Honey Boo Boo’s Parents Met in a Chatroom on the Internet
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo isn’t exactly a love story, but it does have its share of romance.
Honey Boo Boo’s mom and dad, Mama June and Sugar Bear, have been together for almost a decade. He recently gushed over her blonde bombshell makeover, and she revealed what she would want him to get her for Valentine’s Day.
TLC recently showed a highlight special of Season 1, with new footage revealing how Mama June and Sugar Bear first met. "Me and Sugar Bear met in a chatroom off the Internet," June said (via Huffington Post). "It was just supposed to be a random hook up thing, and here we go nine years later and a kid." (See? Honey Boo Boo was born to be famous across the Interwebz.)
Sugar Bear sounds like the more sentimental of the two, saying, "When I met June it was love at first sight." (Aww!) But, as June remembers it, "Was it love at first sight? No. Was it bed at first sight? Maybe."
