Honey Boo Boo, whose real name is Alana Thompson, is set to graduate in less than 30 days! The 17-year-old shared her excitement on Instagram, writing that she is proud of how far she has come. She posted a carousel of photos of herself in different outfits, including a “SENIOR” hoodie, a letterman jacket, and a pink cap and gown. She also gushed about how she didn’t think she would make it this far.
Last month, Thompson went to prom with her 21-year-old boyfriend Dralin Carswell. She posted a slideshow of their prom photos, captioning it with her pronouns. Despite the age gap, Thompson’s sister and Carswell’s mother approve of the relationship. Mama June Shannon also commented on the couple’s relationship, saying that Carswell doesn’t treat her daughter badly and that if they last, it can be her first love.
Thompson began her reality TV career at the age of 5 on “Toddlers & Tiaras”. Now, she is graduating high school and looking forward to the future. Congratulations Honey Boo Boo!
