Bringing Up Bates fans saw Jackson last year as he fell in love – with his car. Just 17, it’s not unusual for boys to find their first love involves wheels. This year, he’s looking all grown up and just celebrated his 18th birthday. There’s often birthdays in the big Bates family, and their mom never tires of finding nice things to say to her kids.
Bringing Up Bates – Birthdays galore in the large Bates family
With more kids than months in a year, plus the add-ons from marriages, the Bates family seems to always find one or another person to celebrate a birthday. TV Shows Ace reported in the first week of February, that Trace Bates celebrated his 23rd birthday. Really nice things were said about him on the @thebatesfam Instagram account. And, now his younger brother Jackson just turned 18, more loving words came out to describe him.
The Bates Family Blog reminded fans of Bringing Up Bates last year, that on his 17th birthday, Jackson just loved his car. Alongside a preview of an upcoming episode, they joked about how Jackson was in love. Not with a person, but with his “new set of wheels.” It’s amazing how much a year can age a boy. And now, on reaching 18, he suddenly looks so mature.
Birthday greetings to Jackson Bates
Taking to Instagram, the @thebatesfam account shared a photo of Jackson looking handsome in a black jacket. The loving caption read, “Happy 18th Birthday, Jackson! From a tiny baby to college and a full time job… how has the time flown so fast?” Well, fans also can’t believe how time flies by so fast, either. The post also noted that Jackson seems to have “grown up overnight.”
The Bringing Up Bates‘ mom also noted that Jackson’s very “talented” and learns “so quickly.” In case you missed it, the post also noted that Jackson’s “working for Paine Construction building BIG projects now!” Going on about Jackson’s personality, his mom wrote, “You make us all laugh with your ability to mimic any accent and your uncanny humor!”
Jackson’s big smile and a proud mom
The photo that fans saw on Instagram showed Jackson with his big grin. Mom loves that too, noting, “I love to see your huge smile and to hear you laugh out loud!” Plus, she’s very “proud” of her son and “can’t wait to see what God has in store for [his] future!”
