Mama June and Sugar Bear (aka Honey Boo Boo's mom and dad) are getting married, ya'll! They just announced that they are making it official--I mean, more official than living together and having kids does, I guess--by getting legally married.

I'm super happy for them! I love Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, 7, because I feel like she is just 100% herself all day every day and has confidence and sass for days, I never really thought about the "illegitimate" nature of the relationship between her hilarious parents. She obviously gets that from her mom, June Shannon!

Who really cares if they are married? Well, I bet the kids do and I'm pretty sure that little Alana is going to be super excited to be a part of the marriage of her parents. So, I'm super happy for them. Also, that wedding is going to NUTS ya'll! TV gold, seriously.

Do you think they'll have a mud pit? Will Glitter the gay pig be invited? So many questions! 

The wedding will take place today, on Cinco de Mayo, in McIntyre, Georgia and is going to be taped for their huge hit reality TV show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, so we'll eventually get to see exactly what went down in what is bound to be the, um, most interesting wedding of the year! 

I love this family, not because of the fact that they have successfully elevated redneck culture to acceptability but because they so openly love and accept each other no matter what their weight, sexual orientation (they have a gay uncle who is HIV+) or really, what anyone else thinks. Now, THAT's what I call family, and it's what really matters.

So, congrats to June Shannon and Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson! I'm sure their marriage will last way longer than most Hollywood TV marriages do.
