Shannon Beador: Meet My Handsome New Man!
Shannon Beador has officially moved on from one of the messier divorces in recent Hollywood history.
And not only that, but the Real Housewives of Orange County cast member has moved right into the arms of a very attractive new suitor.
According to People Magazine, Beador is now dating a fellow California native named John Janssen.
He’s a divorced father of three who graduated years ago from the University of Southern California.
Janssen is 56 years old, met Beador through a mutual friend and he works as a partner at an insurance firm.
“Shannon’s really happy,” a source close to the couple tells this publication, adding of her new lover:
“He’s a great guy, and really adores her. And she is equally smitten. They make a great couple together and have been having a lot of fun.”
Just how serious is this romance?
It’s a bit too early to say for certain, but both sides have met the other’s kids — which is obviously a pretty huge deal in the world of dating and relationships.
“The girls really like him,” the insider says of Shannon’s three daughters: Sophie, 18, and twins Stella and Adeline, 15.
This past Tuesday, as you can see above, Shannon posed on Instagram with Janssen, sharing a smiling photo of the two during a night out in Newport Beach.
It’s been quite a journey for Beador to arrive at this happy place in her personal life.
Shannon and ex-husband David Beador broke up in September 2017 after over 17 years of marriage; she then filed to end their marriage in December of this same year.
Accusations of infidelity were subsequently hurled back and forth by both Shannon and David, with the former admitting she gained forty pounds due to stress from the marriage and then the split.
She said many times that David checked out of the relationship as soon as her body started to change.
Finally, after a year and a half of ugly allegations, the reality stars settled their divorce in April — he agreed to pay her $ 1.4 million.
They also agreed to joint legal and physical custody of their daughters.
The Real Housewives of Orange County kicks off season 14 on in August 6 at 9/8c on Bravo.
Beador has already said that she’s back to her original weight and focused on the return of “Fun Shannon,” to use her own words.
