Reality TV star Alana Thompson, also known as Honey Boo Boo Thomson is now an aunt. That right, her 17-year-old sister just gave a birth to a baby daughter. Pumpkin, who appeared on the series Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and her fiancé Joshua Efird welcomed their first child.
They shared the news on social media where the teen reality star shared a photograph of the baby that she captioned “Today at 5:01 am me and Josh officially became parents to a precious 7lb 14oz baby girl. Everyone meet Ella Grace Efird.”

Pumpkin and Efird who have been engaged for two years, named their daughter Ella Grace.
In August, the 17-year-old reality star revealed that she was expecting in a promo clip for season two for Mama June: Not Too Hot. “I kind of want a girl because, of course, another me,’ she declared in the clip. ‘Duh.’
Looks like she correctly predicted she would have a girl. “You know what, I really do hope I have a girl,” she continued, “because you guys are going to be in trouble. Another little me running around: Pumpkin Jr!”
Honey Boo Boo’s teen sister, admitted that she is scared to raise a girl. She said: “The only things that I fear about raising a girl is that is the fact that you know, she’s going to want to date, and that is not on my f***ing list,’ she announces, wagging her finger. She’s at least going to have to be 45 before she goes on her first date,”
This would mean that 38-year-old Mama June is already a grandmother. She has two granddaughters from her estranged daughter Anna Chickadee. Ella Grace is the third grandchild for Mama June, in addition to Kaitlyn, who is 5, and Kylee, who is 2 years old.
Even though Honey Boo Boo would like her niece to be in a pageant or two like her, her sister claimed that she wasn’t going to let her child partake in the beauty pageants.
