Hold the phones!
On Tuesday, it was revealed that Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star Lauryn Thompson, or more commonly known as Pumpkin, is engaged! Mama June confirmed the news of her 16-year-old daughter’s relationship status herself.
Isn’t that a little young?
Apparently, the teenager said “yes” to her beau of nine months Joshua Efird├»┬╗┬┐ two days before Christmas while out to eat at a seafood restaurant. If you think these kiddos are simply playing grown up, you’d be wrong as Pumpkin has a shiny new ring on her finger.
However, it seems that Pumpkin’s momma is perfectly fine with the 19-year-old being engaged to her youngster since the twosome are said to be saving themselves until marriage. Though, it seems they won’t be waiting TOO long as Pumpkin and her man want to get hitched once she becomes a legal adult!
We guess, congratulations are in order? Still, we’re going to wait and see how this whole thing plays out before we buy them a wedding present.
You know how fickle young love can be. LOLz!
