Teen ‘Mama June’ Star Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon Gets Married to Baby Daddy Josh Efird

“Are we still fixin’ to go down to the tractor pull show for the honeymoon or no?”

Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon has gone from teen mom to teen bride!

The 18-year-old Mama June: From Not to Hot star got married on Monday in Las Vegas, tying the knot with her fiance (and baby daddy) Josh EfirdTMZ broke the news that the at least some of the Honey Boo Boo gang attended the nuptials, including Lauryn’s mom Mama June Shannon and sister Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson.

And, naturally, because this family doesn’t do anything unless TV cameras are there to capture the Kodak moment, WEtv cameras were there, filming the whole blessed event for an upcoming season of the ‘Mama June’ reality show. (The next season of the reality TV trainwreck/makeover show premieres in June.)

Lauryn and Josh became parents back in December when they welcomed their daughter Ella Grace. (Lauryn was 17 at the time of Ella’s birth.)

Happy Easter From Our Little Family To Yours ?❤️ @official_josh_efird @ellagraceefird

The couple has been engaged since Lauryn was 16 years old and Josh was 19; however, according to TMZ they wanted to wait until after Lauryn turned 18 to get married.

Pictures posted to TMZ show Lauryn wearing a white bridal gown, and Mama June and Alana (and the rest of the bridal party) decked out in dark red attire. The site reported that, after Lauryn and Josh were hitched, they (well…most likely WEtv, but still) treated the whole clan to a dinner at the family dining restaurant Buca di Beppo on the Las Vegas Strip.

  1. Okay so they are tacky…but, I have a soft spot for these folks…I love Mama June and wish this little family all the best.


  2. We know Mama June signed off on all that ink. I died for a tattoo at 17 and my mother would’ve rolled over dead before she allowed it. That said, I was about a month from 18 and was able to find a shop that didn’t ID me and I was able to get the tattoo. I revealed it on my birthday and still got grounded ?


  3. Mama June needs to take charge of her daughters and teach them about eating well and exercise. They seem to run her hoousehd instead of her doing it. She has allowed the tattoos and dating. Wouldn’t surprise me if Honey Boo Boo also became a young mother. I feel for all of them because that is the only kind of life they know.
