While June Shannon may have recently gone from Not to Hot, her daughter has accomplished an even more impressive feat:

Lauryn Shannon has now officially gone from not being a parent to being a parent!

She just gave birth to her first child!


Known as "Pumpkin" to anyone who watched her grow up on the former reality series Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, Lauryn is the sister of Honey Boo Boo herself.

She announced she was pregnant back in August, making the confirmation in a way that only a member of the Shannon family can do.

"I’m really excited to be a new mom, but there is some challenges that I am gonna have to face, " the teenager said in a promo for Season 2 of Mama June: From Not to Hot.

She then added:

"I’m really nervous have having a baby because it does have to come out of my hoo-ha."

Thankfully, however, Shannon overcame these nerves and welcomed a daughter into the world early Friday morning, even sharing a photo of the bundle of joy with Instagram followers almost immediately.

Check her out here!

Lauryn Shannon Baby

"Today at 5:01am me and josh officially became parents to a precious 7lb 14oz baby girl," Shannon wrote as a caption to this precious image.

As for her name?

"Everyone meet Ella Grace Efird."

The father is Joshua Brandon Efird, who is pictured below with Lauryn and who has been dating the reality star for several months now.

Pumpkin revealed the gender of her baby in October.

Prior to this reveal, she admitted she was hoping for a daughter.

"I kind of want a girl because, of course, another me, duh!" she said in a WEtv clip.

Pumpkin and Boyfriend

Another Pumpkin, huh? Should make for some interesting storylines going forward.

In the latest promo for Mama June: From Not to Hot, it was made clear that Lauryn’s pregnancy and her journey to motherhood would be a major focus of the show.

Reads a network press release:

June’s daughter Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon’s unexpected pregnancy forces her and boyfriend Josh to grow up and take on adult responsibilities.

But that doesn’t stop June and Pumpkin from butting heads as less than mature Josh moves in.

Sounds intriguing!
