Mama June Shannon’s 17-year-old daughter, Lauryn Mychelle Shannon, better known as “Pumpkin,” announced she was pregnant two months ago.

She said on a preview for the new season of “Mama June: From Not to Hot”:

“I’m really excited to be a new mom, but there is some challenges that I am gonna have to face. I’m really nervous about having a baby because it does have to come out of my hoo-ha.

I really wish I could have this child right now … I hate being pregnant, but you know, you gotta do what you gotta do.”

Now, Pumpkin is revealing the gender of her unborn child in a new video posted by WEtv and “Entertainment Tonight”:

She said:

“We are going to find out what I’m having. I kind of want a girl because of course, another me. Duh.”

Following a big bite into a cupcake, the teenager excitedly exclaimed:

“It’s a girl! I freaking told y’all!”

Pumpkin then admitted that while she’s excited to have a girl, she’s not excited about the idea of her daughter dating. She said sternly: “That is not on my list.”

She also added that she and the baby’s father — who is believed to be her longtime love, Joshua Efird — have a long list of names they plan to pick from once the baby arrives.
