Honey Boo Boo first became an aunt at around age 7 and now at age 9 welcomes a new niece or nephew later this year.
Her sister Anna Marie Caldwell, known as “Chickadee” on the now canceled TLC reality show that propelled the middle Georgia family to national fame, is expecting again.
Family matriarch “Mama June” Shannon reported the news via Facebook:
