HONEY Boo Boo shares that she has a boyfriend and her life “honestly couldn’t be better” despite her tumultuous childhood.
Former child star Alana Thompson is all grown up and entering the dating world – eight years after she called it quits on her pageant life.
The 15-year-old took to her Instagram Stories yesterday to open up a question and answers session with her 830,000 followers.
As the TLC star prompted: “Ask me anything you can think of!” one fan wanted to know the teen’s relationship status, asking: “You gotta boyfriend?”
The ex-pageant queen replied: “Yesssss” with a celebration emoji.
When another fan inquired: “how is life,” Alana answered earnestly: “honestly couldn’t be better.”
Alana has not disclosed the identity of her suitor and instead has kept her Instagram feed focused on a series of cute selfies.
The Toddlers & Tiaras alum has been living with her 21-year-old sister Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon since her mother was convicted in March of 2019.
The Mama June star and her latest boyfriend Geno Doak were arrested for possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia.
They have since claimed a life of sobriety.
Fans have been shocked at Alana’s transformation since childhood.
Many followers have commented on her latest pictures remarking on this mature side of the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star.
The television personality started her journey to stardom at the age of seven, when her blonde hair was curled in tight ringlets and she was decked out in fluffy pink tutus for her pageants.
Last week, the reality star posted a new Facebook profile picture.
In it, she wears long fake eyelashes and puckered up for a duck face.
Alana also appeared unrecognizable this past September, when she flaunted a new nose ring and long red acrylic nails.
Her 15th year has been the motive towards change, as the star also donned a new haircut that same month, chopping seven inches off her hair.
Alana and Lauryn have been living in Georgia while their mother fled to Florida with Geno to get clean from their drug addition.
June, 41, and her beau have confessed to spending $150,000 in a six month period on crack cocaine.
Though Honey Boo Boo’s mother has since claimed she is 11 months sober, Lauryn confirmed that she is still taking care of her little sister.
A fan inquired: “Is Alana back with her mom or with her dad? Haven’t seen her with Pumpkin lately.”
Pumpkin answered: “She’s still with me.”
The girls’ mother posted a series of photos celebrating her sobriety last month.
June wrote: “Hey guys, I hope the Christmas season was good to [you] even during this crazy pandemic time.
“Today we are celebrating 11 months clean and sober, and it feels really good, but I wanted to share a couple of pictures with y’all.”
June then shocked fans as she posted a picture before her addiction, a mugshot during her worst moment, and an after image from nearly a year without drugs.
She wrote: “I can’t believe it’s been 11 months. Time really flies by.
“I’m so proud of myself, especially when a lot of people that we know during this pandemic have relapsed, and we have NO RELAPSES.”
