Mama June's daughter Pumpkin says her kids got her through 'some of the darkest times' after famous mom's drug addiction

MAMA June's daughter Lauryn "Pumpkin" Efird said her kids had gotten her through "some of the darkest times" of her life after her famous mother struggled with drug addiction. 

Pumpkin, 21, shared what she was "most thankful" for in her emotional Instagram post. 

In the first snap, Ella, three, was dressed up in an adorable outfit.

She was sitting in front of a sign that read: "Give Thanks."

As the slide continued, Pumpkin's younger sister Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, 16, was holding onto Bentley, two, during their carousel ride.

The slide ended with an adorable photo of Ella wrapping her arms around Bentley, who was smiling at the camera.

Pumpkin captioned the post: "You guys helped momma through some of the darkest times and I’ll forever be grateful for you two!"

She told her children to "reach for the stars."

Lauryn shares both kids with her husband, Josh Efird, 25.


Back in June, one of those "darkest times" came when Pumpkin made the tough decision and refused to allow her mother to live in her home if her boyfriend Geno Doak received jail time. 

Mama June then argued that she would have “nowhere to go” if Geno was locked up for drug charges

During the Mama June: Road to Redemption season finale, the reality star begged her daughter to come to her rescue. 

June pleaded: “Our court date is tomorrow. But I haven’t really thought about Geno. But he may actually go to jail. 

“And I realized if he does go to prison, I’ll be in Florida by myself. I don’t know anybody there."

She added: "I don’t have a job, I can’t get around.”

Lauryn appeared to be irritated with her mother and asked: “So what does that have to do with me?”

June explained: “I need to come back to Georgia and be your roommate.”

She defied June's wish and said: “Mama, there is NO way in hell you’re moving in with me.”


At the beginning of November, the Mama June: Road to Redemption star showed off her glam makeover in a new TikTok video.

She took to TikTok to celebrate having reached more than one year of sobriety.

The TV star previously lost a lot of teeth and had missing patches of hair due to her years-long battle with drug addiction.

She captioned the clip: "I never want this feeling to ever end. Damn, life is amazing each and every day. If you know, you know."

In the aftermath, Geno was sentenced to 16 months behind bars, while June managed to avoid any jail time and had received community service instead.
