Mama June Shannon’s daughter, Lauryn “Pumpkin” Efird, is proudly showing off her twin babies and revealing their names for the first time. 


Pumpkin and her husband, Josh Efird, welcomed Sylus Ray and Stella Renae on May 19. The 22-year-old gave birth, via cesarean section, at a Georgia hospital. The Mama June: Road to Redemption couple are now parents to four children under five, with older sibs Ella, 4, and Bentley, 1, posing in sweet family photos alongside their parents and Pumpkin’s little sister, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson. 

Stella weighed in at 6 pounds 1 oz and Sylus, who arrived a minute later, weighed 5 pounds 4 oz. Pumpkin shared that Josh was the only one allowed with her in the delivery room. Josh’s mother, stepfather and grandmother were the first people to visit the newborns. 

Pumpkin spoke to The Sun about the newest members of her family.

“The family is really happy. Things have been stressful adjusting to three babies under one year old and just five kids in general but it’s nothing me and Josh can’t handle,” the busy mom said. “This just means life is a little more hectic but will be so worth it in the end.”

Pumpkin’s aunt, Jo “Doe Doe” Shannon, 51, was recently spotted unloading diapers, baby wipes, and other supplies at the couple’s Georgia home. Pumpkin’s sister, Jessica “Chubbs” Shannon, 25, was seen transferring the items into the house.  

Pumpkin and Josh were reportedly upset after June failed to show up to help out after meeting her new grandchildren in the hospital. 

June has not been by to see Pumpkin or the babies since they’ve been home,” a source previously told The Sun. “She hasn’t been to their house to check on her or try to help.” 


Pumpkin vented on her Facebook page about the situation about a week after she gave birth. 

She wrote—“Just putting this out into the air but it’s literally up to NO ONE but YOU to make sure you have a relationship with your grandkids, niece, nephew- etc. And if you don’t, you got no one to blame but you.”  

Pumpkin added—“If you wanna see them, drive. If you wanna call them, call. It is not- I repeat NOT up to the PARENT to make sure you know their child. They are way too busy raising said child/children & already being active in their lives to worry about how active you are.  

“Kids won’t miss who they don’t know. The end,” she concluded.


June, 42, currently lives in Alabama with her new husband, Justin Stroud. Justin, 34, is reportedly embroiled in legal issues that are preventing him from residing out of state. 

June was recently ordered to pay Pumpkin $800 monthly in child support after the young mother was awarded custody of June’s youngest child, Alana.

The final custody order, issued in April 2022, noted that Pumpkin has had guardianship of Alana, 16, since April 29, 2019. 

“It is in the best interest of the child that the plaintiff is awarded sole custody.”
