Television personality Alana Thompson, known by the stage name Honey Boo Boo is living it up as she embraces life under the custody of her big sister, Lauryn "Pumpkin" Efrid.
A recent photo shared by the teenager proved the "girls" were more than just siblings as they posed together, alongside Pumpkin's daughter Ella Grace Efrid.

HANGING WITH THE GIRLS
The fifteen-year-old shared a photo on Instagram, showing her flanked by her pregnant sister, Pumpkin, and daughter Ella who remained safely tucked in a blue floating vest.
The three women were all smiles as they enjoyed a joyride on a boat. Their excitement was unmistakable, attracting bouts of commendations from fans.
Honey Boo Boo made the post more envy-inducing, referring to Pumpkin and Ella as her "girls for life" via the caption. Sure enough, fans noticed the teenager's acknowledgment of her sister, who became her legal guardian following Mama June's arrest on drug charges.
Most utilized the platform to commend the three divas for always having each other's backs in all circumstances and state that their love for each other is commendable.
RELATIONSHIP WITH MAMA JUNE
While the sisters have learned to stick up for each other through the years, such is hardly the case in their relationship with their mom. The controversial "From Not To Hot" star Mama June has experienced several fallouts with her four daughters in the last decade.
This fallout has led her to become estranged from the quad, including Anna "Chickadee" Cardwell, Jessica "Chubbs" Shannon, Pumpkin, and Honey Boo Boo.
Notably, the star, who has been frolicking in Florida with her boyfriend Geno, remained ousted from her daughters' lives for almost a decade. In fact, all six women reunited for the first time in six years last month in celebration of Pumpkin's baby shower.
While the event seemed like the perfect family reunion, Chickadee clarified to the public days later, that their rift was far from over. According to the 26-year-old, June never apologized for her past mistakes during the reunion. Hence, she had no intention of forcing the relationship.
Fans of the WeTV show are aware of the ongoing feud in June's family, which can be attributed to several occurrences that have happened over the years.
Most of these fallout results from the 41-year old's big mistakes involving substance abuse and wrong romantic choices. The rift between Chickadee and her mom began following June's decision to rekindle her relationship with Mark McDaniel.
McDaniel served jail time for molesting the former as a child. The WeTV star's penchant for brushing off the subject has further strained her relationship with Chickadee.
Things worsened after Chickadee filed a $300,000 lawsuit against June for failing to pay her and her daughter for their appearances on "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo."
The crisis only heightened following June's involvement in substance abuse which plunged her into bankruptcy and addiction. She relinquished custody of Honey Boo Boo to Pumpkin following her 2019 arrest for drug possession alongside her boyfriend, Geno Doak.
Although the "Road To Redemption" star recently celebrated her sixteen months of sobriety from drugs and alcohol, she seems a long way off from repairing the years of damages. Points for those baby steps!
