Anna Shannon who stands at the height of 5 feet 4 inches (1.62 meters) is a reality star who starred in the hot mess reality show hit, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
Unlike every other celebrity, she has a very different story to tell. At a tender age, Anna faced abuse, pregnancy, heartbreak, and family drama.
Bio: Age, Family
Anna Shannon was born on 28th August 1994 to parents June Shannon and David Dunn in Rockford, Alabama.
She is the eldest of her mother's four children. When her mother gave birth to her, June was too young to take care of her. So, she initially considered giving Anna up for adoption for her aunt and uncle, Janice and James Shannon.
However, the paperwork was never finalized, due to which Anna ended up being raised by her maternal grandmother, Sandra.
Like every other child, Anna did not get a chance to experience a happy childhood. During her childhood, she shuffled between her mother's house and grandmother's house.

Later, her mother, who was starring in the show, Honey Boo Boo, promised Anna to shoot the show for one year and would get her very own house.
While Anna was in her mother's custody, she was sexually abused by her mother's then-boyfriend, Mark McDaniel.
Anna, who suffered the abuse, was disturbed, but with all her courage, she alerted her teacher, who later contacted the authorities.
However, Anna's mother was allegedly skeptical of her own daughter's story. Mama June was upset and did not try to support her own blood.
As there is a saying truth can never be hidden, mama June's boyfriend was indicted on charges of rape, child molestation, aggravated child molestation, enticing a child for indecent purposes and aggravated sexual battery.
Nevertheless, in 2014, Mark was released from the prison, and upon his release, he was again spotted with mama June which led to the cancellation of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.

However, her love life was not very pleasing in the past, like the current one. She was previously dating her boyfriend, Caleb Clark.
Like her Mama June, Anna fell pregnant as a teenager. When she became pregnant, her mother called her to shoot for the show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo only to increase the viewers.
Anna finally gave birth to her daughter, Kaitlyn Elizabeth, in 2012. Her daughter was born with four fingers, and two thumbs, one of her thumb was removed in November 2016. Sadly, Anna did not end up with her baby daddy and eventually split.
Upon her split with former boyfriend, she tied her wedding knot with her husband Michael Cardwell in May 2014. With her husband, she welcomed her second daughter, Kylee Madison, in 2015.
