ORIGINAL STORY (12/9/15 11:31 a.m.)
Anna “Chickadee” Shannon Cardwell of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo fame has kept literally nothing of her pregnancy private.
She already revealed the baby’s sex and name, and first announced her pregnancy when she was just six weeks along — so it’s no surprise she is open about the fact that she will have the baby today.
Mama June’s daughter told TMZ that she is headed to the hospital to get induced today, December 9, since she is overdue with her baby girl and labor hasn’t been progressing naturally, minus a few on-and-off contractions.
The site also says Mama June, who’s currently doing a stint on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars Season 4 with Sugar Bear, won’t be at the hospital but rather is staying back with Anna and her husband Michael’s 3-year-old daughter, Kaitlyn. We bet Kait is pretty psyched to meet her baby sister Kaylee soon!
Mama June and Chickadee have had a strained relationship, to say the least, since the 21-year-old revealed her mother’s ex-boyfriend, a convicted sex offender, assaulted her as a child. But it’s good to see the mother/daughter duo are trying to make things work.
In May, Anna said she didn’t trust her mom with her kids. “We fuss and fight about this pregnancy thing,” the then 20-year-old said of June disapproving of her having another child so young. It looks like things have somewhat improved since then, however, now that June is on babysitting duty and all.
