Honey Boo Boo's 17-Year-Old Sister Pumpkin Welcomes First Child
Reality TV treasure Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thomson is now an aunt.
That’s right, her 17-year-old sister Lauryn ‘Pumpkin’ Shannon, who appeared on the series “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” welcomed her first child with fiancé Joshua Efird on Friday, a baby girl named Ella Grace.
Shannon shared a photo of the newborn on Instagram to announce her daughter’s arrival.
“Today at 5:01am me and josh officially became parents to a precious 7lb 14oz baby girl,” she wrote. “Everyone meet Ella Grace Efird ❤️ ¶ .”
Her mother, Mama June, was quick to repost the snap and share in her daughter’s joy.
In August, Pumpkin revealed she was expecting, correctly predicting she would have a girl.
“I’m really excited to be a new mom, but there is some challenges that I’m going to have to face,” she said in a video message for WE tv, which airs “Mama June: From Not to Hot. “I’m really nervous about having a baby because it does have to come out of my hoo-ha.”
“My baby daddy’s head is, like, the size of a freakin’ watermelon,” she added.
Pumpkin and Efird have been engaged for two years.
Congrats to the happy family!
