The littlest member of the loud, proudly redneck family in TLC’s hit reality series Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is already sparking controversy. Tabloid reports have claimed that outspoken matriarch “Mama” June has mocked her 5-week-old granddaughter Kaitlyn, who was born with four fingers and two thumbs on the right hand.
Not true, June, 33, says of the reports. “We have embraced [the abnormality]. It makes Kaitlyn more special to us.”
The baby, whose mom is June’s 18-year-old daughter Anna, was born on July 26 weighing 6 lbs., 2 oz. June – herself a teenage mom who was just 15 when she had Anna – has been helping to care for Kaitlyn while Anna prepares to finish her senior year of high school in the family’s hometown of McIntyre, Ga.
This baby in five years time:
