Back in August, the 17-year-old reality star announced she was expecting. “So now that the news is out me and josh are expecting a little one ❤️. So happy to start this new adventure with him ??. Love you baby ?,” she wrote on Twitter. But as the due date neared closer, she revealed she was scared about the delivery. “I’m really nervous about having a baby ’cause, I mean, it does have to come out of my hoo-ha,” she said in a video. “My baby daddy’s head is, like, the size of a freakin’ watermelon, so imagine trying to push a watermelon out of your vagina.”
Last year, In Touch reported that Josh, who works as a mechanic, proposed to Pumpkin at a restaurant after almost one year of dating — but not everyone was happy about the nuptials! “I think they’re too young for marriage. I hope they have a long engagement,” Josh’s grandmother Linda told Radar Online at the time. “She’s very sweet, and I love my grandson.”
