Carlin Bates & Evan Stewart’s little Layla tucks into her birthday cake
Layla dominates Carlin’s social media these days. She churns out loads of videos and photos on Instagram and YouTube. And fans of Bringing Up Bates can’t get enough of her. Toward the end of her third trimester, Carlin noted, “Though there’ve been days of sickness, days of exhaustion, days of fear, days of anxiety, we recognize that it’ll be worth every experience just to welcome you into our world!” Judging by her posts since then, the young couple made a wonderful life for their little girl.
