A couple months ago, Gina Neely revealed its been years since she talked to her ex-husband Pat Neely. Since their children are of age, there hasn’t been a legitimate reason for them to hold a conversation but many fans have wondered what has Pat been up to since he split from his ex-wife. Well, apparently he’s been quite busy. Although Gina is still searching for love, it looks like Pat didn’t waste much time moving forward. New reports have revealed the former Down Home with the Neelys star is actually a married man with a new baby on the way.
Pat’s New Life…:
According to The Blast, a marriage license for Pat Neely has surfaced. It has been reported that the famed chef secretly tied the knot with Tamika Parks in October 2017. The publication has shed light on a marriage certificate filed in Troup County, Georgia on October 7, 2017. After further digging, it was also confirmed that Tamika had added Pat to her home deed back in September 2017. So, it’s quite obvious the relationship is the real deal.
Pat’s new wife confirmed the marriage via Facebook two weeks after they tied the knot. She took to the social network with a striking photo of herself from their big day. She captured the photo with a message about her man. She wrote, “He knows how to make me smile. #HappyDay #IMarriedMyBestFriend#ThankYouGod“

…And Growing Family:
Now, eight months later, she’s shared another interesting post. This time, she’s showin’ off her baby bump. Tamika’s baby shower reportedly took place sometime in May and the photos she shared on Facebook are the highlights of the memorable event. With one of the photos, she thanked all who attended the shower and confirmed they’ll be welcoming a baby girl in the near future. “Thank you for everyone who took time out of this super busy day to come to our babygirl’s shower. My mom and family put a lot of hard work into it. I felt love as soon as I walked in. That sweet spirit is something else. I couldn’t say a speech bc I knew I would cry. Love you all #ForeverAtYourFeet.”
Although Tamika hasn’t shared any distinct posts of her and Pat, there are a couple photos where you can definitely tell it’s him.
Check out a few other photos Tamika’s posted:
From the looks of it, the new baby will be the second child for both Pat and Tamika as they appear to both have one child each from previous relationships. Tamika reportedly has a three-year-old son and Pat has a 23-year-old daughter from his marriage to Gina.
No Turnin’ Back:
For many fans, Pat and Gina’s split still seems like it happened overnight. But during previous interviews, Gina opted to speak publicly about the situation and she admitted it definitely wasn’t something that happened overnight. Although they seemed lovey-dovey on camera, she revealed it was nothin’ like that behind closed doors. When the cameras weren’t rollin’, they barely said two words to each other.
During an interview with People magazine, she recalled that day back in 2014 when she walked away and never looked back. “I remember leaving with my purse and my duffle bag, and I was out of there,” she said of the day she decided she was done with her marriage. “I haven’t spoken to Pat in four years.” Since that day, Gina never spoke to Pat again. But despite the lack of communication, she admitted there’s no hard feelings. “I don’t wish him any harm, but he’s never reached out to me… I guess he’s well?” she said. “Our girls are older so we’re not really co-parenting or anything.”
Apparently, he is doin’ well. Congrats to Pat and Tamika.
