Honey Boo Boo looks all grown up during mother-daughter outing

Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson is growing up.

The 12-year-old enjoyed a day in New York City with her mother, Mama June Shannon, on Monday. For the outing, the “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” star — who is nearly going to surpass her mother in height — dressed in a patterned black and white top with dark pants and black sneakers.

Meanwhile, the 38-year-old “Mama June: From Hot to Not” star wore a white long sleeve top and black pants.

Their outing comes days ahead of the season 2 premiere of their show, which documents the lead up to Shannon’s first mother-daughter pageant.

Though she underwent a drastic physical transformation (she lost 300 pounds and dropped to a size 4), it appears Shannon has been struggling to keep the pounds off.

“I’m gonna look smokin’ hot in my dress no matter what,” the matriarch says in a new trailer as she grapples with her size 8 pageant gown and fails to get it on.

“What did they do to my dress? Did they take it in another inch or two? This is (expletive). The pageant is in a couple weeks, I don’t have time to buy another dress. Alterations take forever ... ,” she tells viewers.

After unsuccessful attempts to put on the dress herself, Shannon recruits her sister to help. 

“You need like a 12! You were a 4!” she tells a disgruntled Shannon. 

“Mama June: From Not to Hot” season 2 premieres June 15 at 9 p.m. ET on WE tv.
