Mama June Shannon has finally debuted her mysterious new boyfriend!
Celebritiesâ Weight Loss and Transformations: Before and After Pictures
The recently slimmed-down reality star, 38, introduced Geno Doak on the season premiere of her new show Mama June: From Not to Hot! saying, âI have found love y’all. I have a great wonderful guy, Geno, and I feel like a kid again!â Later she added, â’Obviously I love this motherfâer.â
Shannon initially kept the 42-year-old, who does remodeling and construction work, hidden from her family â but he finally met Lauryn âPumpkinâ Shannon and Alana âHoney Boo Booâ Thompson before the lovebirds headed out on a date night that rivaled Demi Moore and Patrick Swayzeâs infamous sceneÂ in Ghost.
The pair sat closely together and molded wet clay while interlocking their fingers and flirting. âThis reminds me of Ghost,â Shannon said to a confused Doak, who hilariously responded, âGoats? What are we gonna do with goats?â
Unlikely Celebrity Couples

I’m trying to keep this one to myself to see how it’s going to work out. I’ve had some really terrible luck with guys and I’ve got burnt. So it’s really hard for me to fully trust him right now.’
As previously reported, Shannon, who is also the mom of Jessica âChubbsâ and Anna âChickadeeâ was previously in a relationship with Alanaâs dad, Mike âSugar Bearâ Thompson. The Here Comes Honey Boo Boo alum alleged that her ex was âvery emotionally and physically abusiveâ with her and her daughters, although he denied those claims.
But that all seems to be in the past as Shannon seems to have found true happiness with her new man. She exclusively told Us Weekly earlier this month that she met Doak through mutual friends â and despite Shannonâs family being a hit on TV, he had no idea who she was!
âHis kids knew, but he didnât,â Shannon told Us. âI was like, âDid you live underneath a rock?â He was like, âNo.â He just doesnât watch reality TV. I mean, you know, he does now watch the show, but he doesnât care two cents less about the cameras. â¦ Outside of this [show], we are a very normal, everyday crazy bunch.â

Shannonâs boyfriend has received the stamp of approval from her 12-year-old daughter, with the Toddlers & Tiaras alum sweetly telling Us, âIâm very proud that Mama got with him because she smiles if you say anything about him. Iâm like, âMama has been so happy!ââ
Things between the pair seem to be picking up at a rapid pace. When the mother-daughter duo visited the Us Weekly offices, Shannon was wearing a diamond ring on that finger, but told Us she isnât engaged â yet!
