Mama June Shannon was caught packing on the PDA with her new husband Justin Stroud while enjoying a honeymoon vacation in the Florida Panhandle last week.

The reality TV star, 42, could hardly keep her hands off the 34-year-old hunk as they cooled off in a resort pool before hitting the beach.

The couple’s jovial getaway occurred just days before The Sun would reveal that June’s daughter  Lauryn Efird, 22, had been awarded permanent custody of June’s youngest daughter Alana ‘Honey Boo Boo’ Thompson, 16.

June and Justin secretly tied the knot at a Georgia courthouse on March 23, according to the The Sun.

She confirmed the news by showing off her impressive diamond ring in a selfie with Justin, which was uploaded to Instagram on Monday.

And just days before the news of their ‘I Dos’ would be revealed to the world, the newlyweds decided to kick off their honeymoon festivities in the Sunshine State.

June and Justin, who only began their romance just a few months prior to their secret courthouse wedding, slipped into their swimwear of choice and ventured to the pool for some relaxation under the sun.

Her blonde hair was swept up into a messy bun and she appeared to be wearing little to no makeup, which allowed her natural beauty to shine.

She was captured hanging onto the edge of a blue inner tube while Justin remained seated inside it.

June’s much younger beau was shirtless but kept his lower half under wraps with a pair of colorful swim trunks.

During their time in the water, the couple horsed around near a rock waterfall, with June eagerly going in for a passionate kiss at one point.

Though they looked to be having a blast in the pool, June and Justin decided to venture to the beach.

They set up two fold up chairs under a large, green umbrella, along with a cooler and several beach bags beside them.

Instead of sitting in a chair of her own, June decided to sit in Justin’s lap as they looked out at the incredible ocean view.

Although June and her now-husband Justin have only been dating for a few months, they sparked engagement rumors in March this year when they spotted shopping for rings together at a jewelry store in Alabama.

June recently confessed to The Sun, that her and her new partner have ‘known each other going on a year now’ and that their romance stemmed from friendship.

‘We were best friends and we decided to take it to the next step in the last eight months,’ she told the outlet.

It has been reported that Justin was issued with an arrest warrant last October after he violated his probation on drug and burglary charges – and was eventually arrested in Florida.

The relationship comes after June ended her troubled romance with ex Geno Doak.

Prior to Geno, June was engaged to partner Sugar Bear – real name Mike Thompson – for 16 months before they eventually separated in September 2014.

The pair were not legally married but did have a commitment ceremony together.

Though her romantic life has taken a turn in the right direction, June’s family life appears to be in a rocky place.

It was revealed Wednesday that June’s 22-year-old daughter Lauryn –  also known as Pumpkin – was awarded permanent custody of her little sister Alana, as reported by The Sun which claimed to look at court papers filed in Georgia.

The final ruling was handed down in April.

According to the outlet, it was revealed in testimony during the hearing that Alana, 16, had been living with Lauryn and Lauryn’s husband, Josh Efird, 25, since 2019.

June will be allowed visitations, with permission from Lauryn, and must provide $800 a month in child support payments until Alana turns 18.

June lost custody of the teen in 2019 after she and former boyfriend, Geno Doak, 49, were arrested on drug charges.

The former stage mom hit rock bottom and sold her home at a loss in order to get some fast cash. When the money was gone, the beauty pageant veteran claimed she lived in her car before she entered rehab.

Pumpkin received temporary custody in August of that year, and the teen has been living with her ever since. Court documents show both sides agreed to the arrangement.

The custody decision is not the only change to the Efirds’ growing household.

Lauryn and Josh are parents to Ella, 4, Bentley 10 months and twins, a boy and a girl, born May 19.
