A year after her family became embroiled in a devastating child molestation scandal, in which she was a victim, Anna Shannon is a mom again.

The former Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star and her husband, Michael Cardwell, welcomed daughter Kylee Madison on December 9.

The 22-year-old, also known as Chickadee to fans, gave birth at 12:06 p.m. in a local Alabama hospital, she told friends on her Facebook page.

Shannon’s daughter Kaitlyn, 3, got to hold her little sister.

Though Anna has made up with her formerly estranged mother, Mama June Shannon, the Marriage Boot Camp cast member did not join her.

Instead, Shannon’s in-laws were there by her bedside.

The younger Shannon (now Anna Cardwell) was betrayed when her mother was caught cozying up to her child molester ex-lover Mark McDaniel.

Mark abused Anna when she was a girl and did time.

This also did a number on June’s marriage to Sugar Bear, though if you watch Marriage Boot Camp online, you know there’s more to that story.

A lot more. These people are straight up crazy.

Anyway, a year later, the family has ended their nasty feud and June Shannon has stopped having sex, so it’s a win-win for the world all around.

Congrats, Anna!
