Anna "Chickadee" Cardwell spent her final days married to her longtime love.
The Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star tied the knot with Eldridge Toney on March 4 in Wilkinson County, Ga., per a marriage certificate obtained by TMZ. Her younger sister Lauryn "Pumpkin" Efird served as the officiant for the private wedding.
The 29-year-old died on Dec. 9 surrounded by family, according to her mom June "Mama June" Shannon.
"She passed away in my home last night peacefully at 11:12 PM," June wrote on Instagram Dec. 10. "She gave one hell of a fight for 10 months."
Her death fell on the eighth birthday of her daughter Kylee, who she shared with ex-husband Michael Cardwell.
Anna—who is also mom to 11-year-old daughter Kaitlyn—started dating Eldridge in July 2017, according to her Facebook. Three years later, the two moved into a lakeside home in Milledgeville, Ga.
"Eldridge is great with the girls and we wanted to have a bigger home to raise our family in," she told The U.S. Sun in 2020. "It's like a dream come true."
Before her cancer diagnosis, Anna expressed hope in having a baby with Eldridge. However, she said her body did not produce enough progesterone, making pregnancy challenging.
"We are trying to have a third child, and it's been difficult," she said in a 2021 interview with The U.S. Sun, sharing that she had suffered multiple miscarriages in her pregnancy journey. "It's been a long bumpy road for us trying to have baby number three."
And throughout Anna's cancer battle, Eldridge was right by her side. In May, she captioned a selfie with her man, "Going on to round 3 of chemo."
In the wake of Anna's death, her 18-year-old sister Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson shared a heartbreaking message asking, "Lord please wrap your arms around her 2 babies & our family as the next couple of days will make this all a reality."
"I'm so glad that you waited til i was home to take your last breath!" the Toddlers & Tiaras alum 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."
