Honey Boo Boo’s sister Anna “Chickadee” Shannon gave birth to baby Kaitlyn this summer, who was born with two thumbs on one hand, but her grandmother June Shannon exclusively tells RadarOnline.com that they aren’t going to have surgery for her anytime soon.
“The doctor doesn’t want to do anything right now because they don’t know the full function of the other thumb or if they’re both connected,” June tells RadarOnline.com.
“They just have to wait and see. They don’t want to do it too early, if they cut one off the other could have paralysis or it could make the other fingers not work, so they don’t want to make any rash decisions.”
“She’s just special; I would never make fun of her. That is not right. It makes her more unique and special to us. We don’t even pay attention to it. We don’t make a big deal about it,” June says — going on to say they’re not going to do anything about the double thumbs in the foreseeable future.
“It will be awhile before we go back to the surgeon.”
The season finale of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo airs Wednesday at 10/9c on TLC.
