Alana 'Honey Boo Boo' Thompson Gets Dolled Up For Prom With Her Boyfriend After His DUI Arrest: Photos
All grown up! On Sunday, April 23, Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson attended her high school prom, bringing along boyfriend Dralin Carswell as her date.
Before going off to the dance, the reality star took several photos with her beau, nieces and nephews and her sisters. "Mama June" Shannon, who was previously estranged from her daughters, was also there, as was her husband, Justin Stroud.
The Toddlers & Tiaras alum stole the scene in a pink sequined gown and revealed via Instagram that her long wavy tresses weren't her own.
"Y’all already knew i was gonna eat this up 🤩! @jhanaecoleman on the wig install @lashedby_dannii on the lashes @jordan.mckenzie5 on the makeup @nailedbyjurneeb on the nails @glamxtencollection on the wig @_kiratowns on the dress," she captioned a set of photos on social media.
Thompson, 17, went all out for the pictures, even hiring a horse and buggy, with one snap showing Carswell, 21, assisting her into the carriage.
All is still smooth sailing for the couple after Carswell was arrested on February 28. As OK! reported, the young adult was driving around 4:30 p.m. when cops scanned his plates and learned there was a warrant out for his arrest.
