AMERICAN Pickers star Mike Wolfe and his new girlfriend, Leticia Cline, are getting serious, as the two hit a local street fair with his mother Rita.
In exclusive photos obtained by The Sun, Mike, 57, and Leticia, 42, were spotted at the Tugfest Tug-Of-War festival in his hometown of Le Claire, Iowa on Saturday.
The Beauty and the Geek contestant has already met the American Pickers star’s mother, as his mom Rita joined them for the festival.
Mike and Leticia even shared a steamy kiss during the outing.
The happy trio later enjoyed the tug-of-war competition across the Mississippi River between Le Claire and the town of Port Byron, Illinois from a VIP tent.
The family get-together comes one day after Mike and Leticia made their public debut as a couple.
In photos obtained by The Sun, the new couple enjoyed a day of running errands and attending a local parade.
They were all smiles while she walked his Border Collie dog Francie.
The two were also spotted sharing a steamy kiss as Leticia got into her van for the next stop.
The Playboy and Maxim model was then photographed pushing a wagon filled with groceries, while her boyfriend stopped to take selfies with fans.
The couple also attended a local parade that is part of Tugfest festival.
In video obtained by The Sun, Mike and Leticia seemed to enjoy the festivities, as cars decorated with signs, flags, streamers and more drove by.
The collector was seen wearing a hand bandage on both days.
He told those that spoke with him that he had sustained the injury while trying to rescue a friend’s dog.
The new romance comes after Mike’s ex Jodi filed for divorce from him in November 2020 after 10 years of marriage.
They share nine-year-old daughter Charlie Faeth Wolfe.
There was no sign of Mike’s former American Pickers co-star Frank Fritz during the outing, despite the fact that he lives just up the road.
Frank, 57, previously told The Sun of their falling out: “I haven’t talked to Mike in two years. He knew my back was messed up, but he didn’t call me up and ask how I was doing. That’s just how it is.
"The show is tilted towards him 1,000 percent. I can’t even bend that far down to show you how much.
"That’s fine. It’s like you’ve got Aerosmith and there’s Steven Tyler and he’s the front man. I found my spot, I’m second and he’s number one on the show. That’s no problem with me, maybe he does have a problem.”
Frank last appeared on American Pickers during a March 2020 episode, as he took time off to recover from back surgery, which left him with 185 stitches and two rods in his spine.
During his time off the show, Frank lost 65 pounds, as he is living a healthier lifestyle and is sober from alcohol.
He told The Sun that he entered rehab for alcohol addiction in Iowa for 77 days and is 11 months sober.
Frank expressed his desire to return to the History show.
He previously told The Sun: “I would like to come back to the show. I was doing it for 11 years.
"I’m 100 percent recovered now and I’m ready to roll and go back on the show.”
But Mike revealed Frank has been fired from the show on Instagram in July.
Despite their drama, Mike, who owns Antique Archaeology in Nashville, previously told The Sun he would like to see his longtime friend back on the History series.
Mike said: “We all do care about Frank and we want him back on the show. I would love to talk with him again, we would absolutely love to, but he just can't get it right.
"Frank is just going through a lot personally with addictions. It's unfortunate that he's made decisions that have him the way he is.”
