The eldest daugther Anna “Chickadee” Shannon, 17, was sired by construction worker David Dunn, 34. As in, David Michael “Sugar Bear” Thompson, 40, is NOT the girl’s father; Sugar Bear is only father of Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson.
Mama, 33, admitted on the show she was very young when she and Dunn conceived Chickadee: “You know, I had Anna when I was 15. I’m not gonna lie to you. Yes, it is very hard. I had a job. Had to worry about taking care of a baby. I dropped out and got my GED. I mean, it was just too much for me.”
Chickadee is also a single teenage mother after giving birth to baby girl Kaitlyn Shannon, born weighing 6 lbs at 7:11 p.m. July 26, 2012, to whom Dunn is now a grandfather. Mama explains further the comparisons in their situations, history repeating itself: “Anna’s baby’s daddy ain’t in the picture. You think that boy’s gonna love and care about you? Negative. All that boy is wanting is to get in your biscuit and get a little piece, and he’s running.”
Dunn, who also goes by “Shorty” and “Bart Simpson,” tells National Enquirer he didn’t know he was a father until his daughter was four-years-old (13-years ago) when taken off prison work detail for a child support hearing. He says: “[June] 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.”
Dunn was previously “sentenced to prison for stealing a handgun in 1995 and again in 1998 for stealing several cartons of cigarettes,” reports the Enquirer.
