Nowadays, it’s hard to recognize that fearless and confident young girl who gained worldwide attention at the age of five.
The former beauty pageant winner is now facing overweight issues and cries every day due to her own mistakes.
We reveal what has become of the doll-like Honey Boo Boo 9 years later, how she has grown up, and what she is doing today.
Everyone knows little Alana Thompson, Honey Boo Boo (the girl’s nickname), from 2012.
This little wonder made her appearance on TLC in the 5th edition of the show called “Crowned Babies.”
In the TV show, the girls competed to win the title of Miss.
She amazed everyone with her endless dynamism, warmth, and cheerfulness.
Childlike sincerity and tremendous determination to win made Alana the favorite of the competition.
The launch of the new program took place on August 8, 2012.
The beginning of the show was watched by 400,000 individuals. The girl continued to enjoy her fame. She received $50,000 for each edition.
In February 2015, June, the girl’s mother, “offered” her daughter a new share of fame when she took her to the show “Doctors.”
The woman expressed concerns about her child’s weight and indicated that the asthma pills were the cause.
Although it is important to note the amount of candies, soft drinks, and energy drinks Alana consumed throughout the reality TV show filming.
The program’s dietitians developed a meal plan for Alana that would help the young celebrity shed a few extra pounds.
However, the girl had no intention of doing so. She continued her consumption of fast food, ready-made meals, and treats.
Alana moved with her family. She sometimes does live streams on Instagram, where she answers followers’ questions.
Early fame can greatly affect a child’s mentality. The case of Honey Boo Boo is clear evidence of this.
We can only hope that the young girl overcomes her mental health issues, reduces her body mass, and can build a fulfilling life for herself.
