Lennie Reveals Big Baby News to Whitney in Exclusive Sneak Peek

Whitney Way Thore is in for a big surprise when it comes to the latest developments in ex Lennie Alehat’s life. In a sneak peek of Tuesday’s Season 12 premiere of My Big Fat Fabulous Life, Lennie breaks some significant news to Whitney—he’s now a father!

As Whitney walks into the room to greet Lennie, she’s stunned by the firing of a confetti cannon. Turning to look at Lennie, Whitney is taken aback when he calmly tells her, "I had a baby." In disbelief, Whitney responds, "Stop," as Lennie nods and confirms, "Yeah, I did."

Amidst Whitney’s shocked reaction, Lennie invites her to sit down while she stutters, "Oh, my God. You almost just- I’m like, I’m passing out. Oh, my God. I have chills. Oh, my God." As the two hug, Lennie notes proudly, "I’m a dad now."

"A couple months ago, right before I left for France, Lennie dropped the biggest bomb on me," Whitney explains to the camera. "Not only was his girlfriend Allison pregnant, but she’d been pregnant for seven months. So to say the least, I was extremely surprised, shocked, [and] confused. Also thrilled."

Lennie reveals to Whitney that he’s the proud father of a baby girl, showing her photos of his newborn daughter, Genevieve. Speaking to the cameras later in a confessional, Lennie shares, "So the past year, I started dating a really wonderful woman and very quickly I got her pregnant. At one point, I didn’t think I would ever have children just due to my age and all the chaos that has happened in my life. But now Allison and I have a little girl named Genevieve, and she’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen in my life."

Whitney, glowing with pride, looks through the photos of Lennie’s daughter and offers her congratulations to Allison. "Am I ever gonna meet her or…?" she asks, to which Lennie simply responds, "Yeah."

Lennie announced the birth of Genevieve in December 2023, sharing photos from his first day as a dad with the caption, "Meet the love of my life, Genevieve, my daughter." In May, Lennie revealed that his daughter is called Evie by her family while paying tribute to Allison on Mother’s Day. "It’s Mother’s Day and I gotta shout out my lovely girlfriend who created our perfect daughter, Evie," he wrote at the time.

My Big Fat Fabulous Life premieres on Tuesday, July 9, at 9 pm ET/PT on TLC.
