Mama June Shannon’s Teen Daughter “Pumpkin” Announces She’s Pregnant in ‘From Not to Hot’ Season 2 Promo

‘I’ve got a baby in me, y’all!”

Mama June Shannon‘s body may be getting smaller, but her family is getting bigger!

The From Not to Hot star’s reality show was just renewed for a second season by WEtv, but that’s not the biggest news to come out of the Honey Boo Boo family this week. On Monday, June’s 17-year-old daughter, Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon announced that she’s expecting her first child.

“Hey guys! Guess what? I’m pregnant!” Lauryn announced on a video posted to WEtv’s website on Monday.

Pumpkin said that, although she is excited about the baby, she’s scared as well.

“I’m really excited to be a new mom, but there is some challenges that I am gonna have to face, ” she says into the camera. “I’m really nervous having a baby because it does have to come out of my hoo-ha.”

The teen mom-to-be said that she’s not really enjoying her pregnancy so far.

“I really wish I could have this child right now,” she said. “I hate being pregnant, but you know, you gotta do what you gotta do.”

Although she doesn’t know the sex of her baby yet, Pumpkin predicts it will be a girl.

“If I had to bet, because of all the girls in our family, I’m probably having a girl,” she explained. “Could you imagine another f**king little me running around? You guys are gonna be f**ked!”

Awww….so beautifully put, Pumpkin.

After announcing her pregnancy, Pumpkin revealed on her Facebook page that the baby’s father is Joshua Efird.

“So now that the news is out me and Josh are expecting a little one,” Pumpkin wrote in the caption of a photo collage of her and Josh. “So happy to start this new adventure with him. I am so proud, Love you baby.”

Joshua’s Instagram page states that he and Pumpkin have been together since March 2015, and that they are currently engaged.

Pumpkin is the second of Mama June’s kids to get pregnant as a teenager. During the first season of ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,’ June’s then-teen daughter Anna (aka “Chickadee”) gave birth to her first child. (She has since married and welcomed another daughter.)

“I’m just so ding-dang proud!”

Fans will get to see Pumpkin’s pregnancy play out during the second season of ‘Mama June: From Not to Hot.’ WEtv announced this week that 10 new episodes of the show will premiere in early 2018. In addition to covering Pumpkin’s pregnancy, Season 2 will also follow Mama June in the aftermath of her massive weight loss.

In Season 2, June “tries to navigate life following a whirlwind year and losing hundreds of pounds,” the network states.

  1. She hates being pregnant ( well here’s a thought keep your legs closed) what an insult to those who can’t have children, then morons like her shoot them out like shelling peas

  2. This family is literally the realistic version of teen mom. Mama June was a real teen mom and this is what it looks like without the mtv money. And a good dose of a rural part Georgia. *not judging…I’m from Kentucky lol.

  3. “I’m really nervous having a baby because it does have to come out of my hoo-ha.” Ahh yes, the closely guarded secret of parenthood, the journey down the ‘hoo-ha’. Thank goodness she is approaching her impending teenage parenthood with a sensible head on her shoulders!

  4. Gestational diabetes here we come! This young lady is so unhealthy there’s no way she’s changing a lifetime of bad eating habits and no exercise now. They only lose weight in that family if they get paid.

      1. She is in some college in Georgia. She is the first in her family to graduate high school on time and the first not to have a teen pregnancy.

  5. Wasn’t she a lesbian not too long ago? Am I thinking of the wrong one?
    Also, I don’t think Anna’s husband is her first daughter’s father. The baby was already born when he came around. I think Baby Daddy #1 bailed before the show started.

    1. I was just going to say the same thing. I’m pretty certain she was the one that said she was a lesbian. Maybe she said bi-sexual.

  6. Anna’s current husband is not the father of her first child (daughter, Kaitlin). If I remember correctly, that baby daddy was not involved in Kaitlin’s life. He is however the father of her second child.
    *WhydoIevenknowthiscrap* ?

  7. Y’all are being too hard on her, they don’t need an education to go to the local junk-food auction and fill their baby up on chips and Twinkies. ??

  8. Even just how she announced her pregnancy is grounds to get a social worker in that house as soon as that baby is born. Those people aren’t fit to raise a herd of wild animals let alone children!

  9. It takes a lot to make me laugh out loud when I’m reading, but I lost it at “Aww…so beautifully put, Pumpkin.” Hahahahah!!

  10. Anna’s first daughter isn’t her husband’s but the second is. Pretty sure they have separated tho. Also pumpkin did come out as gay but obviously she meant bi. I’m pretty sure she also said herself and her fiance we’re waiting to get married before they had sex. That clearly went out the window. Just going by how she was on here comes hunny boo boo, I don’t think she’s really mature enough to be a mum, and it sounds like she hasn’t changed much from then. Hopefully this all works out, but I’m not holding my breath

  11. I don’t know why anybody is surprised. June was a pregnant teenager, her sister was a pregnant teenager. Education isn’t valued in her family. They’re embarrassing garbage people.

  12. I can’t believe she’s 17, she looks so much older. However, she acts soooooo much younger. What’s slightly unnerving is we have the same first and middle names (although mine aren’t spelt like hers!) x

  13. I mean, I don’t watch this show but I think June should have been more worried about her daughters not getting knocked up at such a young age than how hot she is now! If it goes like this, Honey Boo Boo will be pregnant in a few years too! Also, he is 3 years older. Didn’t she see even the slightest problem with 15-year old dating a 18-year old in 2015?

  14. Wish that she was more worried about the fact that she has no education or skills rather than worrying about labour!

    1. I think you’re thinking of the daughter in sister wives. But I could be mistaken who you’re talking about
