As TV Shows Ace reported, the Bringing Up Bates family is growing again! It was previously announced that Katie Bates and Travis Clark are engaged after courting for a year. Now, Kelly and Gil Bates are talking about this and sharing more special photos from the big day. It sounds like Gil is pretty emotional about the newest engagement and sending his daughter off soon.
Katie Bates & Travis Clark engaged
Travis planned a special engagement for his girlfriend. He even wrote and played a song for her while he proposed. Both Katie’s and Travis’ parents were a part of the engagement in Florida.
Travis set up a rug and scattered rose petals around it in the shape of a heart. Behind the rug, there’s a sign that reads, “Will you marry me?” In the background of the photos, the beach is visible.
Bates family shares more about the special day
In an Instagram post, the family shared a series of professional photos from the sweet engagement. They write:
“Congrats Katie and Travis! It has been such a joy to watch y’all’s relationship grow, and this moment was absolutely incredible to witness! Dad is already getting teary eyed at the thought of another daughter walking the aisle in the future, but at the same time, we couldn’t be happier for you! I’ve heard it said many times that God writes the best stories, and it’s obvious by the smiles on your faces that you wholeheartedly agree! (Thank you, Travis, for all of the sentiment you put into making this day perfect for our little girl!)”
In this shot, Katie and Gil hug. It’s easy to see that the father and daughter have a tight bond. As Kelly mentions, this is already an emotional time for the dad.
Since the pair just got engaged a few days ago, there are no public details about their upcoming wedding yet. Nonetheless, fans are happy for the pair, as well and the Bates and Clark families. Fans hope to see more as their relationship grows. They also wonder if the wedding will be a part of UPtv’s, Bringing Up Bates.
