New Family Photo

Happy Monday! The Bates recently took a new family photo that we thought we would share with you. What do you think?

Made up of Gil and Kelly Bates and their 19 kids, 4 sons and daughters-in-law, and 3 grandchildren, the clan is currently 28-strong. Come this summer, after Erin and Whitney each give birth to their second child, the Bates family will hit 30 members!

  1. The picture looks photo shopped.

    1. Of course it is. It was taken by uptv. They photo shop it and maybe put people in different places to see who looks best where. Its pretty difficult to take a good picture with that many people your always repositioning people to see what looks best and you need to figure out whos tallest to go in the back etc.

    1. Michael is not pregnant. Michael is dressed up thats the clothes she likes to wear.
      She would have said If she was pregnant.

  9. Is Trace that tall or is he standing on a box? I can see everyone but I think I like Chad's pic's better.

  10. Lily and Ellie do you know Erin and Whitney's due date? We are expecting as well and can't wait for the arrival of their blessings.

  11. Love the Bates! Although the picture looks photo shopped and several people look super imposed in the picture.

  12. Nice picture. In looking at the way Brandon is holding onto Michaella's stomach I wonder if she is expecting also and it just wasn't announced yet?

    1. He is holding her hip, not her stomach.

  13. Is it me or does it seem like Erin and Alyssa don't get along very well? Like I remember this one episode where Alyssa asked if she was allowed to hold baby Carson, like why would you ask that? Not a big deal if they don't , it's just sort of super obvious to me, I don't think I've ever seen Erin visit Alyssa in Florida and she was missing when Alyssa announced her pregnancy , maybe it was just hard for her though, poor thing!! But on another note, they are all drop dead gorgeous!!!!!!! Kelly sure knows how to make some pretty babies! & Gil too! lol!
