Hold on to your tiaras, Teen Mom fans! 

We're taking you on a wild ride ride to yesteryear, when Maci Bookout was just a little Honey Boo Boo Child in the making. 

Who knew that MTV's hottest mom was a legit pageant princess, complete with big poofy dresses and trophies twice her size? Although we're not surprised — Maci is still a beauty queen, just ask boyfriend Kyle King! — we couldn't help but chuckle when her mom tweeted this picture. 

"#tbt my own personal #honeybooboo @MaciBookoutMTV," she wrote.

Maci's pageant days may be long gone, but it's clear that mama is still beaming with pride. How can you blame her? Not only is her daughter beautiful on the outside, but she's got a great heart — and she's passing down those strong southern values to her son, Bentley.

Are you shocked that Maci was a pageant girl? Tell us below!
