Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon turned 23 this week, and her aunt, Joanne “Doe Doe” Shannon, paid tribute to her to mark the occasion.

On Saturday, Mama June’s sister took to Instagram to share a montage of throwback photos featuring Pumpkin and her family with Josh Efird and her sisters, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson and Jessica “Chubbs” Shannon.

Doe Doe then showered her niece with praise in the caption as she greeted the birthday girl on her special day.

“Calling happy birthday to our favorite Lauryn aka @pumpkin. She is an amazing sister, mom, wife, daughter, cousin, niece and smother (sic). If you see her, you see one of her 5 children and she loves them everyone. We love you to the moon and back. Have an amazing weekend,” Doe Doe wrote.

Pumpkin shares four children with Josh – Ella Grace, 5, Bentley Jameson, 1, and twins Sylus Ray and Stella Renae, 8 months. However, she also has her sister Alana (17) under her care after she was given full custody of the latter in June last year.

“Pumpkin, I want to congratulate you on your day, and in my opinion, [you are] an incredible adult. Can handle everything you have to deal with on a daily basis. You have a lot to be proud of, especially your sweet babies and Honey Boo Boo,” wrote one.

“Happy birthday Pumpkin, you are an amazing mother and sister.” another added.

“Happy birthday @pumpkin hope you have a wonderful day! You are the one [queen]. You deserve everything. May your heart be filled with lots of good laughs, love, hugs, fun, gifts and memories to last a lifetime on your special day,” another user commented.

Pumpkin has yet to update fans on how she celebrated her 23rd birthday on Saturday. Days before, she revealed on her TikTok that she and Honey Boo Boo got back to the gym after the New Year. She told her fans that she will keep them updated on her weight loss journey on the platform.

As for Mama June, it was not clear if she greeted her daughter on the latter’s special day. Honey Boo Boo revealed last October that their mother has not communicated with them despite her promise to work on fixing their relationship.
