Original story (8/7/2017 at 2:27 p.m. ET):
Mama June’s body may be shrinking, but her family is growing!
The Not to Hot star’s 17-year-old daughter Lauryn Shannon, better known to fans as “Pumpkin,” is expecting her first child.
And she announced the news in the most Shannon way possible — in a promo video for the second season of the family’s reality show.
But she’ll have to share the spotlight in Season 2 with her expectant daughter!
Pumpkin shared the exciting news in the network's promo video, revealing she doesn’t yet know the sex of the baby but has an inkling it’s a girl because of all the girls in her family.
“Can you imagine another little f—king me running around?” she says to producers. “You guys are going to be f—ked.”
Lauryn is the second oldest of Mama June’s four daughters; Jessica (“Chubbs”), Anna (“Chickadee”) and of course, Alana (“Honey Boo Boo").
And though the soon-to-be mama is excited about motherhood, she’s pretty nervous, too.
“I’m really excited to be a new mom...I’m really nervous about having a baby because it has to come out of my hoo hah.
“My baby daddy’s head is the size of a freaking watermelon so imagine trying to push a watermelon out of your vagina.”
So, just who is the baby daddy with the watermelon-sized head?
Though Pumpkin doesn’t specify who her child’s father is, Lauryn was allegedly engaged to her boyfriend Josh Efird in 2016, according to E! News.
Hopefully we’ll get more info on the mystery baby daddy’s identity when the show returns.
And if it were up to Lauryn, she’d have this baby sooner than later.
“I hate being pregnant but you gotta do what you gotta do. I wish you could just be pregnant for 30 days but instead it’s f—king 9 long horrific months.”
She also revealed how she thinks Mama June will do as a grandma.
“I think Mama will be an alright grandma. I mean, she can’t really see, but she’ll do good!”
Though the 37-year-old does already have two granddaughters.
Her older daughter Anna “Chickadee” Cardwell, from whom she is estranged, welcomed a baby girl named Kylee in December 2015. Kylee joined big sister Kaitlyn, who’s now almost 5.
Maybe if Not to Hot Season 2 doesn’t work out, Pumpkin can get a cameo on MTV’s 16 & Pregnant? Stranger things have happened in reality TV, guys.
Congrats to the mom-to-be!
