Geno Doak is Mama June’s current bae. She introduced fans to the 42-year-old owner of a construction company in the first season of Mama June: From Not to Hot, when she asked him to move in with her very quickly. She said, “Well baby, there’s always room, you understand I have tons of room at my house.” Unfortunately, he didn’t take the bait and said, “Yeah, and hear a bunch of screaming every day — negative. You’re way too quick with that s–t.”
It looks like she’ll continue rushing things in the new season of the show, because the trailer shows her potentially getting on one knee to propose. Unfortunately, he seems totally against it, and even runs away! “She knows I don’t want to get married,” he said. While Mama June says she can see him being a great father figure for her girls, others question his motives and her contstant desire to push boundaries. June says she trusts him “100 percent.” “I feel really good that I have a man that loves me and cares about me and I have not had the best of luck with guys,” she explained.
Thankfully, Alana approves. “She’s always grinning. Always grinning,” Alana told us in an exclusive interview. “She always says it’s the little things that matter and he does the little things.” However, Lauryn is a little less convinced. “If Geno breaks my momma’s heart, I’m gonna break his ding-a-ling,” she said. We really want this to work out for June!
Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson and Mama June share one daughter, 12-year-old Alana. He was a recurring character on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo as the pair were in a relationship and lived together for years before they had a commitment ceremony on May 5, 2013. Unfortunately, they officially called it quits in 2014.
Now, the former couple is constantly at each others’ throats. Sugar Bear has a new wife, and June hates her. Plus, they’re always at odds over spending time with Alana, which looks like it’ll only get worse in the new season.
Mark McDaniel and Mama June had a relationship years prior to her ride to stardom on TLC. However, it was revealed in 2014 that he molested Mama June’s oldest daughter Anna when she was just eight years old. After serving 10 years in prison for aggravated child molestation, he was allegedly seen hanging out with Mama June which is what led the network to end the hit series, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo after four seasons.
Aside from Geno, Sugar Bear, and Mark, the reality star has had two other notable men in her life — Micheal Anthony Ford who is the father of Jessica and Lauryn and David Dunn who is the father of Anna.
Anna, 23, married Michael Cardwell in 2014 and the duo share one daughter, Kylee Madison Cardwell. Unfortunately, they are no longer together, and Michael has a new girlfriend.
Anna is also a mom to Kaitlyn Elizabeth Clark, 5, from a previous relationship with Caleb Clark. He was Anna’s high school boyfriend and the pair dated for two years before she found out she was pregnant. Even though he’s unfortunately not in the picture anymore, Michael has taken on the daddy role in Kaitlyn’s life.
Lauryn, 18, got engaged to her longtime boyfriend, Joshua Efird, in January 2016 after just nine months of dating. While the pair is waiting a few years to tie the knot, they just welcomed their first child together, Ella Grace Efird, on Dec. 8, 2017.
21-year-old Jessica doesn’t have a boyfriend at the moment. However, she’s rumored to have dated a boy named Phillip in the past.
