Have you heard the Pumpkin Song?

Indeed, the song is based on a truly historic event. Pumpkin is a nickname of the reality TV star, Lauryn Mychelle Shannon.

According to her family legend, Lauryn, at the age of 7, was playing the game system in her house, when the lightning hit her home. The incident caused Pumpkin to be “electrocuted,” and hence the famous song.

Did Lauryn Had Wedding? Still Dating?

You would not believe this.

Lauryn got engaged to Joshua Efird at a tender age of 16. She was engaged to Joshua after he proposed Lauren after the duo were dating only for nine months.

Despite the couple’s plan to save themselves until their wedding day, she became a mother at 17. Her daughter, Ella Grace Efird, was born on 9th December 2017.

Lauryn and her fiance Joshua got married in Las Vegas with an Elvis impersonator in April 2018. Her mother, Mama June, walked her down the aisle in front of a small guest list.

While talking about her wedding day, she says:

We were at a stage in our relationship where we needed things to change and be married and be able to work as a couple, you know? Me and Josh have been together for a very long time, and now he’s the father of my child, and you know, ‘I do’ is the start of now and forever.

However, she claims that she still regrets being a mother at such an early age.

Family and Net Worth

Lauryn did not know that Michael Anthony Ford was her father, who also fathered her elder sister, Jessica. Michael is a registered sex offender. Reality TV star Lauryn's mother is June Shannon, and both mother and daughter are bi-sexual. There’s a bizarre twist considering other members of the family as well.

Lauryn considers herself lucky to have father figures in her life, such as Mike Thompson and Geno Doak.

So, what do you do when one does not have what most considers a typical family?

Yes, of course, Reality TV.
