  • Honey Boo Boo shared an adorable update on her Instagram
  • She uploaded photos featuring her nephews and nieces
  • Fans praised the teen star for being a good aunt

Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson is a proud aunt.

The 17-year-old reality star took to Instagram Thursday to share photos of herself with her sister Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon's kids in a parking lot. One photo showed the teen carrying 1-year-old Bentley Jameson as she smiled at the camera, sporting a pair of sunglasses.

Other photos showed Pumpkin's eldest child, 4-year-old Ella Grace, standing in front of her aunt while holding onto a baby stroller, containing one of the twins. Pumpkin gave birth to twins Stella Renae and Sylus Ray in May.

"Always gonna ride for them," Alana wrote in the caption.

Fans quickly flooded the post with positive messages and praises for the former "Toddlers & Tiaras" star for being a loving and caring aunt to her nephews and nieces.

"Oh, how precious! You're a good aunt, Honey Boo Boo," one wrote.

"Such a sweet older auntie! Taking good care of those little ones and spreading that love! [Your] sister relationship is amazing, and [you] are always so supportive of each other," another added.

"You are such a good auntie," a third user commented.

Honey Boo Boo's update came days after Pumpkin revealed on social media that she and her husband, Josh Efird, got to spend some quality time together in Las Vegas.

The "Mama June: Road to Redemption" star uploaded a couple of snaps and a video from their hotel room, and fans were thrilled to see them taking the time to unwind amid their busy family life.

"I love how she's just loving her man, raising her kids and sister and minding her business. Get it, Pumpkin," one fan said at the time.

"Love it!! It's great to see you two having a little getaway," another wrote.

This weekend, Alana and her sister's family are bound for an Atlanta, Georgia, fan event. The reality siblings announced late last month that they would be resuming their meet-and-greet tour starting with their Nov. 13 fan gathering.

The announcement came as a shock since they previously decided to cancel their tour after Honey Boo Boo claimed that Boston Market ripped them off during their previous fan event.
