney's new love life – from being friends to falling in love with Chase – will revealed on the next season of her show.

In an exclusive interview with People, Whitney said: “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.”

A new season of My Big Fat Fabulous Life premieres on Tuesday, January 7 on TLC.
