Mama June Reveals How She Met Her New Boyfriend!
UPDATE (1/4/18 at 10:54 a.m. ET):
Mama June is opening up about her brand new boyfriend, who she met through mutual friends.
“His kids knew, but he didn’t,” she told Us Weekly about her new man not know who she is.
“I was like, ‘Did you live underneath a rock?’ He was like, ‘No.’ He just doesn’t watch reality TV.”
She continued, “I mean, you know, he does now watch the show, but he doesn’t care two cents
less about the cameras. … Outside of this [show], we are a very normal, everyday crazy bunch.”
And her daughter Honey Boo Boo approves of him too!
“I’m very proud that Mama got with him because she smiles if you say anything about him,” the reality star shared.
“I’m like, ‘Mama has been so happy!’”
In fact, the mother of four would even consider having a televised wedding!
"For the first time in my life, I would say the [m-word] and Mama June in the same sentence — but a piece of paper isn't going to change my love for him and it wouldn't, ever,” she told Life & Style.
“Nowadays, you don't have to get married to show that you love somebody. A piece of paper doesn't show that."

Mama June is keeping the weight off!
The former Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star debuted her 300-pound weight loss almost one year ago and has been able to stay healthy since.
Though it’s been a challenge, the reality star is revealing her secrets to staying thin.
However, some doctors probably won't necessarily agree with the 38-year-old’s choices.
“It’s all about portion control for me,” she told People.
“It’s not easy to eat like you’re ‘supposed to’ and hit the gym all the time, but I’m just trying to maintain it the best I can.”
In fact, one of the ways she keeps the weight off is by skipping breakfast all together.
"That sounds bad. But I'm more of a snacker."
The mother of four usually eats baked chicken, quinoa, corn, and beans.
"If I'm craving something sweet, Little Debbie jelly cakes are my favorite cheat snack," she revealed.
She also makes sure to check her weight regularly.
“I get on the scale religiously. I fluctuate, but the most I’ve gained back is five pounds,” she confessed.
“My legs are still a little bit fat and I have a jiggle-o and some cottage cheese, but I feel like I got what I wanted.”
She also credits her happiness to her new boyfriend, who will not be revealed until Season 2 of Mama June: From Not to Hot premieres.
"He's my rock and my best friend. We're together 24 hours a day. He restored our faith when we thought there were no good men left out there,” she confessed.
"For the first time in a long, long, long time, I'm happy."
