Back in May, Mama June: Road to Redemption star Lauryn Shannon welcomed twins.
If you missed it, don’t feel bad. Shannon and Josh did not announce the birth, or even the pregnancy.
Now, that has changed.
Not only has Lauryn acknowledged the birth of her son and daughter, she has announced their very unusual names.
If you have been following our coverage, you already know that Lauryn gave birth on May 19.
She welcomed her son and daughter in a Georgia hospital that specializes in high-risk pregnancies.
After giving birth via C-section, Lauryn and the twins were sent home and all were doing well.
“High risk” may be an understatement when it comes to concerns about Lauryn.
She welcomed her third and fourth child just ten months after giving birth to Bentley.
We can all do that math. No doctor recommends that.
Lauryn and Josh’s daughter was born first, followed by their son.
The 22-year-old mother of four named this baby girl Stella Renae.
Her baby brother, the youngest, is Sylus Rae.
Those are fairly unique names!
But then again, in a family with such comical nicknames, they will hardly stand out.
Their mother is perhaps still, to this day, best known as “Pumpkin.” An off-spelling of Silas isn’t that big of a deal.
Lauryn and Josh have not actually posted any direct photos of their newborns.
That does not mean that they are still trying to keep their kids a secret.
The couple has now shared a photo with Page Six, even broadcasting the news on Lauryn’s Instagram Story.
Now, more than a month after the babies were born, Lauryn also spoke to The Sun.
She revealed that Stella weighed 6 pounds and 1 ounce at birth.
Sylus weighed 5 pounds and 4 ounces, making him slightly below average newborn weight.
“The family is really happy,” Lauryn announced.
“Things have been stressful adjusting to three babies under one-year-old,” she then admitted.
“And,” Lauryn acknowledged, “just five kids in general.”
“But,” she claimed, “it’s nothing me and Josh can’t handle.”
“This just means life is a little more hectic,” Lauryn then characterized.
“But,” Lauryn concluded, it all “will be so worth it in the end.”
