COMEDIAN Whitney Cummings revealed she has a new, younger boyfriend that she’s “ready to propose to” one year after ending her engagement, The Sun can reveal.
The actress & writer kicked off her Touch Me Tour in Anaheim, CA on Friday to a hilarious set of jokes that also dived deep into her personal life – including a new romance.
The 39-year-old made a strong entrance to Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s hit, WAP, as she walked out on stage to a roar of applause at the Grove Of Anaheim theater while rocking her recently-dyed orange hair.
She went on to do a set – which garnered a positive reaction from the crowd – about the differences between strict parenting these days and how she grew up as a kid.
One comparison she made was: “Kids these days have it so easy. I mean, playgrounds now even have shade! Can you believe it?
“When I was a kid, we had a sheet of metal that baked in the hot sun all day and we would slide down it getting our a**es burnt but we didn’t complain!”
The 2 Broke Girls screenwriter then talked about her romantic life, revealing she has a new boyfriend of three months, Alex, who is eight years her junior.
Following ending her engagement to ex Miles Skinner in 2020, Whitney joked: “I’m not great at picking guys or relationships.
“But here’s something I want to announce to you guys I’ve never said before, like no one knows.
“I’m dating someone and I want to be the one to propose to him. Look, I’m 39. I don’t have time for him to plan a f**king scavenger hunt proposal.
“So Alex, will you make me the happiest girl in the world and let me buy my own engagement ring since you can’t afford the one that I want?”
She continued: “Yeah he’s great, it’s going great. I can see myself having kids with him but I don’t want to do it until we do a 23 + Me test. Need to see those results first.”
As Whitney noted in her set, she typically went for older guys in the past and had her eyes set on an elderly man in the crowd.
Following the show, Whitney interacted with the crowd and even hilariously straddled an older gentleman in the audience.
The excited man flashed a massive grin as he cupped Whitney’s breast after she lifted her shirt up – even giving a thumbs up for his friend who snapped the whole thing on his phone.
‘GET ME OFF THIS F**KING STAGE’
As Friday was the first stop on the comedian’s expansive tour, she brought out special guest, Katie Thurston, 30, to do her first standup gig ever.
However, the former Bachelorette appeared to struggle, as she repeatedly begged “get me off this f**king stage” during her 10-minute set.
In September 2018, Whitney revealed on Instagram she was engaged to the former VICE Media executive after he surprised her with a proposal on her 36th birthday.
However, on a February 2020 episode of her podcast, Good For You, she let fans know that that the engagement had been called off.
Explaining the situation, she said: “I am not wearing an engagement ring. I am no longer engaged. Nothing nasty, no drama.
“It just wasn’t – I feel like nobody will believe me – I truly just was not ready to plan a wedding, the whole thing really overwhelmed me.
“My mom is in bad shape health wise. The idea of planning was just really overwhelming and kind of sad to me.
“I feel like planning a wedding should be fun and not a complete bummer.”
Following the California show, Whitney continued her Touch Me Tour in Denver, Colorado and will pick up close to 50 shows across the country from now until May 21.
