Mama June's daughter Pumpkin praises husband Josh for 'stepping up' & being a 'father' to her sister Alana

MAMA June's daughter, Lauryn, aka Pumpkin, praised her husband Josh for "stepping up" and being a father to her sister, Alana.

Lauryn recently announced she and Josh are expecting their second child, a son.


Lauryn shared several pictures of her husband, Josh, in honor of Father's Day.

She captioned the post: "Happy Father’s Day to this handsome hunk I get to call my husband. One day isn’t enough to honor how special you truly are as a father, not only to our 2 but to Alana as well.

"You stepped up when you didn’t have to and we will always be forever grateful for you.

"I couldn’t have picked anyone better to raise and be a father for our little family. We love you babe @official_josh_efird."


Earlier this week, Mama June’s daughter Anna Cardwell praised Lauryn for doing a better job than their mother at raising Alana.

Anna, who is known as "Chickadee" on the family’s show, told The Sun exclusively: “Alana seems a lot better being raised by Pumpkin.” 

Pumpkin may be pregnant with her second child, but Anna says the 21-year-old can handle raising Alana, 15, in addition to her own children. 

“Pumpkin’s got it all, she’s got it. She has a good head on her shoulder. Alana is a lot more mature. Pumpkin makes sure everybody has all their stuff together.” 

The 26-year-old who has two children of her own, added “Alana is doing great in school these days."

Anna, who is the eldest in the family, added: “I’m proud that Pumpkin stepped up with Alana, and how she’s growing up.



In 2019, June was arrested on drug charges, including possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia charges in Alabama.  

She was arrested with her boyfriend Geno Doak, who was charged with third-degree domestic violence, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia.  

It is estimated that June spent a staggering $900,000 in a year on drugs.  

Recently, June posted on Instagram celebrating being sober from drugs and alcohol for 16 months.  

Earlier this month, Lauryn showed off her baby bump in a bra and underwear and called her unborn son her "greatest gift" in an Instagram post.

The reality star, 21, captioned the photo: "My body has given me the greatest gift of life."

Pumpkin also shares daughter Ella, three, with herJoshua.
