Lauryn Shannon Gives Birth! Meet Lil Pumpkin!

While June Shannon may have recently gone from Not to Hot, her daughter has accomplished an even more impressive feat:

Lauryn Shannon has now officially gone from not being a parent to being a parent!

She just gave birth to her first child!

Known as “Pumpkin” to anyone who watched her grow up on the former reality series Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, Lauryn is the sister of Honey Boo Boo herself.

She announced she was pregnant back in August, making the confirmation in a way that only a member of the Shannon family can do.

“I’m really excited to be a new mom, but there is some challenges that I am gonna have to face, ” the teenager said in a promo for Season 2 of Mama June: From Not to Hot.

She then added:

“I’m really nervous have having a baby because it does have to come out of my hoo-ha.”

Thankfully, however, Shannon overcame these nerves and welcomed a daughter into the world early Friday morning, even sharing a photo of the bundle of joy with Instagram followers almost immediately.

Check her out here!

“Today at 5:01am me and josh officially became parents to a precious 7lb 14oz baby girl,” Shannon wrote as a caption to this precious image.

As for her name?

“Everyone meet Ella Grace Efird.”

The father is Joshua Brandon Efird, who is pictured below with Lauryn and who has been dating the reality star for several months now.

Pumpkin revealed the gender of her baby in October.

Prior to this reveal, she admitted she was hoping for a daughter.

“I kind of want a girl because, of course, another me, duh!” she said in a WEtv clip.

Another Pumpkin, huh? Should make for some interesting storylines going forward.

In the latest promo for Mama June: From Not to Hot, it was made clear that Lauryn’s pregnancy and her journey to motherhood would be a major focus of the show.

Reads a network press release:

June’s daughter Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon’s unexpected pregnancy forces her and boyfriend Josh to grow up and take on adult responsibilities.

But that doesn’t stop June and Pumpkin from butting heads as less than mature Josh moves in.

Sounds intriguing!

Emily Maynard Gives Birth to Baby #4!

Welp. She’s done it again, folks.

Emily Maynard gave birth to her fourth child on Sunday, an incredible feat for any woman made even more incredible by the fact that three of these children are under the age of three.

Yes, allow us to repeat that:

Emily Maynard and husband Tyler Johnson have three kids under the age of three.

Sources say they have not slept through the night in approximately three years.

In anticipation of the blessed event over the weekend, Johnson shared a funny video on his Instagram Story, as he accompanied his very pregnant wife to the hospital.

“Baby four, let’s get it,” he said as they strolled into the hospital foyer, adding:

“Can’t wait to meet you. We love you.”

As you’ll see below, the excited daddy-to-be proceeded to post several photos of Maynard at the hospital throughout the day.

There are images of his wife prior to giving birth… then holding her newborn… and eventually the baby meeting her older sister.

Oddly enough, however, Johnson never mentions the newborn’s gender or name in any of these posts.

We’re not judging.

They’re entitled to their privacy.

We’re just acknowledging that various details regarding the baby are being kept quiet for now.

In addition to this latest bundle of joy, Maynard is the mother toa 12-year-old daughter Ricki, from a previous relationship. Maynard.

She and her husband, meanwhile, share two sons: Jennings Tyler, 2; and Gibson Kyle, 1

The former Bachelorette star announced her fourth pregnancy in August.

She posted a cute picture of herself and her oldest son at the time, writing on Instagram:

Way too many tacos at lunch. 

Seriously though, as scared as I am to have 3 under 3, I’m so grateful God picked me to be the mommy to my kids and we can’t wait for number 4 to get here!

This pregnancy has been filled with lots of hot wings, ranch dressing, an emergency appendix surgery at 6 months, and swollen ankles all day every day but I wouldn’t change it for the world.

My little tribe can’t wait to meet their new brother or sister (it’s a surprise!) in the next couple of weeks!

Speaking in the past to Good Morning America, Maynad said the following about life at home with three kids:

“It is crazy at our house all the time. But it’s a lot of fun.”

She now has FOUR kids, one of whom needs help with absolutely everything.

So we really can’t imagine how much crazier things must be.

But we wish her the best!
