And when the six-fingered bundle of joy was brought into her patiently waiting arms, she was overcome with emotion.

'I love you, Kaitlyn,' she said of her new niece. 'Oh, she’s so soft! Kaitlyn is so cute and wrinkly. I love her.'

When Honey Boo's Boo's mother June looks at the thumb of her new granddaughter, she says: 'It’s better to have an extra thumb than no thumb at all.'

But it wasn't all smooth sailing for the Honey Boo Boo clan. As Anna went into labor, the family were preparing for the Beach Beauties in Brunswick pageant.

Baby Kaitlyn was finally coming, and the
pageant would have to be missed.

In the delivery room, June put a
camera in Anna's face, and in an effort to drive home the message that teenage
pregnancy is not as magical as MTV's reality show Teen Mom makes it out to be, she asked Anna if she would recommend getting
pregnant as a 17-year-old.

The in pain mother-to-be only whined: 'You do what you wanna do.'
