Mama June is a grandmother again!

Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon — sister of reality star Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thomson — gave birth to her first child, daughter Ella Grace, she announced Friday on Instagram.

“Today at 5:01am me and josh officially became parents to a precious 7lb 14oz baby girl. Everyone meet Ella Grace Efird,” she captioned the sweet snapshot of her newborn.

Pumpkin is engaged to her daughter’s father, Joshua Efird, and correctly guessed she’d welcome a girl when announcing her pregnancy in August.

“Because of all the girls in our family, I’m probably having a girl,” she said. “Can you imagine another little f—ing me running around? You guys are going to be f—ed!”

“I’m really excited to be a new mom, but there is some challenges that I’m going to have to face,” she added in a video posted on WE tv’s website. “I’m really nervous about having a baby because it does have to come out of my hoo-ha.”
