Anna Cardwell, the sister of reality TV star Honey Boo Boo and co-star of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, has died aged 29.

Cardwell had been diagnosed with adrenal cancer in January 2023.

 In an Instagram post, Honey Boo Boo, real name Alana Thompson, 18, said:

"Anna was in so much pain last night but now we all know she is at peace."

 The family found fame on child beauty pageant show Toddlers & Tiaras before appearing on their own show, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.

"My heart is completely broken," Honey Boo Boo wrote underneath a photo of her family.

Watching my 29-year-old sister this last year battle this horrible disease hasn't been easy.

 Anna was a fighter & still is."

She added: "I would've loved for you to get to see me graduate college but i know you will forever cheer me on in heaven!

 We will all make sure your legacy lives on forever."

Her mother, June Shannon, 44, also posted the same photo on Instagram and said her daughter "gave one hell of a fight for 10 months".

- In May, Shannon confirmed that Cardwell's cancer had developed and was now stage four.
