In a new photo, Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon of Honey Boo Boo introduces newborn twins
The gorgeous newborn children that Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon and her husband Joshua Efird welcomed last month have finally been made public. Lauryn is the daughter of Mama June Shannon from Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
The couple can be seen with their children, Sylus Ray Efird and Stella Renae Efird, in a precious family photo that was taken at a motel close to their Gordon, Georgia, home.
Almost a year after receiving her and Joshua’s second child, son Bentley, in July 2021, Pumpkin gave birth to the twins through C-section on May 19.
Pumpkin’s younger sister, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, whom the 22-year-old took custody of from their mother in April, and their 4-year-old daughter Ella were also shown with their parents.
Pumpkin never told anyone on social media about the births of her third and fourth children. She kept the news to herself.
But the WE TV show Mama June: Road to Redemption, which is about her mother’s commitment to sobriety after getting into trouble with the law and using drugs, shows her family life in a very real way.
The Pumpkin recently revealed that her 43-year-old headline-making activities had had a serious impact on her marriage to Joshua.
In the June 10 episode, she confessed, “Mama has been a lot of me and Josh’s marriage troubles over the last couple of years.”
We’re trying to put our marriage first, and the biggest thing we can do to do that is to give Josh the freedom to leave whenever Mama is mentioned or when she is actually present.
This week, Honey Boo Boo, 16, herself made news when she allegedly got engaged to her boyfriend, Dralin Carswell, 20, after being spotted with a diamond ring on that finger.
The star of Toddlers & Tiaras won’t be taking the bride down the aisle just yet, though. On June 21, her rep told E! News that the piece of jewelry is “just a ring” and nothing special.
