Bringing Up Bates preview: Baby’s name revealed
In another sneak peek for the upcoming episode, Alyssa and John chat about the name they’ve chosen for their fourth daughter. In the clip, they reveal their baby’s name and why they chose it.

It sounds like Kelly is very excited to have a little one named after her. The family teases that the baby will be on the way soon, but they don’t know exactly when. Will it happen in this episode?
