  2. YAY! So excited for them! I don't think that they will be the only Bates couple to have a baby in 2016! And I think there will probably also be a wedding or two!

  16. I'm thinking boy based on the backdrop of the birthing announcement that they did off of their twitter page! Congrats!

  17. I bet that by the first half of the year Michaela and Alyssa will be pregnant too!
    With more married kids and having had merrier times lately, the Bates are likely to outnumber the Duggars. If by chance Whitney and Zach soon have twins, the Bates family is already as big as the Duggars.

    1. Bates are three behind the Duggar clan...soon to catch up.I am so happy for Zach and Whit...may they be blessed☺

    2. Yeah, but they have one more son in law and if Whitney has twins it evens them out to the Duggars!

    3. Why do they always have to be in competition with the Duggars??! I see things comparing them to Duggars and things like "are they the next Duggars"? They are not they are Bates watching them and the Duggars there are many differences their family's minus having 19 kids don't have that much in common. Or at least as much as people say they do. I love the Duggars and the Bates but its anonnying seeing stuff comparing them. Sure they have to same beliefs but they have very different personalities. The Bates kids are very wild and kind of all say what they think. Jessa does but then people are like " oh Jess what are we gonna do with you!! " there just different OK? And something like a baby its kind of upsetting seeing " oh they'll caught up soon"! Its not like its a game where the score almost even. They are having a baby!
