Mama June’s daughter Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon and husband Josh Efird welcome twins Sylus and Stella and now, they’re sharing the babies’ first photos.
Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon, older sister of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star Alana Thompson, is gracing fans with photos of the family’s latest additions—newborn twins Sylus Ray and Stella Renae. Reality TV star Pumpkin shares the babies, plus daughter Ella, 4, and son Bentley, almost 1, with husband Josh Efird, who she married in 2018. It’s been a little over a month since Pumpkin gave birth via C-section at a Georgia hospital, but now, she’s ready to show off her bundles of joy.
Rumors began swirling in April that the Efird household would be growing by two in the middle of June. These rumors proved almost correct, with Stella entering the world at 8:50 am on May 19 weighing 6 lbs 1 oz, directly followed by Sylus at 5 lbs 4 oz. Throughout the entirety of her pregnancy, Pumpkin, 22, remained mute on the matter. There were no updates on social media and no grand announcement when the babies were born. Given the controversy surrounding Mama June Shannon, it makes sense that Pumpkin would want to keep this major life update out of the spotlight, especially since Bentley had yet to turn 1.
After taking a month to adjust to life as a mother of two new little ones, Pumpkin is sharing some adorable first pictures of her twins with the public. The Sun released snapshots of Pumpkin and Josh with their kids and Alana, who Pumpkin gained legal custody over during Mama June’s lengthy absence due to addiction. There’s also a sweet photo of Sylus asleep on the shoulder of Josh, who this year celebrated his first Father’s Day as a dad of five, including Alana. Pumpkin told The Sun“The family is really happy. Things have been stressful adjusting to three babies under 1-year-old and just five kids in general, but it’s nothing to me and Josh can’t handle. This just means life is a little more hectic, but will be so worth it in the end.”
Thankfully, Pumpkin has Alana and their older sister Jessica “Chubbs” Shannon on hand to babysit, as well as support from her aunt Jo “Doe Doe” Shannon. According to The Sun sources, “Doe Doe” has been a bigger support system for Pumpkin than Mama June, 42, who recently announced her marriage to Justin Stroud, 34.”June has not been by to see Pumpkin or the babies since they’ve been home,”said a source.”She hasn’t been to their house to check on her or try to help.” Based on June’s track record regarding men, this isn’t exactly surprising. On the current season of Road to Redemptionafter competing on The Masked Singer with Alana, June forced her daughter to travel home alone so that she could visit her love interest at the time, a 24-year-old named Jordan.
Though raising three babies, a toddler, and teenager will be no easy feat for Pumpkin, she seems determined to be a better mother than June. When Pumpkin learned that Alana, 16, was talking to 20-year-old Dralin Carswell, she contacted him privately to set boundaries and ensure he didn’t mean her sister any harm. Josh is also extremely protective over the former Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star, a trait that will surely carry over to his biological children.
