Justin Stroud Has Been Mama June’s Rock Through Darkest Times

When Mama June came home from a trip to Alabama, her daughters were not happy. She had just dropped $50K on a man she barely knew but had feelings for and wanted to help keep sober. Through him, she met Justin Stroud who had his own demons. The girls were blindsided by another new boyfriend who was also living with June. Lauryn ‘Pumpkin’ Efird compared him to June’s ex and Alana ‘Honey Boo Boo’ Thompson’s father, Sugar Bear. He was not well received at all and then he eloped with June which shocked everyone.

Over time, the girls started to like him and all attended June and Justin’s vow renewal in Florida. More so, June’s daughters appreciated how he put their mother in her place which he did a lot. Unfortunately, right after the Florida wedding in early 2023, June’s eldest daughter, Anna Cardwell, was diagnosed with stage 4 adrenal carcinoma. June and Justin relocated from Alabama to Georgia to help out. Even the girls noted how much of a help he was with getting meds and ensuring everyone was taken care of.


Now, according to People, Mama June is reiterating what an amazing support her husband was during this difficult time:

“Everything that Anna needed, Justin made sure he would go on over and check on her. Just doing something now,¬†we’ve had to take care of [Anna’s daughter] Kaitlyn since November and he does that. But I know he always said that he does stuff that he shouldn’t have to do and I get that, but I also say that too when it comes to that. But I do love and appreciate him even more.”

She did address going to therapy together but he was not completely on board. Though they have not done this as of now, June explained that they have experienced so much in their time together. She feels it is far more than most couples go through in a lifetime. In her mind, that only shows how strong they are as a couple though he has told her to stay honest.

Not How They Planned

Admittedly, this was not how Mama June and Justin Stroud imagined their lives to be when they first got together:

“Me and Justin have been together. We’ve been married two and a half years and we’ve been together almost three years in September. The three years that we have honestly been together have been some crazy times. When I met him, I was working on my relationship with my kids. I was getting to know who I was. He helped with all of that. Then we got married six months after we met and then we moved to Georgia to try to mend that relationship. And even when we moved to Alabama, he was going back and forth helping do that.”

It has not been an easy road by any means but she credits him with helping a lot get back on track. June spent much time being dishonest with both Justin and his mother. This has caused a lot of problems but as she mentioned previously, they have shown their strength.
