Have you heard the song about the pumpkin?
As it turns out, the song is inspired by a true historical event. Pumpkin is the nickname given to Lauryn Mychelle Shannon, a reality television personality.
According to family history, Lauryn was playing video games on her home’s gaming system when lightning struck her house, striking her at the age of seven. Pumpkin was “electrocuted” as a result of the incident, which inspired the song of the same name.
Is It True That Lauryn Had a Wedding? Are you still dating?
You would not believe what I am about to tell you.
Lauryn Efird and Joshua Efird were engaged while she was only sixteen years old. Her engagement to Joshua came about when he proposed to Lauren after only nine months of dating between the two.
Despite the couple’s intention to wait until their wedding day to become parents, she became a mother at the age of 17. Ella Grace Efird, her daughter, was born on the 9th of December in the year 2017.
In April 2018, Lauryn and her boyfriend Joshua tied the knot in Las Vegas with the help of an Elvis impersonator. Her mother, Mama June, escorted her down the aisle in front of a modest gathering of family and friends.
When she is talking about her wedding day, she says the following:
“We were at a stage in our relationship where we needed things to change and be married and be able to work as a couple, you know? Me and Josh have been together for a very long time, and now he’s the father of my child, and you know, ‘I do’ is the start of now and forever.”
She does, however, admit that she still has regrets about becoming a mother at such a young age.
