Mama June was with Sugar Bear for over a decade before the two split due to Sugar Bear’s anger issues and unfaithful actions. Although the two did have a special episode of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” where they had a ‘commitment ceremony,’ the former couple never went as far as getting legally wed — for good reason. Since then, both of the reality stars have moved on and June’s new partner has got her thinking about marriage in a whole new light.
In the newest season of “From Not to Hot,” we get to see more of her relationship with Geno Doak in addition to her daughter’s relationship. Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon recently gave birth to her first child with her now-husband, Josh Efird.
Before the young couple wed, June Shannon opened up to Pumpkin on her stance about marriage.
“I’m really glad I didn’t marry Sugar Bear because that would have been a horrible mistake. But sometimes, some people come into your life and change your opinions about things that you wouldn’t do. You know I told you I would never want to get married, and since Geno’s came into our life and been here for y’all, and been here for me, it’s made me realize that he’s probably the one I want to spend the rest of my life with,” the pageant mom said.
June added: “It’s not the fact that I don’t believe in marriage, it’s just you gotta make sure it’s the right one. You gotta have that feeling.”
The WE star has been through a lot these past few years. Between going through multiple grueling weight loss surgeries, to nearly going blind and putting back on dozens of pounds due to the recovery process — Geno has been there during it all.
By the looks of the trailer for the new season of the series, June may have proposed to Geno before he got the chance to pop the question!
