Lauryn ‘Pumpkin’ Shannon is a married woman!
The 18-year-old daughter of Mama June has tied the knot with her fiancé Joshua Efird over the weekend in Las Vegas, a source has confirmed to PEOPLE. E! News has confirmed that a marriage license was issued for the couple last week in Nevada. As per TMZ— after tying the knot— Joshua, Lauryn and her famous family, including her younger sister Alana ‘Honey Boo Boo’ Thompson, headed towards Buca di Beppo for dinner. Joshua has popped the question in 2016, and while the couple has waited to become a married couple, they did celebrate different titles last year.
In December, the couple has welcomed their first child, baby girl Ella Grace Efird, together. When announcing her baby news in a video posted to WE tv’s website, Lauryn has said: “I’m excited to be a new mom, but there are some challenges that I’m going to have to face. I’m nervous about having a baby because it does have to come out of my hoo-ha.”
After their daughter’s arrival, the couple has come closer. Previously, the mother of one has told US Weekly: “They say [babies] change things, but honestly I think a kid is maybe what we needed in our relationship. We’ve become closer than any other time. We both help each other out. It’s like it’s a team thing now.”
While there has been much change in their lives, Lauryn is happy to have Joshua by her side. In January, she wrote on social media: “Me and Josh have been together almost three years, and just a month ago we welcomed a precious little girl into our lives. I cannot stress enough how much both of them mean to me.”
Lauryn’s career kicked off from her appearance in her family’s reality show, “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”— which has followed the life of her little sister Alana Thompson, who became a breakout star on “Toddlers & Tiaras.” They now appear on the WE Tv show Mama June: From Not to Hot alongside their mother— who has reportedly lost 300 lbs.
