June Shannon: Dating Geno Doak!!

by at .  Updated at .

You know how the world recently learned that June Shannon has a secret boyfriend who taught her how to love again?

Mama June gushes about him and the two kiss on the From Not to Hot season 2 trailer, but his actual identity has been kept pretty hush-hush.

But now we know his name ... and a lot more about him.

Mama June Shannon Winks

While it's great that June's new size 4 figure is helping her find happiness, for a lot of viewers, the news that June Shannon was dating again brought up ... mixed feelings.

After all, June was infamously seen cozying up to Mark McDaniel ... a convicted sex offender whom June's own daughter, Anna Cardwell, accuses of molesting her.

The only good reason anyone can think of for a mother to spend time with the man who molested her then-8-year-old daughter while her then-three-year-old daughter (Lauryn) was also on the bed is if she had been planning to murder him.

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was canceled over that scandal. It was years before the final episodes were aired and before June Shannon made her (real) reality television comeback with From Not to Hot.

Thankfully, Mama June does not appear to be repeating such an unimaginable mistake.

Geno Doak

RadarOnline reports that Mama June's new boyfriend is Geno Doak, a 42-year-old carpenter. 

June had previously stated, without naming her beau, that the two had met through mutual friends.

Apparently, that also involved her hiring him to fix up her home in Hampton, Georgia.

Geno Doak is also a single parent, as he has one son and two daughters.

What's more -- these two have dated before. Way back in 2015, in fact.

As we previously reported, Mama June hasn't been able to resist gushing about her then-mystery boyfriend.

"He is very, very awesome," she told E!

Well, she definitely sounds enthusiastic about the guy.

"He actually restored my faith and the girls' faith in men."

That's pretty profound. Before you question why a girl as young as Alana might need her faith in men restored, remember that she has eyes and has also probably noticed her mother's relationships over the years.

June also talks about what makes her love Geno.

"It's the little things...he is above and beyond anything that I could ever expect."

She talks about how this happy romance got started.

"We honestly were just wanting to be friends and things just worked out."

A lot of relationships begin that way.

RadarOnline confirms that Geno Doak will appear on the second season of From Not to Hot, by the way.

We'd figured as much.

But we already knew that June's ex, Sugar Bear, and his new wife would be appearing on the new season, too.

And apparently June does not give one flying flip what he thinks about her new relationship.

"As long as I'm happy and the girls are happy at the end of the day, that's all that matters to me."

It sounds like she has her priorities in order.

Finally.
