Mama June secretly married boyfriend Justin Stroud at Georgia private ceremony in March: Report
Mama June, whose real name is June Shannon, married her long-term boyfriend, Justin Stroud, on March 23, according to reports. The couple sparked engagement speculations earlier when they were seen shopping for rings in an Alabama jewellery store together. They made their romance public after that. According to a clerk, the 'Mama June: Road To Redemption' actress married her youthful boyfriend after around five months of dating.
June talked about her newfound love with Stroud on the HollywoodLife Podcast before the big announcement. "We became friends originally, and he didn’t know who Mama June was when he met me. He didn’t know I had just gotten out of a domestic violence situation, he didn’t know what was going on in my life… and I didn’t honestly tell him what was going on," she stated. "I had been told I wasn’t his type, that he wasn’t single. But it turns out I was his type, and he was single!"

Amidst her drug addiction, an abusive relationship with her now-ex Geno Doak, and ultimate estrangement from her daughters Alana 'Honey Boo Boo' Thompson, Lauryn 'Pumpkin' Shannon, Anna Shannon and Jessica Shannon, the reality star has had a terrible few years.
"I feel like Justin is God’s way of flashing the last 10 years in front of me, with the overdoses, the relapses, and showing me how I can really be treated like gold if I stay sober," June said in the podcast. "He was always the one there. He was always the one that would text me at random times when he had no idea what was going on in my life, and that’s really just what made me fall for him."
June and her now-husband met on TikTok, and their relationship developed there. Despite the fact that suspicions regarding Stroud's criminal past have surfaced, June stated that "he has made leaps and bounds in his life" and that he is a member of the "recovery community."
"Everybody has a past," June explained in the podcast. "I'm so proud of the person that I’ve gotten to see, because has made changes in his life. He tells me all the time, it's not just for him, but it’s because of me — I made him want to do better."
