"Jennifer is super sweet and treats Mike so well," a separate source close to Thompson, 44, told "They are very happy together."

And she's not shy about the relationship, even boasting about her man on her private Facebook page.

"He is a great dad to his daughter. He is also a great man to my son and a fantastic role model for him also," she gushed to pals. "He works hard to provide for us and will do anything in his reach to help out anyone else, regardless of the time of day."

Honey Boo Boo

Fortunately for fans of the canceled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, Thompson and Lamb are planning to bring their romance to reality TV, insiders said. The couple has even signed a contract with a network.

As previously reported, the parents to Honey Boo Boo, now 11, split in 2014 amid cheating rumors on both sides.

Of course, Shannon, 37, faced an even bigger scandal when she was caught cozying up to an ex-boyfriend who was imprisoned for molesting her oldest daughter, Anna, when the now mother of two was just 8 years old. (Shannon denied ever rekindling the romance following his 2014 release from prison.)

She eventually moved on to her home remodeler, Geno Doak, though sources told the pair has since split.
