By Francesca Bacardi
Honey Boo Boo heartbreakingly shared she doesn’t have friends — but she does have a boyfriend.
The reality star, whose real name is Alana Thompson, has secretly been dating college student Dralin Carswell for six months, the US Sun reported Tuesday. Despite their four-year age gap, Thompson’s family reportedly approves of the budding romance.
“Dralin and Alana are attached at the hip and hang out together all the time,” an insider told the outlet. “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.”
Thompson, 16, and Carswell, 20, appeared to confirm their courtship in March when he changed his Facebook status to “in a relationship.”
Thompson also updated her relationship status and posted a selfie with Carswell on her private Facebook account and made it her cover photo. Carswell wrote “bae” with a heart emoji in the comments section of their photo.
The couple reside in Georgia, where the age of consent is 16.
A rep for Thompson didn’t immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
