Here comes the good news from the Efirdi family. Mama June’s daughter Lauryn Shannon is pregnant with baby No. 2.
The pregnancy came as a surprise to the family. At the same time, the parents are also a little nervous as they think about how to cope with another baby. We all know that Lauryn Shannon and Josh Efird already have a lot of responsibility on their shoulders.
Mama June: From Not to Hot: Lauryn Shannon And Josh Efird Were Not Expecting Pregnancy.
People reported that Ella Grace, the parent of 3-year-old daughter Ella, found out she was pregnant back in November. The news came as a surprise to the couple though. Lauryn Shannon took a long time to get pregnant once again.
She had been taking birth control pills for some time after Ella was born. After that, Lauryn Shannon stayed away from contraceptives for almost a year and a half. Although the couple were not expecting another child, they did not even prevent it.
Moreover, Lauryn Shannon explains that the pregnancy really came as a shock to the couple. Pumpkin explains: “We had been trying, and I’ve been buying pregnancy tests, and they kept coming back up negative.” It came to the point that Josh Efird asked Lauryn Shannon to stop staying as it never seems to be positive. One day, a surprise kit turned up positive.
Josh Efird no longer works from home. He has a job in South Carolina. So it must be difficult for Lauryn Shannon to raise two children at the same time when Josh Efird is away most of the time. Alana Thompson, on the other hand, now feels like a burden on the family. Pumpkin reveals that Alana Thompson wants them to move on with their lives.
Meanwhile, when Pumpkin revealed the pregnancy news to Mama June, she was like “well, you don’t need another one”. We’re sure she must have been happy on the inside.
Lauryn Shannon is excited about her second pregnancy. She even wants to know the sex of the baby. Staar explains that she feels more energetic this time around. She explains: “In the morning, I’m super energized. I can get up at seven and go all day.”
However, the situation was not the same when she was pregnant with Ella. In her first pregnancy, she always felt lazily tired. At the time, the star thought she would never be pregnant again. But this time things changed. Now it’s easier for her to get through the pregnancy.
