May 2 (UPI) -- Mama June's daughter Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon is a married woman.

TMZ reported Wednesday the 18-year-old television personality married boyfriend Joshua Efird at a ceremony Monday, April 30 in Las Vegas.


"Mama" June Shannon and her daughter Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson were spotted attending the wedding. Sources said Pumpkin and Efird celebrated with family and friends at Buca di Beppo restaurant after their nuptials.

E! News confirmed a marriage license was issued for Pumpkin and Efird last week in Nevada. The couple got engaged in January 2016, and welcomed their first child, daughter Ella Grace, in December.

"I honestly didn't know that I could love a little person so much," Pumpkin told Us Weekly in February. "I want her to grow up and not listen to what others have to say, and if she wants to do something, go after it!"

"I'm not gonna say it's easy being a young mother. It is a hard process, but I've grown into it," she added.

Pumpkin shared a photo with Efird and Ella during their Easter celebration in April.

"Happy Easter From Our Little Family To Yours @official_josh_efird @ellagraceefird," she captioned the picture.


Pumpkin and her family came to fame on the TLC series Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. Mama June, who is mom to Pumpkin, Honey Boo Boo, Jessica "Chubbs" Shannon and Anna "Chickadee" Shannon, now stars on the WE tv series Mama June: From Not to Hot.
