KEY POINTS

  • Mama June’s rumored boyfriend Jordan McCollum announced his engagement to Ashlyn Talley on Instagram
  • Fans were happy for the TikTok influencer and congratulated him on his engagement
  • Mama June was photographed heading into a Las Vegas hotel with McCollum last month

Mama June Shannon has been linked to TikTok star Jordan McCollum since she confirmed her split from Geno Doak. But fans were taken aback this weekend when McCollum announced his engagement to a different woman. 

On Sunday, the 24-year-old internet personality proudly announced his engagement to fellow TikTok influencer Ashlyn Talley

McCollum took to Instagram to share a snap of their silhouettes at dusk, with him down on one knee as he proposed to Talley. “Here’s to forever with the love of my life,” McCollum wrote in the caption. 

Many of his fans left congratulatory messages for him and his fiancée, but some also questioned why they got engaged so fast considering that they only started dating about a month ago. 

“Congratulations to the two of you. So happy for you both,” wrote one fan. 

“Congratulations!!!! You’ve come so far! You deserve all the happiness that’s coming your way and sooooooo much more,” another commented. 

“It never defines how long someone’s been together. If they know their [sic] the ones, then so be it. It’s all about happiness. Congratulations, you two,” added a third user. 

Aside from his videos on TikTok, where he currently has over 1.2 million followers, McCollum made the headlines in recent months as he was linked to the 42-year-old “Mama June: From Not to Hot” star. 

Late last month, the mother of Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson and McCollum turned heads when they were spotted together heading to the high-end Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas. At the time, the pair was seen exiting a black stretch limousine and carrying white plastic bags into the establishment. 

Although the two have been fueling speculations of a potential romance since Mama June's breakup from longtime partner Geno, the controversial matriarch clarified on social media that McCollum is her best friend and that nothing more is going on between them aside from that. 

When McCollum introduced Talley, who is a mother of two, as his girlfriend on Instagram in September, Mama June made it clear that she was aware of their relationship. 

“I’m so happy for you … can’t wait to get to know her more [and] become her friend too like I am yours, always,” the TLC star wrote at the time.
