Sugar Bear is finally making an honest woman out of Mama.
June Shannon (aka "Mama") and Mike Thompson (aka "Sugar Bear") -- stars of TLC's reality series Here Comes Honey Boo Boo -- were set to marry Sunday in McIntyre, Ga., according to a wedding invitation posted online by TMZ.
"You are invited to share in their joy as they exchange marriage vows," reads the invitation.
The couple -- parents to 7-year-old beauty pageant contestant Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson -- reportedly met nine years ago in a chat room. They have been living together along with Shannon's three daughters from previous relationships: Lauryn (aka "Pumpkin"), Anna (aka "Chickadee") and Jessica (aka "Chubbs").
Fans of the series might get a chance to get an up-close look at the nuptials: According to the invitation, "This will be a taped event."
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, a spinoff of Toddlers & Tiaras, became a breakout hit for TLC when it debuted last year, prompting the network to order additional episodes as well as a trio of holiday specials. It stands as TLC's second-most-watched launch of 2012 and its third-most-watched series.
