Mama June Shannon's New Boyfriend Revealed -- And They're 'Very Serious' (Exclusive)

Mama June Shannon can't help but gush about her new man!

The world met Geno on Friday's season two premiere of Mama June: From Not to Hot, but even before he made his TV debut, the reality star couldn't stop gushing about him to ET!

"[We're] very [serious]," she told ET's Lauren Zima during a live interview on YouTube on Friday. "We're very committed to one another and we both love each other. We're very happy in our relationship. We're both best friends. We're with each other 24/7. And it's just happy."

"Like, it's kind of strange, like, today, being away all day, and we've been texting, but it's kind of strange when we're apart from each other, because we both text each other at the same time, the same message, and it's kind of... we just always have had that connection and it's nice," she continued of her new man, whom she met through mutual friends. "People say that we're both crazy together, so it just clicks." 

On Friday's episode, viewers met Geno as he took Mama June on a Ghost-style pottery date, before getting grilled by her daughters back home. 

While Mama June clearly couldn't be more smitten, she was quick to shoot down the possibility that she and Geno are heading down the aisle. "Don't get it twisted," she insisted. "I've never been married. For me, that piece of paper doesn't change your love or commitment for somebody and people get that twisted sometimes. I love him just as much as I loved him months ago." 

"It's been the honeymoon stage... it feels like that every day," she added. "I wake up to him, and it's like, I smile. We both smile. It just works." 

This isn't the first time Mama June has raved about her new man. See what she told ET about what her kids -- including Honey Boo Boo -- think of him in the video below. 

Mama June: From Not to Hot airs Fridays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on WE tv.
