An insider told the publication of the possible new show: ‘They are in talks about having their own show and they will be meeting about it in the next few weeks.’

The source added that the family is currently on their way to LA, although it’s unclear if that is where the meeting will take place. 

‘Pumpkin packed up the SUV. She is driving out there with Josh, the twins who are just two months old, Ella and Bentley. Alana and Dralin are also driving’, the insider added. 

‘They are taking two cars because they can’t all fit, especially with all those car seats!’

MailOnline has contacted representatives for a comment.

It comes after last month Lauryn, also known as Pumpkin, was awarded permanent custody of the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star, according to The Sun which claimed to look at court papers filed in Georgia.

The final ruling was handed down in April.

Testimony from the hearing revealed the former Toddlers And Tiaras cast member had been living with Lauryn and her husband, Josh Efird, 25, since 2019.

The Mama June: From Not to Hot star will be allowed visitations, with permission from Lauryn, and must provide $800 a month in child support payments until Alana turns 18. 

June lost custody of the teen in 2019 after she and former boyfriend, Geno Doak, 49, were arrested on drug charges. 

The former stage mom hit rock bottom and sold her home at a loss in order to get some fast cash. 

When the money was gone, the beauty pageant veteran claimed she lived in her car before she entered rehab. 

Pumpkin received temporary custody in August of that year, and the teen has been living with her ever since. Court documents show both sides agreed to the arrangement.

The custody decision is not the only change to the Efirds’ growing household. 

Lauryn and Josh are parents to Ella, 4, Bentley 10 months and twins, a boy and a girl, born May 19.

This news came after it was announced that June is a married woman.

The star has secretly tied the knot with boyfriend Justin Stroud, 34, in Georgia, after just a few months of dating, it was learned recently.

In a selfie posted by the star, Mama June is seen smiling with her other half as she flashes a giant diamond ring.  

The Shannon family matriarch is said to have wed her younger beau at a Georgia courthouse on March 23, The Sun reported. 

Although June and her younger beau had only been dating for a few months, they sparked engagement rumors in March this year when they spotted shopping for rings together at a jewelry store in Alabama. 

The relationship came after June ended her troubled romance with Doak. 

In a recent interview with The Sun, June gushed over her man Justin: ‘We’ve known each other going on a year now. We were best friends and we decided to take it to the next step in the last eight months.’

It has been reported that Justin was issued with an arrest warrant last October after he violated his probation on drug and burglary charges – and was eventually arrested in Florida.

Mama June was previously engaged to partner Sugar Bear – real name Mike Thompson – for 16 months before they eventually separated in September 2014.

The pair were not legally married but did have a commitment ceremony together.

Sugar Bear went on to marry Jennifer Lamb Thompson.
