Who needs Mama?
Anna “Chickadee” Cardwell may have lost her mother when Mama June Shannon decided to cozy back up to the man who molested her eldest daughter as a little girl, but thankfully, the 20-year-old has her own loving family these days.
The 20-year-old’s husband of nearly six months, truck mechanic Michael Cardwell, 22, supported his wife during her heartbreaking week with a cute Facebook post last night.
“I have to say I probably have the…strongest wife in the world,” he bragged to friends, tagging Anna. “Even through all this BS and betrayal she has kept her head high and not let this get her down. Baby I love you so much.”
Just days after their fairytale wedding in May, Anna, Michael and Kaitlyn, her 2-year-old daughter from a previous relationship, left the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo clan’s native Georgia for a small town outside Birmingham, Alabama.
“Michael’s getting a new job,” the stay-at-home mom told RadarOnline.com in April.
Last week, Anna exclusively revealed to Radar that she was the previously unnamed sex abuse victim of her mother’s former boyfriend, Mark McDaniel. In Spalding County, Georgia court papers obtained by Radar, the sick 53-year-old was indicted for rape, child molestation, aggravated child molestation, enticing a child for indecent purposes and aggravated sexual battery. He accepted a plea deal, and was sentenced to ten months in prison. He was released in March 2014.
Though she initially denied any rekindled relationship, Mama June was caught canoodling with her newly released convicted felon ex while appearing to hunt for houses in Georgia. In a terrifying twist, her 9-year-old daughter Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson accompanied the former couple.
Anna spoke exclusively to Radar about her mother’s disgusting behavior.
“I think me and Mama’s relationship may well be over,” she confessed.
