MAME’s daughter June Shannon Lauryn ‘Pumpkin’ Efird (22) and her husband Josh have unveiled the first photos of their newborn twins and shared unusual baby names.
The 22-year-old star of Road to Redemption gave birth by caesarean section on May 19 at a hospital in Georgia, as The Sun originally reported exclusively, and in stunning photos, happy new parents showed their offspring of children, which has now doubled.
The boy’s name is Sylus Ray Efird, and his twin sister Stella Renae Efird.
Stella had 6 lbs 1 oz when she was born at 8:50 a.m., and little Sylus followed a minute later with 5 lbs 4 oz.
Pumpkin revealed that she and Josh are the only people allowed in the delivery room when twins are born.
After the birth, the first visitors were Josh’s mother, stepfather and grandmother.
Delighted, Pumpkin told The Sun: “The family is really happy. Things were stressful adjusting to three babies under the age of one and only five kids in total, but that’s nothing Josh and I can’t stand.
“This just means life is a little hectic, but it’s going to be so much worth it in the end.”
SURROUNDED BY FAMILY, BUT NOT MOM
As previously reported by The Sun, June’s mom (42) has been largely off the scene since the birth of her twin grandchildren as she lives in Alabama with her new boyfriend who has become husband, Justin Stroud, who has to stay in the state because of current legal issues arising from his arrest for violating probation.

In photos that The Sun exclusively revealed last week, Pumpkin’s aunt Jo ‘Doe Doe’ Shannon was seen entering to help new parents.
The 51-year-old aunt was seen unloading a trunk full of baby supplies, including diapers and handkerchiefs, while other family members came to visit with new parents and their four children.
Pumpkin’s sister Jessica ‘Chubbs’ Shannon, 25, was seen helping take boxes from the back of the van to Pumpkin’s house while their amorous aunt Doe Doe grabbed bags.
They will certainly be able to make good use of baby supplies with their growing litter, as Bently is still in diapers – he was born just under a year ago in July 2021.
An insider previously claimed for The Sun that the mother of four children is angry at her mother June for alleged she hadn’t visited her and the babies since she’d first met them at the hospital in May.
The source said: “June has not been here to see Pumpkin or the babies since they were at home.
“She wasn’t in their house to check on her or try to help.”
The insider said that both Josh and Pumpkin are upset about the star of The Road to Redemption.
Pumpkin gave hints on her private Facebook page about how she feels about her mother.
Just over a week after giving birth to twinsPumpkin published an angry letter that seemed to have taken a hit on June 42.
“I’m just blowing this up, but literally NOBODY except YOU should make sure you have a relationship with your grandchildren, niece, nephew – etc.” And if you don’t, you have no one to blame but you.
“If you want to see them, drive. If you want to call them, call. No, I repeat, it is NOT up to the PARENTS to make sure you know their child.
“They are too busy raising that child (ren) and are already active in their lives to worry about how active you are.
“Children will not miss the one they do not know. The end.”
As the Sun exclusively discovered, June secretly married her new boyfriend Justin Stroud34, at a ceremony in the courthouse back in March and lives with him in Alabama while dealing with legal issues.
