Teen Star Honey Boo Boo, 17, and 21-Year-Old Boyfriend Share Exciting News: ‘It’ll Be a Positive Change for Us!

Alana Thompson, famously known as Honey Boo Boo, and her boyfriend, Dralin Carswell, have a thrilling announcement as they prepare for a significant life change. The 17-year-old reality TV star, known for her role in ‘Mama June: From Not to Hot,’ will be leaving her Georgia hometown to pursue her dreams of becoming a nurse at Regis University in Denver, Colorado.

In a candid conversation with Entertainment Tonight, Alana shared her excitement about the upcoming journey. She revealed that she and Dralin, who is 21, have been in a relationship for almost three years and are ready to take the next step together. While Alana expressed some nervousness about moving halfway across the country and living with Dralin for the first time, she emphasized the positive aspect of the adventure and the new experiences that await them.

Despite their four-year age gap, Alana and Dralin have always defended their relationship against criticism and judgment. They are happy together, and their families fully support their bond, which makes the opinions of fans or critics irrelevant to them.

Alana explained that while she hopes Dralin might be “the one,” they are not rushing into marriage as they understand that life can be unpredictable. She stated that they have discussed their future together, but there are still some aspects they need to figure out in the long run. One point of difference between them is their stance on having children; Alana does not want kids, but Dralin does.

Alana’s half-sister, Lauryn “Pumpkin” Efird, and her mother, June “Mama June” Shannon, were present during the interview to offer their full support. Lauryn, who has had sole custody of Alana since June 2022, emphasized the significance of living together, which allows you to truly know someone. Mama June also shared her thoughts, acknowledging that the move could be a make-or-break situation for the couple.

Despite the new challenges ahead, Alana knows that she can always return home if she finds the transition too difficult. What matters most to her family is that Dralin treats her right, is respectful, and is loved by her kids and his family.

Last May, Alana graduated from high school, and now she is eagerly looking forward to this new chapter in her life at Regis University with Dralin by her side. Congratulations to the couple as they embark on their journey, embracing all the adventures that lie ahead.
