After almost a year and a half of her getting off her birth control strategies that she got pregnant with Ella.
It was quite surprising for the couple to get their first pregnancy. For their first time, the couple was trying hard however, every pregnancy test turned out to be negative.

Pumpkin also expressed how hard it is going to be for her and Josh to handle the second pregnancy. The reason behind being their long-distance relationship. Josh works in South Carolina and doesn’t stay at home. So all the responsibilities lie on Pumpkin who needs to single-handedly handle their child as well as her pregnancy. It is quite too much to ask from a pregnant lady. Don’t you agree?
Pumpkin is not just a wife to Josh and a mother. In fact, she has added responsibility for her younger sister. She also plays the role of a legal guardian of her sister Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson. She had to take up this role after their mother June “Mama June” Shannon got arrested in 2019.
Alana is a 15-year-old teenager and must be having mixed emotions for becoming an aunt for the second time. According to Pumpkin Alana feels some kind of burden to her elder sister because she feels that her elder sister must be able to live a comfortable life with her family. Moreover, she also has Ella so the presence of Alana can be little extra responsibility on her shoulder.

It will be for the first time in a year that the mother and her two daughters will meet.
