Whilst promoting the upcoming second season of her transformation show ‘Mama June: From Not to Hot’, June Shannon has announced she has finally found love!
Speaking with People Magazine, the reality star revealed the new season will include a new man in her life, who she is currently keeping under wraps.
“He’s my rock and my best friend,” she told the magazine. “We’re together 24 hours a day.”
“I mean it’s kind of weird that we don’t really have to do anything. We can just chill at the house, or chill with the kids, or just go to the store.
“I’ve never been able to enjoy somebody as much as I have him.”
June went through a very public breakup with her on-again-off-again ex and the father to her daughter Alana, Matt “Sugar Bear” Thompson, on Marriage Boot Camp in 2016.
“It’s just been me and the girls for so long, and we’ve been though a lot. It’s hard to be able to trust somebody, and it was a lot of walls that he had to break down with me and the girls, honestly.”
But it sounds like her new man has done just that, and June assures he isn’t in it for the fame.
“He didn’t know who Mama June was when I met him. His kids did, but he had no idea who I was. And that’s what I like about it. We grew up in the same town but didn’t know one another.
“He doesn’t care about me being famous, or anything about it. He’s having fun with it.”
Then she added this little sentence to make your hearts swell: “He restored our faith when we thought there were no good men left out there.”
This new relationship has been the cherry on top of a great year for June. At the start of 2017 she lost a whopping 136kg through surgery and was able to keep it off all year long!
“For the first time in a long, long, long time, I’m happy,” she gushed.
Mama June, I’m so happy that you are so happy!
