Stepping up for the family in such a big way did not got unnoticed by June. The mom of four spoke with In Touch about how Lauryn went above and beyond as a daughter.
“Even though she didn’t have to step up [as a mother figure to Alana], she did, and you know, in our family,” the TLC star said in March 2021. “We’ve always stuck together.”
“Today at 5:01am me and josh officially became parents to a precious 7lb 14oz baby girl,” Lauryn revealed in December 2017 about the arrival of her daughter, and her first child with Joshua. “Everyone meet Ella Grace Efird.”

Over the years, Lauryn has also documented what it’s like to see Ella grow up. “Screaming happy 4th birthday to my sweet, loving, & sassy girl,” she wrote about Ella’s 4th birthday. “Ohhh how the years have just flown by. You’re one of the smartest little ones I know. The way you love me, your daddy, lana, & your sweet bubba just shows what a beautiful soul we’ve created. I’d move the sun and the moon for y’all Ella Grace.”
