dIs Honey Boo Boo the next member of her family to tie the knot?
Some of the reality TV star’s fans believe that she might already be engaged, even though she won’t even be 17 years old until August. But how did they arrive at this conclusion? Keep reading to get the answers.
Wait, did Honey Boo Boo get engaged?
Fans watched Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson rise to stardom on TLC’s Toddlers & Tiaras. Then her family got their own spin-off show, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. Over the years, fans really got to see Alana grow up.
Now, she’s a teenager and interested in boys. According to Alana, she’s had a serious boyfriend since about 2021. His name is Dralin Carswell and Alana has posted photos of him on her social media pages.
However, the relationship did attract quite a bit of negative attention from fans. They aren’t wild about the four-year-age gap and the fact that Dralin is a legal adult. Alana is still a teen and under the age of 18.
“In an interracial dating thing, it is hard,” Alana’s mother June Shannon told In Touch Weekly. “You know, like, she is 17, she’s gonna be 17. You know, she can make her own decisions and people don’t forget that. Josh and Pumpkin were the same age or even a year younger Pumpkin was than when her and Josh got together.”
So what about the ring that fans spotted on Alana’s finger during the newest season of Mama June?
According to The Sun, it’s just a promise ring, not an engagement ring. Alana’s older sister Pumpkin confirmed that to the publication and said the teen has had it for about a year.
The reality TV family really embraces the budding romance
Fans may have issues with Dralin and Alana’s relationship, but her family seems to approve.
Pumpkin also told The Sun that she and her husband Josh have welcomed Dralin into their family.
“Me and my husband love Dralin. He’s very respectful and treats Alana with the utmost respect. He is around us and our kids a bunch also and we love him for Alana,” she said.
Now that Pumpkin has full custody of Alana, her opinion of the young man really matters. But she might take issue with an engagement before Alana is a legal adult. Hopefully, Dralin will continue to treat Alana well as the series continues. Fans will just have to stick around and see what happens.
