Honey Boo Boo’s Sister Chickadee, 19, Marries Michael Cardwell!
Just call her Mrs. Chickadee!
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo's Anna Shannon, aka "Chickadee," married Michael Cardwell on Saturday, May 3. Chickadee, 19, is Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson's sister and Mama June's oldest child.
Chickadee has a daughter, Kaitlyn, from a previous relationship. People shared a sweet photo from the wedding, showing Chickadee in her beautiful white dress, kissing her daughter as Michael, 21, holds the little lady.

"I'm so excited to be marrying Michael," Anna/Chickadee told People before the wedding. "Kaitlyn and I are very lucky to have him, and we can't wait to grow our family. I can't wait to be his wife."
Just last month, a source told RadarOnline the couple would trade vows May 3 in a backyard ceremony at a friend’s home in Georgia. “They planned the entire wedding themselves, with no help from a wedding planner,” the source said. “Anna and Michael are even writing their own vows!” They added that Chickadee would wear a white silk gown with sweetheart neckline and a long train (which you can see at least a part of, in this People pic), while her bridesmaids — sisters Jessica and Pumpkin, and best friend Candace — would wear white and teal dresses purchased from Forever 21.
Michael and Chickadee had been dating for a year when he proposed on New Year's Eve — by spelling the words "Marry Me" in pepperoni on a pizza. (Gotta love it!) Fans saw that proposal on the TLC show, and they'll see the wedding itself when Here Comes Honey Boo Boo's new season premieres on June 19.
Michael got Mama June and Sugar Bear's blessing before popping the question, saying he loves Chickadee and Kaitlyn with all his heart and "wouldn't trade them for nothing."
Ah, young love! Congrats to them, and best wishes on many years of happiness, pepperoni pizza, and sketti.
