Whitney Way Thore, the star of TLC’s “My Big Fat Fabulous Life,” will return to television with Season 4 of the hit TLC reality show. This time around, the star might be pregnant with her first child.

A quick teaser for the series shows Whitney taking a pregnancy test. Of course, the results are not shown. But Whitney doesn’t look happy about possibly being a mother.

If she were pregnant, it’s possible that boyfriend Lennie Alehat is the father. The two dated on Season 3 of “My Big Fat Fabulous Life.”

Whitney hasn’t posted pictures of him on social media, though. The last time she mentioned him was nearly 6 months ago. She lamented that some people said Alehat must be a paid actor.

She posted a video to her official Instagram page to express herself. “Some of you guys brought it to my attention that you think Lennie’s a paid actor and that there’s no way he really loves me,” she says to the camera. Then Whitney looks at Lennie and asks, “Do you have anything to say about that?” He responds, “No, I love her.”

“Do you really love me?” Whitney asks one more time. “Yes,” he says, shaking his head.

“It just really hurts my feelings to hear stuff like this, mostly because I’m the one who got a theater degree. I’m the actress!”

She captioned the video from several months ago with a similar response: “When people tell me that @magicscienceland is a paid actor, it upsets me on multiple levels. I hear so often, ‘There's no way he really loves her!’ That sucks. But MOSTLY it hurts because...I'M THE ONE WHO WENT TO UNDERGRAD FOR THEATRE. GLENN THORE PAID GOOD MONEY FOR THAT DEGREE! (Thank you, Daddy. Sorry I wasted it!)”

Season 4 of “My Big Fat Fabulous Life” returns to TLC in early 2017.
