Who is Honey Boo Boo’s boyfriend, Dralin Carswell?
While not much is known about his personal life, a source to The U.S. Sun that he is a college student.
“Dralin and Alana are attached at the hip and hang out together all the time,” an insider revealed.
The insider continued: “He was quiet at first, but he’s like one of the family now. He’s just as fun and crazy as the rest of them.”
What is the age difference between Honey Boo Boo and Dralin Carswell?
At first, fans loved seeing Alana happy amid all the drama with her mom, June “Mama June” Shannon, but their opinions of her relationship quickly changed after they discovered the age difference between them.
Alana began dating Dralin when she was 16 and he was 21.
The Mama June: Road to Redemption star has since spoken out about the age gap, revealing that it doesn’t bother her or her family.
“In our relationship, the two most things that everybody is always talking about is our age gap and definitely because he’s Black and I’m white and we’re an interracial couple,” Alana said during an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
“I don’t care because, like, at the end of the day, my sister approves, his mom approves, and we’re happy, so what fans got to say or what haters got to say I don’t really care,” she continued.
Pumpkin confirmed her sister’s claims, revealing that she thinks her sister is emotionally mature enough to date an older man.
“She’s not getting married, she’s not having a kid, she’s doing very good in school,” Pumpkin explained.
She went on to add that she thinks Alana and her man are “on the same wavelength.”
