Since sobering up after her long-running battle with drug addiction, Shannon recently revealed she’s gained weight again – but she’s happy nonetheless.

“With my weight loss, I like to tell people I’ve gained this healthy COVID weight. I’ve probably gained about 60-70 pounds,” she told TooFab in 2021. “Am I happy the way I am? Yes . When I was a size 2 at 150, I was way too damn small. Now I’m 250 and feeling fine. Even when I was 500, people didn’t believe I was 500.”

Shannon has four children from previous relationships, including daughter Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson. PEOPLE confirmed in June that Shannon’s daughter, Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon, was awarded primary custody of the 17-year-old teenager two months earlier.

“People don’t understand the custody thing,” Shannon said page six in June. “It’s not like anyone lost custody. In the state of Georgia, exercise temporary guardianship every year, and [Alana] had lived with Pumpkin in my addiction.”

“At the age of 12 you get to make your choice, so Alana chose to stay in that environment,” she continued. “It’s not that I don’t see Alana, it’s not that I don’t speak to her because I see her, I speak to her, we communicate.”
