The Bates will soon welcome another member to their ever-growing family.
Erin and Chad Paine, best known as the stars of Up TV's Bringing Up Bates, a reality show centered around Gil and Kelly Jo Bates and their 19 children, recently announced that they have a baby on the way.
26-year-old Erin, the second-eldest of the Bates children, married Chad in November 2013, and after a difficult journey to pregnancy, including several miscarriages, they welcomed their first child, a son named Carson in 2015. About a year later, their daughter, Brooklyn Elise, arrived.
The couple shared the exciting news about their third child, who is due in April, in an exclusive interview with People. They also revealed the baby's gender and name.
