Honey Boo Boo's mother has married Sugar Bear!
Alana Thompson aka Honey Boo Boo is returning to TLC in June for a very special episode of her hit reality show. Thompson's mother June 'Mama June' Shannon has reportedly married long-time partner Mike 'Sugar Bear' Thompson and the ceremony - set to be aired in the July episode - sounds anything but ordinary.
The bride, 33, wore a camouflage gown with sparkly tennis shows, while the 41-year-old matched a matching set of trousers and orange vest. Young Honey Boo Boo donned a ruffled bright pink and peach dress for her mother's big day. The couple held their nuptials outside their famous Georgia home on May 5, 2013 with the reality TV cameras on-hand to catch the action.
Alana's big sisters Pumpkin, Chickadee and Chubbs were also in attendance for the ceremony and BBQ. "The day was very special mostly because my girls were able to take part in it," June told People magazine afterwards, "I felt like it was important for them to see this moment and celebrate my love for Sugar Bear." The bride said the special day was a family effort that stayed true to the family's roots. "Never settle for a man who doesn't treat you right," June said if her new husband, "If a guy doesn't love everything about you, move on! There are plenty of other fish in the sea."
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo returns to TLC on July 17 2013.
