Here comes Honey Boo Boo, and she’s all grown up.
In honor of her upcoming sweet 16, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson posed for a glamorous photo shoot that was featured in Teen Vogue this week. The former pageant princess reflected on her family’s struggles and said, “I’m proud of how far I’ve come.”
Since her claim to fame with Toddlers & Tiaras in 2012, Alana has landed her own reality show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and appeared on another one that focused on her mother. June “Mama June” Shannon, Mama June: Not too hot.
Now she wants to move away from the Honey Boo Boo chapter of her life and remind people of who she really is as Alana.
“They are completely different people,” she told Teen Vogue. “I would say that I now like this Alana more than the younger Alana.”
As the budding fashionista put it: “My mom didn’t call me Honey Boo Boo. My name is Alana.”
