Reality star Mama June has spoken about her youngest daughter Honey Boo Boo's plans for the future.

The TV family first hit our screens when Honey Boo Boo, whose real name is Alana, was featured on Toddlers and Tiaras at the age of six.

Since then, they've remained on our screens for a decade and have had a string of their own popular TV shows such as Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and Mama June: From Not to Hot.

Although it doesn't look like TV is in Alana's future plans as Mama June revealed to The Sun.

The 42-year-old, whose new show Mama June: Road to Redemption airs Friday on WeTV, said that her youngest is thinking about her future ahead of her graduation next year.

Speaking about Alana, Mama June said: "She has been accepted into some colleges and she graduates high school next year.

"Granted, we've made a career out of it when it fell in our lap, but I don't see Alana doing reality TV at the age of 40."

As Alana is setting her sights on colleges, her mum revealed that the former Toddlers and Tiara star wants to go into a nursing program.

Honey Boo Boo, who first appeared on our screens at six years old, will be turning 17 this August.

Since June's arrest in 2019 on possession charges, she's had a strained relationship with Alana and her three other daughters.

However, June explained in a recent interview with US Weekly that she hasn't given up trying to mend the broken bond calling it a "work in progress".

Trying to help build the relationship back up with her daughter's has helped June stay motivated to keep sober which she has been for 29 months.

She spoke about her past drug use being the reason for the turbulent relationship between her and her kids.

June said: "I still understand where they’re at. … I was pi**ed off as hell [to start]."

"But now that I’ve been in recovery, you know, I can [see] why they did the things that they did. We see each other. We talk. They know when they need me, I’m here."
