Shannon Beador Celebrates 1-Year Anniversary with Boyfriend at Same Place They Had First Date
Shannon Beador celebrates a year of love with her boyfriend John Janssen.
To celebrate the Lovebirds' milestone anniversary, Orange County Star and Janssen's Real Housewives returned to the same restaurant where they had their first date in June 2019.
"A year ago, the first Date @fableandspirit," Beador, 56, wrote on Instagram about the restaurant in Newport Beach, California, where her love story began. "A year later, partying at the same place. B #butsocialdistancing," she added Emoji with a wink.
Beador, who shares three daughters - 18-year-old Sophie and 14-year-old twins Stella and Adeline - with ex-husband David Beador, met Janssen through a mutual friend and went public in July last year.
Like Beador, Janssen is a divorced parent of three children and a graduate of the University of Southern California. Both studied at college at the same time, although they did not know each other. Today he works as a partner in an insurance company.
Last month on her 56th birthday, Janssen wrote a sweet homage to Beador, which was posted on his private Instagram account along with a photo of the couple taken last fall at the first BravoCon in New York City.

"Our connection and chemistry are what people dream of," wrote 56-year-old Janssen. "You are my person; the one with whom I should be, the one who makes me feel completely. I fell in love with you almost immediately and my love has always grown stronger than our time together has passed. I think and ask me sometimes if it's real. How have I been blessed? Then I look into your beautiful eyes and know that it is real and what our world should be like. "

"You are such a great woman and surprise me every day," he continued. "I never believed that a woman could be so loving, generous, intelligent, creative, determined, funny, cheerful, hardworking, successful, down-to-earth, caring, protective, loyal, encouraging and definitely have my back. Then I met you; you are all that and more. "
In the message, Janssen also remembered the first time the two met in June last year, and explained that neither of them had expected to fall in love at the time, since both had just ended their relationship.
"The timing was bad and didn't make sense for us or for any of our friends and family members," Janssen recalled. “I wasn't in the right mood to meet someone and I was just trying to find my balance. They weren't looking for a relationship, but after two years of emotionally ending their marriage, they just spent time and had fun with friends. But when something was introduced to me, I knew I had to talk to you. "
"We started with encouraging lyrics that warmed my heart and then talked on the phone for hours that flowed so effortlessly, and then came the group appointment," he said. "I took you and a friend of ours for dinner. The night ended when you and I sang karaoke duets at Elks Club and then talked one on one until the Elks staff told us they had to be locked up. Since that night, you and I have been literally inseparable. I've never spent so much focused time with anyone in my life. I never tire of you, but thrive in your company. "

He ended his note by saying to Beador, “You are my best friend and the woman I cannot live without. Happy Birthday!!!!! I love you with all my heart and with all my soul. You are mine forever and ever amen. "
The mother of three children previously raved about PEOPLE in August that Janssen was a "great guy" with a "kind heart".
"[Johns] is just a great person," she told PEOPLE at BravoCon in November. “If I made a list of the perfect person for me, he would have all of these qualities. You see it in films and think that it is not real. I've never been happier. "
