MAMA June's daughter Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, 15, cried and asked her pregnant sister Lauren "Pumpkin" Efird how will she will "take care" of the family.
The reality star found out about Pumpkin's upcoming pregnancy during the latest episode of Mama June: Road to Redemption.
After hearing the news from her stepmother Jennifer, Alana locked herself in her room because she was upset that Pumpkin, 21, didn't tell her about it.
Pumpkin kept the news from her because Alana had a lot "going on lately" with her money problems.
Pumpkin said: "When you come back from Florida, you said you felt like a burden, and then you were in there cutting coupons a few days ago."
Alana responded: "You and [your husband] Josh are barely making ends meet right now. I mean, how are y'all gonna take care of all of us?"
Pumpkin comforted her doubts and replied: "We always figure it out, Alana, though. We may struggle for a little bit, but we always get back up.
"These are things that I have to worry about, not you. You shouldn't be stressing."
In the confessional, June Shannon, 41, spoke about Pumpkin's parenting skills and revealed: "For many, many years I always struggled to make sure that the girls had what they need.
"And now I wanna be more present so they won't have to struggle."
During the previous episode of Mama June: Road to Redemption, Pumpkin discovered the gender of her new baby.
Pumpkin was surprised to find out that she was expecting a boy.
Although her husband Josh Efird, 24, couldn't attend, Pumpkin planned a gender reveal with their 3-year-old daughter Ella.
Pumpkin gathered the family, which included June and her boyfriend Geno Doak, 45, as they cut into a cake to uncover the baby's gender.
After they noticed that the cake was colored blue, Alana realized Pumpkin was expecting a boy.
June mentioned that most of the women in their family have only had daughters.
In the confessional, Pumpkin admitted that she's excited to give Ella a brother and expected things to "get a lot crazier" with a boy in their house.
Outside of the show, Pumpkin had just shown off her baby bump while wearing her bra and underwear in an Instagram post.
The TV star posted a series of snapshots, which included her ultrasounds photos and four positive at-home pregnancy tests.
Pumpkin wrote: "Well the secret is out for everyone to know now!! Baby Efird #2 coming 2021. After almost 3 years we are finally having another blessing and couldn't be happier. @official_josh_efird."
The reality star made the announcement first in an interview with PEOPLE magazine, before she confirmed the news on social media.
