Pumpkin praises Mama June on Mother’s Day as star is ‘so glad to see how far she’s come’ after overcoming drug battle

PUMPKIN praised her mom Mama June on Mother's Day, as the reality star is "so glad to see how far she's come" after overcoming her drug battle.

Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon, 21, admitted life has thrown "curve balls" between her and her mother in an Instagram post.

In the snapshot, Pumpkin and June "Mama June" Shannon, 41, are both wearing face masks during their visit to the Disney amusement park.  

Pumpkin added, "I’m so glad to see how far you’ve come in your sobriety.

"I can never thank you enough for being the awesome gigi you are to my beautiful babies."

Joining in on the Mother's Day celebration on social media, June "Mama June" Shannon praised Pumpkin as an "awesome mom."

The reality star apologized to Pumpkin for putting her "through hell with my addiction."

Mama June added: "I'm here in present clean n sober with y’all." 

In a separate post, Mama June teased that she will be "sharing a lot of pictures" in the upcoming months.

The month of October will mark about "10 years that we have been sharing our life with y’all," which the TV star pointed out in her caption. 

This isn't the first time Pumpkin praised her mother for trying to remain sober.

In an exclusive interview with The Sun, Pumpkin recently spoke about she was "definitely proud" how June stayed clean for about a year. 

Pumkin said: “She actually got the help this time. I really want to see her transform into a different person mother wise. I want her to be more caring, be around more and take the sentimental moments in. 

“She’s definitely sober today, but she’s going to have to continue to prove that to everyone. I really do hope they remain sober, but I do have my doubts about both of them because they are still in that year of sobriety.”

Previously, Mama June exclusively told The Sun that she had been working hard to “make amends” with her daughters.

Mama June told The Sun: “We’re still trying to make that amends and make sure we are straight. 

“If I can’t be straight, I can’t be straight for somebody else. We’ve only been through six episodes. We’re still writing our real reality story.”

During the latest episode of Mama June: Road to Redemption, Pumpkin's husband, Josh Efird, 24, confessed he couldn't "trust" his mother-in-law and that she "couldn't make the best decision for her children- or at least one child anyway."

The current season of Road to Redemption follows the reality star as she attempts to reconnect with her estranged children.

After Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, 15, and Pumpkin visited June in Florida, the teen extended her trip a bit longer to spend more quality time with her mother.

During last week's episode, Alana shared her emotions as she “finally” accepted Geno’s apology for his past legal and substance abuse issues.
