"Honey Boo Boo" star Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon and her husband, Joshua, have been married for three years and are about to welcome their second child.


Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon, who now goes by her husband's surname, Efird, celebrated her third anniversary with her husband, Joshua, and shared a heartfelt Instagram post to celebrate.

Lauryn shared three photos to celebrate her anniversary. The first picture was a gorgeous photo of her and Joshua on their wedding day. She held a beautiful maroon and pink flower bouquet, while her husband's bowtie matched the flowers.

The second photo was a candid of Joshua smiling towards the camera. The last image was taken shortly after Lauryn gave birth to the couple's first baby, Ella, who is now three years old.

Alongside the three photos, Lauryn penned a heartfelt message for her husband of three years. She thanked him for everything he does for their family, expressed how much she loved him, and wrote:

"Today marks 3 years being married to my partner in crime, my very best friend, & most importantly my better half."


Lauryn shared that the couple has had their fair share of bad days, but they managed to overcome them. The soon-to-be mother of two added that she would always be proud to call Joshua her husband.

Lauryn and her daughter even planned a special gender reveal for June.

The pair and their daughter feature on the reality TV show "Mama June: Road To Redemption," where their lives are shared with viewers, including their recent baby shower for their son Bentley.


The couple opted to have a Winnie The Pooh-themed shower, which also featured yellow and blue decorations and cookies made in the theme. Lauryn explained they chose to have individually wrapped cookies instead of cake because of COVID-19.

Besides celebrating the upcoming birth of her son, the occasion was extra special as her mother, June Shannon, was reunited with all her daughters, Lauryn, Anne, Jessica, and Alana. She and Anne have an estranged relationship, so June explained that it made for a great but awkward reconnection:

"She is still with the same boyfriend and it was a little weird to see them. But I did what I call ‘roll call’ with all the girls being there."


Lauryn's pregnancy seems to be going well. She shared an adorable photo of herself showing off her baby bump in a pair of denim overalls and a tie-dye T-shirt last month. In the caption, she wrote that she was having a hot mom summer.

The reality TV star's pregnancy did not start smoothly because at her daughter's third birthday, June's ex-husband, Mike 'Sugar Bear' Thompson's girlfriend Jennifer, revealed that Lauryn was pregnant, even though she was trying to keep it a secret.


June and Lauryn's younger sister, Alana, were distraught by the news and felt hurt that Lauryn had told Jennifer she was pregnant before informing them. Luckily, the family has moved on from that drama.

Lauryn and her daughter even planned a special gender reveal for June. People shared an exclusive clip of the moment which featured Ella and her mother presenting June with a homemade cake.
