Lauryn ‘Pumpkin’ Efird was just as surprised as anyone when she learned of her third pregnancy. Yet, even after she gave birth to her twins, fans still were in disbelief. It took a photoshoot one month later to put the rumors to rest. Yes, Pumpkin was officially a mother of four. Now, she is sharing photos of Stella and Sylus on her personal Instagram and followers can’t get enough.
Pumpkin: Mama To All And Then Some
No, she did not expect to become a mother at seventeen. Pumpkin was enjoying her romance with her boyfriend, Josh Efird. Soon enough, the two were parents to daughter Ella and preparing for a Vegas wedding. Unfortunately, the “newlywed bliss” was about to fade. Pumpkin’s mother, Mama June had gotten hard into drugs with her boyfriend, Geno Doak. There was the issue of Alana ‘Honey Boo Boo’ Thompson, June’s youngest daughter, and where she should go.
In 2019, Pumpkin took in her sister, Alana so she would have a safe stable space to live. The following year, their older sister, Jessica ended up moving in, as well. In 2021, Pumpkin and Josh welcomed their second baby, a son named Bentley. It was a lot to digest with all of the people in the home. However, June was about to come back and say she wanted to be a part of the family. That was short-lived as she soon took off to be with a man in Alabama. She spent an excessive amount of money on him until he ended up engaged to another woman.
June met another man on her adventure, Justin Stroud and they fell in love. She came home, got a new house near Pumpkin, and said Alana could stay there anytime. That was when Pumpkin decided to legally file for sole custody of Alana. At the same time, it was revealed that she was expecting again. Not just one baby but two however no one in the family ever confirmed the pregnancy. Was it even real?
The Twins In The Spotlight
TMZ reported the pregnancy in April but it was still just speculation. Then, The Sun shared that Pumpkin had given birth on May 19, 2022, according to sources close to the family. Fans refused to believe this was true until Pumpkin came out and said something. Finally, Mama June took to TikTok in early June to attempt to clear her name. Many were alleging she was a negligent grandparent and such so she wanted to combat that. In the process, she broke the news that Pumpkin did have twins and she was there for it. A few weeks later, Pumpkin did a family photo shoot with all of her kids, showing off the twins for the first time.
They have been seen in a public forum when the family vacationed in California. Now, for the first time, Pumpkin is sharing personal Instagram photos of her twins. This past week, they celebrated Bentley’s first birthday. During that time, Pumpkin took a bunch of pictures and did a huge drop of them on social media. Three of them were her twins Stella and Sylus. Little sister seems to be all smiles while Sylus appears to be more reserved. Either way, it is great to see them up close and personal.
