“I have found a man and he’s wonderful. I can’t say enough about him,” Whitney said.

She added, “It sounds cliché but people say when you really do find happiness, you’ll attract that person into your life. I’ve been happy for about a year and a half now, so I’ve been like, ‘I’m ready. I love my body, I’d like to use it!'”
