Forty-four-year-old David Michael “Mike” or “Sugar Bear” Thompson of the ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’ reality show is Alana Thompson’s father and June Shannon’s ex-husband.
For those of you that don’t know the real names, Alana is actually Honey Boo Boo, and June Shannon is Mama June.
The show was unique in a way, starting after a beauty pageant where Alana performed. Very soon after, in August 2012, ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’ premiered and entertained the American reality show enthusiasts for two whole years!
The dad of the show is now officially off the market, in case you were hoping to be his next choice, you know. He said his I do‘s with Jennifer Lamb in a very intimate, backyard ceremony and PEOPLE exclusively reveal the photos.
Sugar Bear and Mama June split in 2014 (there were cheating allegations) and is now married to Lamb after over a year of dating. And it must be love and devotion, because no one cared about the pouring rain and tornado warnings: the wedding day was in full bloom under a tent in Mike’s backyard!
A cute idea was that Honey Boo Boo herself walked her daddy down the aisle, in a yellow dress and a trendy washed-out denim jacket. ‘Sugar Bear’ was also casual: jeans, a blue button-down shirt and a festive red tie.
The dad and daughter lit a candle at the altar, which is also what Jennifer and her son Joseph who walked the aisle in the same manner did.
So many friends and family came to celebrate with them, including Honey Boo Boo’s sister Lauryn “Pumpkin” Thompson, but there’s no photo of Mama June, so we don’t know if she was at the wedding as well.
DJ SHOWTIME took care of the music, and the newlyweds kept it simple, welcoming their guests to enjoy food from a deli tray and Coca-Cola.
Thompson looked overwhelmed with joy when he saw his bride. And in case you feel bad for missing something, the wedding will be on Mama June: From Not to Hot, on Feb. 24 at 10 p.m. ET on WEtv.
Congratulations to the lovebirds!
