Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson

Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson (born to Mama June and Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson on Aug. 28, 2005) is no longer the tiara-wearing toddler that we met in 2012, though she has continued to participate in reality TV shows such as Dancing with the Stars: Juniors, The Masked Singer, and Mama June: Road to Redemption.

In 2019, her half-sister Lauryn was granted temporary custody of her after Mama June was arrested. In 2022, Lauryn was granted sole custody of Alana.

On May 23, 2022, Alana posted to Instagram to announce that she was accepted into Georgia Military College's dual enrollment program for the 2022 fall semester. She attended her senior prom in April 2023 with 21-year-old boyfriend Dralin Carswell.

Anna “Chickadee” Cardwell (born to Mama June and David Dunn on Aug. 28, 1994) is Mama June’s oldest daughter.

In 2017, Anna announced her split from her ex-husband and father of her two children, Michael Cardwell, and moved in with her ex-stepdad Sugar Bear and his wife Jennifer Lamb, but it wasn’t long before Anna would find love again. In early 2019, Anna revealed that she was dating Eldridge Toney.

In 2020, Anna — who underwent plastic surgery alongside her sister that year, as previously mentioned — bought her dream home for her to live with Eldridge and her two daughters.

Sadly, in January 2023, Anna was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, as reported by People. Then, on May 4, 2023, Mama June told Entertainment Tonight that Anna had been diagnosed with adrenal carcinoma, which she described as "very rare and very aggressive."

She told the outlet that Anna's daughters are aware of her illness, and that the family is hopeful for her recovery.
