From reality TV to real family life! Lauryn ‘Pumpkin’ Shannon and fiancé Joshua Efird have started a brand new chapter in their lives after welcoming their first baby, daughter Ella Grace, on Friday, December 8.
Shannon, 18, spoke exclusively with Us Weekly about her life as a new mom, how Mama June Shannon and Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson have been since the baby arrived and what her relationship is like with Efird now.
June was actually in the room with her daughter during the labor, Shannon revealed, along with Efird and his mother. While she was in labor for over 24 hours, the new mother did admit the process wasn’t as bad as she expected. “The hardest thing about having a baby was having to push,” she tells Us.
