There’s going to be a new member of the Bringing Up Bates family! Tori Bates and her husband Bobby Smith are expecting their third child.
As Romper exclusively confirms, the couple is pregnant again. Tori says, “Life has been crazy fun with our two precious little boys, and our hearts are so thrilled to announce that God has given us a beautiful baby girl.”
The couple currently shares two sons, Robert Ellis IV (Kade), 2, and Kolter Gray, 10 months. Tori thinks that her sons will take good care of their sister. She says, “We are so looking forward to the day we get to hold her in our arms. Kade and Kolter are going to love learning to protect her and take care of her so sweetly!”
Along with revealing the baby’s gender, Tori also shared her due date and the baby’s name. She says, “Charlotte Raine will be here in June 2021.”
Tori and Bobby seem to be very excited about their third child on the way. The Bates daughter says, “God is so good to our little family, and He pours out his blessings on us in so many ways that we could never deserve.”
Tori Bates isn’t the only expectant Bringing Up Bates star
Several new babies will be welcomed into the Bates family this year. As mentioned, Tori is due in June. Her sister Josie Balka is expecting a baby in June as well. At this point, Josie hasn’t announced her baby’s gender. Josie and her husband Kelton also have a one-year-old daughter, Willow.
Additionally, Alyssa Webster is pregnant. She’s due in February and is having a baby girl. She plans on naming her baby Maci Jo. Maci will join Alyssa and John’s three daughters, Zoey Joy, 2, Lexi Mae, 3½, and Allie Jane, 5.
Whitney Bates, Tori’s sister-in-law, is pregnant with her fourth child. She and her husband Zach currently have three children, Bradley Gilvin, 6, Kaci Lynn, 4 and Khloé Eileen, 1. Their baby is also due in June.
It’s going to be a busy year for the Bates family. And it’s only January, so another pregnancy could be announced sometime later in the year. Plus, there might be a courtship or another exciting announcement in the works.
