Mama June Shannon introduced new boyfriend Geno Doak to her daughters on Friday night's episode of From Not to Hot—and declared to the cameras, "Obviously I love this mother***er."
RadarOnline.com exclusively told you the news first that Mama June, 38, had rekindled her relationship with home remodeler Geno, 42. They previously had dated in late 2015 when Shannon was 300 pounds heavier.
But now, she has someone to share all her struggles! According to a RadarOnline.com source, June first met Geno when Shannon hired her hunky handyman to fix up her Hampton, Georgia home.
After a break, Shannon and Doak rekindled the romance last year. Like Shannon, Doak is also a single parent. The dad has an adult son and two daughters. On Friday night's episode of FNTH, Shannon finally went public with her man. She had previously kept him from daughters Lauryn 'Pumpkin' Shannon, 18, and 12-year-old Alana 'Honey Boo Boo' Thompson, viewers learned.
On the season premiere of her WETV show, she told the girls, "I have found love y'all. I have a great wonderful guy, Geno, and I feel like a kid again."
June had to 'fess up after her daughters followed their mom on camera and caught her kissing Doak during a bingo night.
They grilled their mom with questions when she got home over three hours later, finally letting on that they knew when she claimed it was "just me and some friends having some fun." Little Alana asked, "Damn! You kiss all your friends like that?" and Shannon had to admit she was "busted."
The former Here Comes Honey Boo Boo matriarch and Doak also reinacted the pottery love scene from the Demi Moore/Patrick Swayze movie, Ghost. Mama June sat with her legs around the pottery machine, with Geno squeezing her from behind, often interlacing his fingers with hers.
They were told to keep the clay "wet" and "moist," and Mama June created a phallic symbol! Doak was clueless about the movie Ghost, saying, "Goats? What are we gonna do with goats?" But all TV kidding aside, Shannon told the cameras, "Geno knew me when I was heavy and I really think he's here for the right reasons. I think he likes me for me, not for the fame-ability or maybe being skinny." She enjoyed keeping their love secret (even though RadarOnline.com readers already knew the truth!), revealing on the reality show, "I mean sneaking around is kinda hot - it's kinda foreplay."
However, Shannon is understandably wary about love after splitting from Alana's dad, Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson, saying, "I've had some really terrible luck with guys and I've got burnt. So it's really hard for me to fully trust Geno right now."
Still, Geno raved to her on FNTH, "I really, really enjoy hanging out with you. I'm being totally serious."
He pressed for a meeting with her kids and leaped into a makeshift pool with them, showing he was a perfect addition to Shannon's family!
