The pair's relationship has been chronicled on the popular reality show, which is filmed around their rural hometown of McIntyre, Georgia, and features child beauty pageant star Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson as well as her three sisters: Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon, Jessica "Chubbs" Shannon, and Anna "Chickadee" Shannon.

In May, the couple exchanged vows in front of their children in their Georgia backyard, showing off their love for each other during happier times in a commitment ceremony (the two never technically married).
