Mama June Shannon is looking to take the plunge with her boyfriend Geno Doak. Shannon is very much in love with Doak and it seems is now ready for him to take the next step in the relationship and upgrade from being a boyfriend to a husband.
Shannon took to Instagram to share a throwback picture of the pair and got candid about her desire to be married. "I know people have asked but me and Geno r not married are real names are June Shannon and Geno Doak so you can look anywhere as that is public record n yes on the show it was real when I gave him the ultimatum our show is not scripted we bring the real back into reality," she wrote.
She also admitted that Doak "is the first person I’ve ever thought about wanting to spend the rest of my life with because he makes not just me but the girls happy too and that’s what matters the most so hopefully one day he will give me the commitment I am looking for and wanting for quite some time or at least put some kind of ring on it".
The 39-year-old is evidently ready for the ring on her finger but realizes that her boyfriend Geno might be slightly scared of proposing.
"A girl can always dream I know that he is scared but at this point, I am honestly looking to take that next step in our relationship," Shannon revealed. "It really hurt me to actually say either step up or I’m going to have to walk away but I know my girls want the best for me and I know that he is little scared as he was married for many years and I am only his second serious relationship his whole entire life".
It seems like Doak is nervous about the proposal but Shannon is optimistic that it will happen. "Yes I know it is a shocker with him being almost 43 years old but I know he is scared to take the next step in our relationship but hopefully he will come around because I honestly do love him with all of my heart and totally in love with him and I’m happy with him as we are together 24/7" Shannon added.
Fans and followers of the show first came to know about Doak when Shannon introduced Doak to her two youngest children Alana 'Honey Boo Boo' Thompson and Lauryn 'Pumpkin' Shannon.
Shannon and Doak dated for a couple of months before she asked him to move in with her and her daughters. He became part of the family in a short amount of time and it was only last month that Shannon opened up about wanting to get married.
"I never thought about marriage until I met Geno. And you know I proposed to him," Mama June told her sister Doe Doe. Shannon told People, "He’s my rock and my best friend. We’re together 24 hours a day". She also spoke about how her daughters were very skeptical of her relationship with Geno. "It’s just been me and the girls for so long, and we’ve been through a lot. It’s hard to be able to trust somebody, and it was a lot of walls that he had to break down with me and the girls, honestly".
"He restored our faith when we thought there were no good men left out there," she continued.
