Others could not wait to see the bond that new baby Bentley creates with his older sister, Ella, who fans had seen grow right before their eyes as she made appearances on the family's reality shows.

Just as they've done with the birth of their baby boy, the new parents also posted numerous photos when Ella was born. She'd arrived at 5:00 am and weighed 7 pounds and 14 ounces, just slightly heavier than her brother.

The Shannon family became famous from the reality show " Here Comes Honey Boo Boo," a spin-off of the much-famed show "Toddlers and Tiaras."

The family matriarch, Mama June, who had been dealing with weight problems for years, documented her weight loss journey in the show "Mama June: From Not to Hot" and lost up to 300 pounds through a weight loss surgery.

She was able to go from size 18 to size 4, but these newfound body goals came with an array of challenges when Mama June spiraled into gambling and drugs. In 2019, the reality star was arrested for possession of cocaine.

Mama June made a shocking revelation that at the peak of her addiction, she and her boyfriend, Geno Doak, had spent close to $1 million on crack cocaine. In an interview with E News in March, Mama June says:

"I'm just constantly trying to make amends. Right now, I have to worry about my recovery."

These legal problems have seen the 41-year-old lose touch with her relationship with her daughters, and for a long time, she and Chickadee have not seen eye to eye.

Mama June is, however, making amends, and in June, the mother of 4 was finally able to reunite with her four daughters, Alana Thompson,15, Lauryn Efrid, 21, Jessica Shannon, 24, and Anna Cardwell, 26.

The mother and daughters are repairing their broken relationship after six years of not reuniting with her girls. And for Mothers Day, Shannon thanked her mom for everything she has done for them.

She says that despite the curveball life has thrown them, she was still their mother, and she was glad that Mama June was finally fighting off her addiction and thanked her for being a wonderful grandma to her babies.

Mama June is now almost 17 months sober and is keen to keep her sobriety journey going. She admits to having chosen the wrong path but is proud of herself for turning her life around and getting clean.
