On her Instagram, Whitney has been teasing what’s in store for her show’s 10th season. On May 31, she shared photos and videos from her trip to St. Lucia. She’s also posted about Jessica’s wedding. And on June 25, she shared a photo of herself snuggling with an infant.

“Whose sweet baby is this?!” she asked. Many of her followers guessed that it was Ashley’s child. 

Of course, many of Whitney’s fans are also wondering if she’s still in a relationship with her Frenchman. While she hasn’t confirmed her relationship status recently, in a post from February 2022, she did say she was “happily in a relationship” and had recently visited France.
