'Toddlers And Tiaras': Self-Proclaimed 'Hardcore' Mom Gives Birth, Returns To Pageant For Crowning (VIDEO)

This week, "Toddlers & Tiaras" (Wed., 9 p.m. ET on TLC) may have introduced viewers to the most committed pageant mother yet. Loni is a mother of two, and pageants have been a part of her family's life since before her kids were born.

As soon as Loni learned she was pregnant with a girl, her first child, she started registering her for pageants. Three years later, Loni was pregnant with her second child and her first was competing as she'd planned.

Her son laughs now when sharing that he was born at a pageant -- or at least near one.

"I labored, had Christian and, 12 hours later, made it back for crowning," Loni said. "Any mom that can have a baby and, 12 hours later be at crowning is pretty darn hardcore." She certainly seemed delighted talking about it.

Check out more hardcore moms and tots every Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET on TLC's "Toddlers & Tiaras."
