Garlan gushed about how he sure does “love my buddy” Mike, 57.
The senator had spent “a day in Cullman with my new friend” Leticia, 43.
Mike and Leticia posed with Garlan for the snapshot and shared a smile with him.
Garlan wrote: “Mike is the epitome of the icon of American antiques and American Preservation.”
He claimed that the TV host was about “to start the thirteenth season” of the popular series.
The Alabama senator concluded: “We are proud to have him in our small town today and to be his host for the day!”
The rare photo comes months after Mike and Leticia went on a couple’s outing to an incredible cave with friends.
Leticia shared a snap in her Stories as the two were deep underground in a cavern.
The Maxim model captioned the post: “You can’t come to @visitcavecity and not see @mammothcavenps The world’s longest cave. (Ove 420 miles long).”
Leticia shared another snap of her friend and wrote: “Took a few miles and 200 stairs off.”
Mike and Leticia went public with their romance back in August 2021 during a trip to his hometown of Le Claire, Iowa in exclusive photos obtained by The Sun.
One year later, Mike finalized his divorce with Jodi.
In the divorce settlement filed in court and obtained by The Sun, the star was ordered to pay her over $6million, including royalties from the show and alimony.
Jodi was awarded their $2million Nashville, Tennessee marital home and their North Carolina abode.
Mike has sole ownership of the remaining 13 properties located in Tennessee and Iowa.
Recently, Mike and his brother Robbie Wolfe had a good scream together as they stumbled upon a terrifying surprise while they were antiquing.
Robbie had opened up a water trough and found a “huge black snake.”
Unfortunately, the latest episode comes at a time when the show’s ratings have taken a deep dive.
The Sun recently revealed that January 15 episode brought in just 859,000 viewers.
This was a drastic decline compared to January 8 episode, which had about 1,011,000 viewers tuning in.
Episodes featuring fan-favorite host Frank had higher ratings, including the final episode in March 2020 which brought in 1,282,000 viewers.
Disappointed fans mentioned they were planning to boycott the show due to Frank’s firing.
