Honey Boo Boo Family Drama: Who are the Daddies?

by at . Comments

Viewers of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo are familiar with the show's six-year old star and her dad, David Mi­chael “Sugar Bear” Thompson, who is also featured on the tragically popular TLC series.

But what of Honey Boo Boo's three siblings and their biological father? The National Enquirer has learned that June Shannon conceived all of her kids via different sex partners - and the three she can name all possess criminal records.

Honey Boo Boo and Family

First there's Thompson, who served five years in a Georgia prison in 1998 for a string of robberies.

Then there's David Dunn, the fa­ther of June’s oldest daughter, Anna “Chickadee” Shannon (who just gave birth to a baby girl herself). He was sentenced to jail in 1995 for stealing a handgun and again three years later for swiping several cartons of ciga­rettes.

Dunn tells the newspaper of June: “She took my vir­ginity and I took hers... Anna looks just like me. They want­ed me to sign away my rights to Anna, but I refused. I don’t know who my own daddy is, and I always want Anna to know who her father is. But June won’t let me see her.”

Then there's Anthony Ford. A registered sex offender in Georgia who served time in 2005 for sexual exploitation of a child over the Internet, he's the father of 15-year old Jessica “Chubbs” Shannon.

He claims to pat $300/month in child support, but says June won't allow him to see his daughter, either.

Finally, according to the report, no one - June included - knows the identity of of 12-year old Lauryn's father.

Says a family insider to the tabloid: “There are all kinds of family stories about who Lau­ryn’s dad is. I don’t think June even knows who it is....

"We’re convinced June never got married to any of her kids’ fathers because she gets child support and welfare payments for each of those kids – if she got married, the money would stop.”

It was quite the week of reality television. Relive all the craziness now.


Anna is the prettiest of all those. Hope she find the way for her own and her baby. Anna easily could have a model career, because she looks like an angel. The other older girls are very pretty they need to loose a little weight, but they dont even need to try, they are really pretty. Ironic enough, alana, is growing ugly, she is not beauty material at all. June is a cash whore, she lives on the children, welfare.


Oh my god! PEOPLE please just stop watching this crap....IT will ROT your brain!!! LOL


Anyone who watches this show is a complete moron. You must have an IQ of 70 or below if you think watching fat people stuff themselves on junk food, listening to a child talk about greed, and poor parenting is entertainment, then YOU seriously have no life. Go do something productive with your Wednesday nights. IDIOTS!!!! This is why our country is big trouble. Too many stupid people who support more stupid behavior.

@ Lerome Tyson

You're the one quoting the show,the family,what they're doing,saying and even what night the shows on? Then... You get online search for articles about what you're preaching against and trying to part your ignorant opinions on others,so who needs to "do more productive things with our lives"? You Larome Tyson are a barely living oxymoron,a stupid genius and are the last person anyone should listen to or take advise from.

@ Lerome Tyson

Have you Watched The Show? Alana Makes Hilarious And Insightful Commentary. Certainly More Insightful And Positive Than Your Negative, judgemental Idiocy. I Have An Iq Of 140, Which I Would Wager Is MUCH higher Than Yours. Unless You Are One Of The 2,000 WhO Has A Comparable Or Higher IQ. Based On Your Comments, I Am Certain You're Not. Do Society A Favor, Don't Reproduce (That Means Don't MaKe Babies).

@ Royce

Haha right on. I was never a fan until now. Well I'm not a fan but I love reality tv and documentaries. Honey boo boo's family just represents a different part of society that many people are not used to. I love learning about different people, cultures and ways of life. Just because they are different doesn't make then IDIOTS. Learn to get out of your little box and appreciate everyone for the good they have to offer.


I love this show!!! Its pure white trailer park trash entertaining . I hope this show stays on for a couple years. Good for Honey boo boo she recieves money from Tlc and is helping her family raise up from poverty. Tlc needs to resign them to more seasons . They are obviously entertaining the public due to its high rating and for the haters out there shut your pie holes!! That little girl helps her family and herself financially. i say good girl. God bless them and again its entertainment so all of that is a put-on.

@ jade

Shut your pie hole? You deem this crap worth spending your precious hours here worth wasting on? Please do not reproduce. I have never watched this show and never will. My sister in law does and she told me to watch it. I don't mindlessly listen to others and instead looked it up on the Internet...disgusting! They should suck up all the gravy they can since this hopefully is a fad which mercifully will soon pass.

@ lkeyes21

First hand experience is no comparison to reading about it on the internet. Once, I looked at some pictures taken from the Hubble Telescope, so I'm an expert on outer space. I also looked up appendicitis and appendectomy procedures online, so now I'm a surgeon. That's the beauty of the internet. You can read whatever you want, and never have to experience it because through Wiki, you've become an expert. Good on ya, Pal.


So, you'd rather be watching a bunch of sports wife ho hoes talks about their next hookup, watch MTV hookups, watch Jersey hookups+illegitimate pregnancies? Just because Honey Boo Boo's family is sloppy, don't haterate. Watch the news sometime. Watch the people being interviewed when a crime has been committed and you will see the BooBoo's fit right in with a VAST number of American, of all colors.

@ booboobanker

How sad that so many are like this...I don't watch any of this so-called "reality" television. How real is it having a crew in the house. You betcha there is probably worse to see when the cameras aren't rolling. ...VAST number of Americans fit right in with this? Nasty hillbillies maybe.




This show is a disgrace.... Please take ths mess off the air!

@ Loretta

Don't blame the stars or producers for the monstrosity that is reality television. Place it where it belongs; squarely on the writers that went on strike a few years ago. They wouldn't write scripted shows, so rather than broadcast endless reruns, reality tv was born. No writers, no script, low production costs, low fees for "talent". TV series writers went on strike and it came back to bite them in the ass. They went on strike and it will lead directly to their extinction.


I love honey boo boo, she is so funny and her family seem to take an interest in all of her pageants. If you don't like honey boo boo don't go to the channel. as for me and my family I say good luck honey boo boo and keep on filming.


hey ilove honyboo boo so who ever dosent like they are haters what now biocht
